Remember how RaiderZ was getting a reboot? Yeah, probably not, but it’s happening. PWE shut it down here in the west back in 2015 following the dissolution of the original development studio. But about a year ago, Masangsoft announced it had taken over from that studio and was bringing the MMO back to life.

This past year, Masangsoft has been updating its Facebook page with news on progress, noting how it was focusing on story, repeatable endgame content, and the removal of the class-based progression system. Last week, it even posted up a new video showing off the current state of the UI, the evade system, character creation, and newbie starting zone. It actually looks pretty and not nearly as dated as you might think. Give it a peek!

Maybe they can re-brand it with a less stupid name.

I’m pretty excited for this myself, as I love this game and still play occasionally where it’s available now. Masangsoft looks like they’re doing decent work on it from what I’ve seen. I hope they do continue the effort post-launch and make new content, as I know the main reason this game died in the first place was due to the original developer (MAIET, who also made GunZ) being shut down, and no new content was developed.

On a side note, Masangsoft REALLY needs to get on that DK Online re-release they announced on Steam like 2 years ago. The last update for it was posted in May of this year, which makes me a bit worried for RaiderZ as well. :/

I can’t wait for this to be as bad as it’s original launch.
