Korean gaming giant Netmarble held its annual “Netmarble Together with Press” or “NTP” event yesterday in South Korea, and as usual tons of Pay-To-Earn, blockchain, metaverse and whatnot news were mentioned. But we will just focus on the new “real” games announced, this time with RF Project. This title was first teased back in 2020 after Netmarble acquired the IP rights to RF Online. Development is led by Netmarble N2 which previously made A3: Still Alive.
Netmarble will not be changing much to the original features, including the nostalgic elements such as the sci-fi world view, giant robot mounts, wielding gigantic weapons, or the summoning of Animus. In fact, they plan to add new features not found in the original PC MMORPG, introducing new experiences not possible in the past. RVR will largely remain untouched, as players are tasked to create stories for their nations without any interferences.
However, it was mentioned that RF Project will “allow users to freely change their country or class” in order to enrich the game’s “narrative.” There is no launch schedule yet for RF Project, but it is currently in development for PC and mobile as a cross-platform title. Stay tuned for updates!
