MU Legend is the sequel prequel to the original and one of the longest-running massively multiplayer online role-playing game, MU Online. MU Legend was previously known by its project name of MU2, yes, one and the same. However, MU Legend‘s storyline is a prequel to MU Online by a few centuries.
MU Legend features fluid and stunning hack ‘n’ slash combat, content that caters to both solo and party play, and a deep and intriguing world that will satisfy new players and fans alike. There are four classes available, the Dark Lord, Whisperer, Blader, and War Mage. Players will engage in the endless battle between the world of MU and Pandemonium. It also offers spectacular visuals that can run on lower-end systems and boasts detailed art design with stunning effects.
