Eurachacha, Assault! Ragnarok
Meanwhile, another RO title is getting ready to launch this week as well, but this time, it will be an official release for Eurachacha, Assault! Ragnarok (KR). What sets this version apart from the other RO games? This one can be played on mobile and HTML5!
Eurachacha, Assault! Ragnarok (KR) is another MMORPG under the RO franchise, developed by Dream Network Shanghai and will be published by Gravity. Players will be able to play the game in a variety of platforms including mobile, and PC web browsers (HTML5). One of the main features of the game is that it will have autoplay and the party system where you can add another character you made yourself into the party. Up to 5 characters can join.
Even though both mobile and PC version shares the same game title, there is no cross-platform so no data will be shared between the two versions. The mobile version will be played on a vertical screen, while the PC/browser version will have a landscape orientation.
“As for the type of service I have been very concerned since the beginning of development. But when I think that the characteristics of mobile and PC players are different, so we decided to provide separate services, but if there are feedback or suggestions from players about it we will have to combine the 2 versions.”Jeong Il Tae, EA!RO Team Leader
Eurachacha, Assault! Ragnarok’s gameplay will focus more on auto-play. The game will still run even if the player is offline and will still receive prizes. According to Gravity, this will give the players more time to focus on other contents like PvP, Territory battles, Guild Wars, and less time worrying about grinding. Eurachacha, Assault! Ragnarok is set to launch on September 19 for South Korea. You can visit the game’s official website for more info.
