A few years back, I played Atlantica Online for a couple of months. I was always wondering, where the heck is the continent of Atlantis, with the mindset that the game’s name was derived from there. Of course, Atlantis was never in the game during the early days due to the storyline (see below), until developer Ndoors (now part of Nexon) finally revealed the upcoming update, The Rise Of Atlantis, to Korean gaming website GameMeca.
The image below is taken from the English version’s website, talking about the game’s storyline revolving around finding Atlantis. A little new info to add, as a highly developed land of technological wonders, Atlantis and was seemingly governed by a single “higher being”, the AI known as Eve (see poster at the bottom).
Atlantis will feature a new map by itself, which is a separate one from the current world map. Current players will have to access Atlantis via teleport portals.
This new continent will also be a new starting point for new characters, with the civilization’s male (melee) and female (magic ranged) human race available for choosing. As usual, expect tons of new maps both for the low and high levels, new items, new monsters and overall improvement to the whole game. Rise of Atlantis will be updated in 2 parts, with all new content to be playable by this month. The English server can be found here (link).
