Ragnarok Journey Philippines, a casual MMORPG launched its international server a few months ago. In a surprising move, developer Gravity has announced that RJ‘s next launch will be in the Philippines!
Based on the popular MMORPG Ragnarok Online, Ragnarok Journey will allow players to battle against the much loved monsters, get into quests with their friends, or battle it out in the arena together with their guilds, right from their internet browsers. It’s a game everyone can play anytime, anywhere, without the need to download and install a client!
Aimed toward casual gamers, the Ragnarok franchise has been re-imagined in an all new convenient AI-assisted adventure style which makes grinding and leveling up easier. Battle monsters throughout the world of Rune Midgard and use skills to traverse through new dungeons and zones.
Some features that comes with Ragnarok Journey are:
- Auto play. Characters goes on full auto mode killing monsters and looting. Ideal when one has to study, do work, watch TV, or even sleep. No time wasted as the game will handle the leveling for gamers.
- Classes. At level 10, players can choose between the Mage or Swordsman class.
- New skills. There are new skills in the game that can be acquired by various means, one by simply adding skill points in any of the character attributes which will unlock new character skills based on the player’s choice of build.
Ragnarok Journey Philippines Grand Party
Last November 12th at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center, Ragnarok Journey Philippines held its first event, the RJPH or ROJPH Grand Party. Fans of Ragnarok, from old and new alike, came from different parts of the country and joined the various activities prepared for them. The early birds also received a plush poring and Ragnarok Journey t-shirts were also given away along with button pins, game posters, special game code, and other goodies.
The grand party was hosted by GMA talents Betong Sumaya and Arianne Bautista, who also gave away through a raffle draw, gaming peripherals from Red Dragon, an ASUS Republic of Gamers gaming laptop, and even a brand new motorbike. The hosts also held a bring me event where mousepads and t-shirts were given to the first to bring the complete set of requirements.
As with any gaming event, it wouldn’t be complete without Cosplay! Sponsored by Cosplay.ph and hosted by Pablo, fans of Ragnarok showed their craftmanship as they geared up and walked the stage as one of the character classes and even monsters from the Ragnarok franchise. From Priests and Assassins to Orcs and Mummies, fans were delighted to see the icons of Ragnarok in real-life.
Gracenote and 6Cyclemind graced everyone with their superb and energetic performances. We can consider it a mini-concert for these two popular bands as they performed, in our count, 7 or even 8 songs each!
