Since it was announced a few year back, much attention has been on Ragnarok Mobile, an upcoming mobile game developed by Chinese studio Xindong and officially licensed from IP owner Gravity. At a live music event, it was announced the Public Test will being on 19th January, with Open Beta starting on 7th March 2017. Of course, Ragnarok Mobile will be launching just in China first.
Developer Xindong has mentioned it is still in discussions with Gravity about opening the game to more regions, but there has yet to be an update since September. Surprisingly, the only currency in Ragnarok Mobile will be Zeny, which can be obtained from the game monsters and quests. Xindong confidently promised that there will be no premium currency in the mobile game.
In terms of automated functions, Xindong mentioned the game system will guide players, and will apparently not feature an auto-questing system (though auto-combat is still available). The monster cards will remain as loot drops from monsters, and there will be no gacha system for players to spend money on. Are you impressed yet? I can’t wait to play the launch version!
