Game publishers hold Ragnarok festival for new, long-time fans of Ragnarok Online

MMORPG is back. It’s the resurgence old gamers are welcoming and new gamers are excited to see more of. It all starts with Ragnarok Festival.

Ragnarok Festival will be the first Ragnarok Online gaming event in years and it promises to be the most memorable yet.

Ragnarok Festival will feature everything Ragnarok Online (RO). There will be awesome cosplay performances, RO-inspired contests and community-centric competitions such as designing your own RO headgear and fan art.

Popular bands such as Imago and Sandwich, both of which have fans who play MMORPG, are performing at the RO festival. The event will also be the venue for the biggest MMORPG announcement yet.

Ragnarok Online’s history

Everyone who’s been playing online games, from 2003 up until today, remembers Ragnarok Online. It’s the first full MMORPG (massively multiplayer online roleplaying games) that Filipinos sank their teeth into. It’s why it’s called the grandfather of Filipino MMORPGs.

The game introduced Filipinos to the world of gaming adventure and competition that created lifelong friendships. It also sparked the internet cafe revolution and opened the door for gaming cosplay in the country. It was so popular that Ragnarok Online was made into an incredibly popular 26-episode anime series. Ragnarok Online is loosely based on a Manhwa (Korean Manga), Ragnarok.

Ragnarok Online is back

According to a popular Taiwanese game web site, Ragnarok Online ranked number 1 as the most popular game in Taiwan and Thailand. Very soon, it’ll be the number 1 game in Indonesia and in the Philippines.

Ragnarok Online has enjoyed a resurgence through its renaissance in Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia. Since it was launched in 2003, close to 10 million people played the game in the Philippines.

Gravity Co. Ltd., the developers of the popular MMORPG will grace the event, together with their regional and local publishers, Electronics Extreme and Elite Global Sourcing Inc., respectively. They will make the most awaited announcement Filipino gamers are waiting for.

Electronics Extreme currently owns the publishing rights to Ragnarok Online in Asia and ELITE is the Philippine Publishing Partner. There will be more major announcements after Ragnarok Festival so stay tuned!
