MU Legend’s operation trades hands from Webzen to Valofe Global

    
5

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Valofe is the leftovers shelf of the MMO fridge: The publisher was first handed the keys to Riders of Icarus after Nexon decided to let the game’s contract run out, and now MU Legend publisher Webzen will be passing off the game to Valofe Global roughly two years after its soft launch in November 2017.

A press release from Valofe has assured players that the exchange from one publisher to the other will be as smooth as possible, while the MMO transfer itself will include all future content updates and events. The publisher is also “keen on giving continuous updates” according to the announcement.

Valofe will officially be the publisher for MU Legend on Tuesday, November 19th. For those who are actively playing, you’re asked to pre-migrate your accounts via this migration page between now and November 19th. Those who do so will get a bundle of goodies including 30 days of Premium access, a number of consumables and boosts, and two level 80 armor set boxes. More details can be found on the game’s site.

I hope the transition goes better than Riders of Icarus. My account is still inaccessible several months after the handover.

I heard Atlantica also had a slow and rough start but it went a lot better than the original provider after the transition period. I got a friend who loves Atlantica

Yes but what is the difference between original MU(2003ish game) and MU Legends? and isnt it weird Webzen keeps one of the versions and handles another to some other provider? Also Valofe seems to work like Redfox Games that picked 9 Dragons, RF Online, Twelve Sky etc

Mu Legend is actually a totally different game and is a sequel to the original Mu (or prequel? There is time travel involved…). It’s actually quite decent imo, but definitely tends more toward a story-driven PvE type of experience rather than the competitive pvp/seasons design of the original, which seems to have alienated much of the original’s fanbase.

This move over to Valofe, as opposed to Riders of Icarus which Nexon only published and didn’t develop, is much more concerning here, as Mu Legend was developed and published by Webzen, and it’s not just the english/global version being transferred, even the KR version is. I’ve heard before (back when the last class for Legend came out), that Webzen sunk a ton of money into the game’s development and was far from satisfied with its reception.

I see, found a video that made Legends looks more actionish combat too. The original had channels both PVP and PVE back when I tried it and I believe it was under gamersfirst at the time too
