Another day, yet another new Korean MMO developer and publisher. DK Online: The Legend of Dragon Knights is the maiden title for studio RPG Factory, once again boasting various veterans from the gaming industry working on the development team. DK Online is focused on open world Player Kill (PK), castle siege and a title and politics system.
The PK system is said to follow that of Lineage’s, which I never played before. There is a chance for an equipment to go bust if a PK is successful, while equipments in DK Online can be upgraded normally with no requirements to wear them. Skill books can only be dropped by killing various mobs.
There are currently 4 classes in the game, being the Warrior, Paladin, Sorceress and Warlock. Interestingly, among the classes, there is the title and politics system as well. For example, some Warriors might gain the title of Earl, some Paladins might gain the title of Bishop and so on. The titles are categorized into S, A, B and C, with the former the highest ranking (Supreme). There are also 4 races revealed, including Human, Lycan, Elf and Grayelf.
All these titles will be bestowed according to a number of requirements, for example the number of kills and contributions made in a siege war, elections etc. Each server will also have a fixed number of 100 Supreme players, meaning the highest title in each class. There will be features like the tax system added into the mix as well.
Just being curious, looking at the game content and artwork, can you guess which Korean MMORPG did one of DK Online’s main development staff worked on before and hence drew inspiration from?
