Ragnarok Online is changing hands in Europe, and as part of that, the long-running fantasy MMO is relaunching with a different spin under 4game. Closed beta testing will happen next month with the open beta in September.

“After 12 years of service, Whybe Online is closing up the game servers. From now European players can enjoy Ragnarok Online distributed by 4game (Innova),” the new operators said in a press release. “We are getting ready to launch Ragnarok Online in the long awaited Revo-Classic version. Revo-Classic is the combination of the best Renewal and pre-Renewal game mechanics.”

W/e, a lot of the players went to play on the private server Origins Ro.

The live rag servers are a shitshow anyway, and the closure of the EU one was kinda the camel backbreaker. Reopening is idiocy ( specially since it means people will lose their cashshop stuff ) and i’m sure the company that will manage it now won’t be any better.

Any word on whether or not the latest EU release of Ragnarok will involve region locking?
