Hello all! We are proud to announce just a wee bit of news concerning the sequel to Ragnarok Online. Gravity US will be servicing the North American territories and perhaps more with an English language RO2 server!

We will have more details to announce soon, but we are looking forward to a 2nd Quarter launch for the title, with a closed and open beta before that.

I remember reading about an RO2 beta server coming up in the first half of this year. Didn't expect an announcement on it so soon though. Very nice to hear.

brothersfree brings up an interesting point. Will RO2 use left over servers from RO1, or will it be supplied with its own? Also curious about how staff will be distributed, split between the two games vs. WP hiring new ones for RO2.

ro2 is another game nothing to do with ro, pretty much like rose, requiem etc. my guess is that will have their own servers/cms etc, i might be wrong tho


also imo WP handles better mmos than most of companys that host NA servers for eastern games

Not particularly interested in RO2. It's just going to be another WoW clone no doubt, and even if it isn't, I can't imagine that it will have the kind of depth and character customization that RO has.

You do realize that a brand-new game won't have the same number of hats as a game that's been out for over a decade? Although I am curious if Gravity will be implementing things like more clothing options in the main release, so that hats won't be the single defining thing that distinguishes people.

The fact that everyone doesnt start out as a novice disappoints me.

I have been playing the OBT on the RO2 SEA its a grate game allot of eliments the first one had with a lil bit of a twist. If ur a fan of the first one u will like this game. Just hop WARPPORTAL is able to keep up with the ammount of playes, Asiasoft is having a hard time with the ammount of players. And I hope we dont fall to far behind like iRO was to kRO.

New WoW clone? No thank you.

This is nothing like WoW, WoW is a crapy gear base game for ppl that dont know how to play MMORPGs thats why that game was so popular. RO2 is almost the same as RO just a few diffrentsis.

Yeah, it's kind of ridiculous saying it'll be a WoW clone considering that not only is it still in beta, but most of us here haven't had a chance to play that beta yet! Geez, let's give it a shot before making judgment.

I've already played the beta. It's basically WoW with RO sprites attached.
