Webzen have announced the soft launch for their upcoming Western discharge of MU: Origin has begun, with two regions getting access to the sport to begin. In case you’ve missed our previous articles and hands-on relating to this game, MU: Origin is the mobile version of Webzen’s PC-based MMORPG called MU, which is actually going to obtain a sequel soon too.
MU: Origin has actually been available in select regions in Asia for a bit now and it has done rather well for itself. For its Western release, MU: Origin has had two closed beta testing phases, each of which went very well apparently since we are getting very close to the entire launch. While there might be a respectable amount of MMORPGs on mobile, there isn’t a lot of that could consider themselves a real MMORPG, by having an open world to explore and multiple features you would find in your personal computer title. This is one of those game that may claim that however.
This is a fantasy-themed MMORPG that contains plenty of dungeon crawling as well as open world exploration. There’s three classes available when you begin: Elf (Archer), Dark Knight, and Dark Wizard. All of these are pretty self-explanatory in regards to what they are. You’ve got a lot of your standard MMORPG features such as an party-based dungeons and solo ones, PvP, weapon/armor crafting and enhancing, ah, guilds, and so on. There is also quite a lot of character customization which may be completed in a number of ways, from skills to gear and wings.
MU: Origin also offers quite a unique leveling system, where every 100 levels your character gains is recognized as their ‘Rebirth’. So that your first 100 levels is really called Rebirth0 Level 87 for example. After you pass the 100 level mark in Rebirth0, you’ll move into ReBirth1. This goes for every 100 your character levels up, with Rebirth9 being the highest.
Right the soft launch for MU: Origin is only obtainable in Canada and Ireland currently. Not sure on whether additional regions is going to be put in the near future, or if Webzen will just fully launch the sport after some from the soft launch time has passed. Either way, we will post an update once we know those details. If you haven’t checked out our hands-on from the closed beta, you could do that while you are awaiting MU: Origin’s full release.
