RF Online Is Coming Back
POSTED BY Paco Santos ON October 24, 2017
Playpark held the Launchpad press event at High Grounds Cafe earlier today, October 24, 2017. During the event, Playpark revealed that they will be launching RF Online later this year along with content updates for Club Audition and Cabal Online. They also announced an exciting year end bash for gamers – Playpark XP, which is set to take place on December 10, 2017 at Skydome SM City North EDSA.
The highlight of the event was the announcement that they will be relaunching RF Online this November. Playpark will be touring the country in the coming weeks to reintroduce the game.
RF Online, originally named ‘Rising Force’, is an MMORPG. The first version of the game was released in South Korea and was later followed by an English translation. RF Online is set in a distant planet in the Novus system where magic exists alongside high technology. Like most MMORPGs, it follows the fantasy setting complete with traditional weapons and sorcery, but what makes it unique is that it also emphasizes the three-way Race vs. Race vs. Race PVP concept. This concept allows for PVP combat on a massive scale unparalleled by other games in the genre.
RF Online was a fan favorite, revolutionary MMORPG in the Philippine market back in 2007-2008. RF Online was praised for its technical prowess when it originally launched, and was the most graphically impressive MMORPG of its time.
With the upcoming launch, Playpark has teased that it will modernize the gameplay experience and take advantage of modern gaming rigs with streaming capabilities. No further details have been revealed about whether or not the game will feature enhanced graphics and features. Players can expect the closed beta to launch this November, followed by the open beta in December of this year.
In other news, Playpark also unveiled their newest game during the event, War of Heroes. War of Heroes is now available for free download on both Android and iOS app stores. ‘War of Heroes’ is a new mobile strategy simulation game built for casual players of all ages. The game is set in a fantasy medieval world featuring characters from Norse and Roman mythology. Check out the official trailer below:
On December 10, Playpark will host Playpark XP, the biggest Christmas party for gamers at Skydome SM City North EDSA. The year end bash will be open for everyone. Fun games, exciting prizes, cosplay, and more will be in store for those who will attend the party. Expect to experience their full lineup of titles at the event. More details and surprises will be revealed as the big day gets closer, so stay tuned for more.
