There has been a dearth of free-to-play games on the market, but luckily, Gravity Co. is looking to remedy that with a sequel to Ragnarok Online. Well, okay, maybe not a dearth, but there have been few... Well, okay, a lot. Look, this is another free-to-play game on the market, and it's the sequel to the Korean MMORPG from 2002 (or 2003, if you're in North America... and 2004 if you're in Europe or Australia). The aptly-named Ragnarok Online 2: Legend of the Second can be in your digital hands tomorrow, in fact!
The original Ragnarok Online was extremely popular in its day, and, while it maybe didn't invent many MMORPG staples, it did make them commercially popular. It went free-to-play a few years back, which is a trend the sequel is continuing. Built on the skeleton of Ragnarok Online 2: The Gate of the World, Legend of the Second is sort of like the second Ragnarok Online's equivalent of A Realm Reborn: Final Fantasy XIV, where it is a complete reworking of the base game. It brings in a lot of the old systems from the original game, but follows in the second game (as well as the recent spin-off, Ragnarok Odyssey) in that it plays in 3D rather than the original game's sprite-based 2D.
Aside from that, the sequel is also to be available on Steam as well as WarpPortal, Gravity Co.'s own website. Both Steam and WarpPortal have it available to download early, where it will be launching May 1st at 3:00 PM Pacific, on PC.
