Ragnarok Online is the Philippines’ first MMORPG, practically creating the country’s online gaming market. Now on its 8th year, Ragnarok Online has seen 24 expansions (and counting), given birth to many illustrious gaming legends and remains to be the gold standard of online gaming in the Philippines. With over a half a million users every month, it is doubtless that its long and rich history can greatly be attributed to its extremely passionate and loyal fan base, who has long called Prontera, home.
RAGNAROK ONLINE (Korean: 라그나로크 온라인),-
It is often referred to as RO, is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game or MMORPG created by GRAVITY Co., Ltd. based on the manhwa Ragnarok by Lee Myung-jin. It was first released in South Korea on 31 August 2001 for Microsoft Windows and has since been released in many other locales around the world. Much of the game's mythos is based on Norse mythology, but its style and settings have been influenced by a wide variety of international cultures. The game has spawned an animated series, Ragnarok the Animation, and a sequel game, Ragnarok Online 2: The Gate of the World, is in development. Player characters interact in a 3D environment but are represented by 2D character sprites for front, back, side and diagonal facings.
By far the most successful Korean Online Game export in the world, this record-setting medieval MMORPG has over 60 million subscribers worldwide, with millions more joining every year.
