GungHo Online Entertainment have announced that their RPG Ragnarok Odyssey ACE will be coming to Europe on the Playstation Vita and PS3. Based on the universe of Ragnarok Online, the game is an update of the original Ragnarok Odyssey released earlier this year. It will be released on Playstation 3 for the first time, bringing cross-platform gameplay with both Vita and PS3 gamers being able to link up online.
The game deals in Norse mythology (the name Ragnarok is a future event, where several named gods such as Odin will die out and the world will be reborn, better known as the ‘Twilight of the Gods’) and is centered around co-operative gameplay, making the most of the new cross-platform functionality. The game uses a unique levelling system based around cards and improving gear, rather than gathering experience.
The ACE edition of the game adds new content with new enemies, weapons and a set of randomly changing dungeons, to add to the longevity and challenge of the game. There is also an added epilogue which will extend the game’s storyline. The updated version keeps the original’s open world progression, as well as other features from Odyssey, such as intricate character customisation across six classes, including Rogues, Warriors and Mages.
Ragnarok Odyssey ACE does not have a definite release date yet but is expected to be released in Europe this Winter. Check out some more of the released screenshots below and stay with Game Muse for any updates on the game.
