The RaiderZ reboot updates progress on questing, animations, and passive skills

It’s been a long time coming: Mansangsoft has been working on a reboot of the sunsetted MMORPG RaiderZ since 2017, with intermittent updates along the way making it clear it was going to retool the game extensively, not just slap it back online. This week, the studio has dropped a development video that gives an overview of the game’s progress over the second quarter of the year.

“Continuous Quest Processing System – We have improved the main story quest so that you can start and finish in the UI without having to go to the NPC. Of course, will introduce a separated UI for maximizing the character’s emotion.

“Separate animation – The RaiderZ’s weapon animations were pretty not diverse so far. for example, one-handed sword and one-handed mace were using the same animation. But we thought this is not matched with the RaiderZ’s action sense in pursuit of non-targeting game. So we separated the various weapons’ animations and modified them to change depending on weapon type.

“Change passive skill – We are making various contents based on RaiderZ’s worldview. One part of that is the change of passive skill. This passive skill type exists in many games of course, but we think this passive skill system will make RaiderZ more fun. (You can check the prototype of this from our video.)”

Masangsoft casts rez on RaiderZ - Can't kill the Z! RaiderZ, that is. Masangsoft is apparently trying to resuscitate the title, which sunsetted under PWE's banner in 2015. "Masangsoft have been looking at the MMORPG RaiderZ…

Can they change it’s name to something non-stupid?

Probably keeping it for the recognition because it does still have it’s fans, and apparently even so much that they have private servers for it. So when this releases they’re going to want people to come back who played before.

I’m looking forward to RaiderZ with slightly less excitement than my weekly grocery delivery, but I will give my respect to these guys for overhauling it and putting actual work in compared to the publishers that grab dead MMOs and lazily haul them back up for a quick buck.
