It’s official! Ragnarok Online is coming back. This landmark gaming announcement was made during the Ragnarok Festival event last May 7, 2017 at the SM North EDSA Annex in Quezon City. Hundreds upon hundreds of players flocked to the event to witness the announcement, gaming and cosplay competition, rock band performances and more.
Today, Electronics Extreme Ltd., and ELITE, the publishing partner companies behind the relaunch of Ragnarok Online, are set to answer all of the questions that gamers, media, and bloggers have been asking. Electronics Extreme currently owns the publishing rights to Ragnarok Online for the country and ELITE is its Philippine publishing partner.
Ragnarok Online enjoyed a resurgence through its renaissance in Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia. Since it was launched in 2003, close to 10 million people played the game in the Philippines. The game introduced Filipinos to the world of gaming adventure and competition also created lifelong friendships. It was so popular that Ragnarok Online was made into an incredibly known 26-episode anime series.
Kamphee “Ken” Piromward, Managing Director of Electronics Extreme will share the plans for Ragnarok Online.
According to Piromward, Ragnarok Online was relaunched in Thailand last year and enjoyed critical and commercial success. It currently enjoys 93,000 Peak Concurrent users with five servers. Electronics Extreme made sure concerns were addressed. Bots have been one of the major reasons players stopped enjoying the game. Ken and his company offered over 40,000 USD for the Ragnarok Thailand Championship, their Esport campaign.
Ragnarok Online Philippines is back
Electronics Extreme and ELITE have great plans for Ragnarok Online. Piromward promises that the game will be more community centric. To show this commitment, Electronics Extreme and Elite started to invite active Ragnarok Online Guild Leaders to a Q&A Session.
He revealed that there will be Custom Events for the Philippines and a number of Ragnarok Online Key Items which were previously acquired through in-game purchases, will now be found in-game. Players will initially experience 2-1 character classes, improved monster spawn points, the Guild War feature and so much more!
ELITE, Extreme’s Philippine publishing partner, will make sure the game and its community activities are optimal to provide the best gaming experience to Filipino players. The Ragnarok Online Closed Beta Testing will commence very soon.
