As G-Star 2023 in South Korea continues, a new announcement has captivated MMORPG enthusiasts worldwide: the unveiling of RF Online Next. This latest installment from Netmarble and Netmarble N2 promises to redefine the genre.
Set in a sprawling science-fiction universe, this game invites players to don biosuits and engage in high-adrenaline, skill-based battles, a stark contrast to the fantasy-dominated scene.
The core of RF Online Next revolves around its unique combat system. Players can choose from six distinct biosuits, each boasting specialized capabilities. The game ups the ante with a feature that allows players to summon and pilot colossal robots, adding a new dimension to the MMO combat experience. Furthermore, a free-flight system enables dynamic movements and strategic advantages, enriching the overall gameplay.
At G-Star 2023, attendees got a firsthand look at “RF Online Next” through its Story and Event Modes. The Story Mode offers a narrative deeply rooted in the RF universe, enriched with cinematic cutscenes. In contrast, the Event Mode challenges players to clear stages swiftly, using the roguelike system to make strategic decisions in real-time.
“RF Online Next” stands at the crossroads of nostalgia and innovation. While it retains the essence of its predecessor, the game introduces new elements that might polarize the original fan base. This blend of old and new is a daring move in the ever-evolving MMO genre.
The game will be released in 2024 on PC, iOS, and Android. You can watch the game trailer below:
