Atlantica Online raises its level cap and throws itself an 11th birthday party

    
8

Believe it or not, January 2019 marks the 11th anniversary of the nautical MMO Atlantica Online. Just because it’s an odd year doesn’t mean that the team is taking it easy, either. Big events and updates are rolling out all month long.

The fun starts with the return of Atlantica’s mentor system. This gives mutual benefits to both mentors and mentees, incentivizing new and experienced players to enjoy the game together. The game also just raised the level cap to 200, added 13 level 170 talents, and added a new PvP mode called Chaos Ladder. That last one is coming with a second patch and will allow people to participate in ranked battles without having to worry about a mismatch between equipment levels.

Some sort of fun birthday event is also slated to arrive at some point this month, although the studio is being a little coy on the specifics of this party.

Fun fact, Atlantica has a mobile sequel that actually is somewhat fun and contains a lot of the same gameplay called “Legion of Heroes” – not to be confused with “Atlantica Heroes” which is being billed as a sequel and yet is an action game rather than a turn-based strategy game.

Nexon was the one who launched Legion of Heroes as well, and also decided to drop out and let the developer take back over publishing of the game just like they did with Atlantica Online.

I played Legion of Heroes back when I wasn’t so hard on games that you can get an advantage in spending a lot of money, so I can’t quite remember if it was pay to win or not. I did enjoy it and always meant to go back, I see it’s still around.

Oh, Atlantica. I’d love nothing better than to see it’s core unit-based tactical combat revisited in a modern title. I’ll never, ever forgive Nexon for the P2W they drowned that game in. Could have been a world-beater.

Oh, wow. I thought this game shut down a few years after it changed hands from Nexon?

I don’t think Atlantica Online is actually a “nautical” mmo. AFAIK you run around on-foot most of the game and combat is turn based. I can see how you might make that mistake when writing up a quick press release post. :P

Atlantica still exists, is still adding content, and is even hosting new events?

Yeah. We got uniforms and everything. It's really great.
