"The first game of the franchise - MU Online - had its release in 2001. It's been nearly 16 years since the month that marked the beginning of a very long journey, one that still influences millions of players around the globe. A very innovative product for the time, the game featured immersive 3D graphics, great character building and beautiful maps to discover. These factors, combined with a dedicated community, have made the game a huge success with more than 56 million registered accounts since its release. To this day, we keep its servers up and running and are constantly developing new updates."
With regard to MU Legend, the last two CBTs, followed by a world stress test successfully completed on September 23, have attracted hundreds of thousands more fans. Among the messages addressed to developers, the strongest and most vibrant echo heard among the great community of testers and followers of MU Legend has been "We love MU Legend!". This game will be the next to be released after MU Online, the classic from years ago, and MU Origin, the recent mobile game, which will take the MU franchise to the next generation.
With MU Origin, WEBZEN has demonstrated that it is possible to convert large PC MMOs into games for tablets and smartphones. This mobile RPG has reached the top spot in Apple and Android stores in China, Korea and other countries. In addition to other exciting elements included in MU Origin, players will be able to find emblematic classes of MU Online, such as Dark Knight, Dark Wizard, Elf and Magic Gladiator. Other items, such as various game currencies, maps, the Crywolf event and a variety of items will also be included.
WEBZEN has already confirmed the official premiere of MU Legend, will begin with an open beta phase that will begin on November 7, 2017. The game will remain true to the style of classic MMOARPG games, and will offer an exciting experience as well as very varied that will reach the hearts of all the followers of MU.
Players will have 4 different classes at their disposal, including Dark Lord, one of the best-known characters in the MU franchise. Followers will remember this class as everyone's favorite clan leader during the memorable Castle Siege weekends that used to be held at MU Online.
Other classic MU events still in force, such as Blood Castle, will also appear on MU Legend. The WEBZEN development studio has been able to replicate this classic MU Online event, but has added new features such as new bosses (even more difficult) and an original reward system.
The refining of items, which was one of the most sophisticated and popular elements of MU Online, capable of captivating players for years, will reappear in MU Legend, although in an evolved form.
The WEBZEN team has also confirmed that, despite all the content that has been shown during the CBTs and stress test, new updates will be made linked to the MU franchise in the short and long term.
The ARPG and hack 'n' slash genres, originally inspired by board-based role-playing games, have been on the market for many years. With the advent of increasingly complex video games, they have evolved and adapted. During games, real-time gaming is more important than the turn-based strategy. In some of these games a specific game system is used in which the player must fight hordes of monsters, to face a boss later. The game usually has short-distance weapons, and although players opt for long-distance weapons, they still run the risk of being hit, resulting in extremely intense gaming sessions.
MU Legend combines all of the elements listed above: frantic fighting in real time, either in PVE or PVP matches. In addition, the community aspects of the game have been adapted by the development study of WEBZEN to ensure the proper implementation of this essential element of any MMO. Players can visit crowded cities, have lengthy in-game chats, access a booming in-game commerce, and form new hunting parties. In addition, we will also nominate the best and worst guild of the game on several different servers. Thanks to the years of experience accumulated with MU Online, WEBZEN counts today with a group of authentic experts who know how to incorporate these important elements into the game.
The MU Legend team from WEBZEN Dublin commented on the following:
"MU Origin has already reached more than 2 million downloads on the Google Play Store and the App Store, and MU Online is approaching its 16th birthday. What's more, MU Legend's Facebook page now has almost 100 thousand passionate fans awaiting the game release on November 7th. Seeing this has really got us fired up, and we're prepared for 16 more years and longer!"
