Ragnarok Online To Reconnect With Its Roots Through “Classic” Server

Recommended Videos

Ragnarok Online has been been one of the more successful long-running MMORPGs, having operated for 10 years so far, since its original release in 2002. Throughout the years, the game has also seen major updates in the form of changes to its game systems, world and story. The most major of these was titled “Renewal”.


Released in 2010, the Renewal update added third job-classes to each job category and made stat, skill, experience, and monster placement changes across the entire game. While the changes made by the Renewal update are still in effect today, Gravity Interactive are now also giving players the option to play the original Ragnarok Online through official means once more.


This is being done through a new Classic server that will run completely separately and use all the original game settings and physics. The server will launch tomorrow, on June 29th, and you can keep abreast of the status of the Classic server through this page.


“The Ragnarok community has been asking for years to give them an option to play the game the way we all remember it, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to grant that opportunity,” said Jason Heimdallr Koerperich, Ragnarok Online Producer at Gravity Interactive. “Players can now dive into the classic Ragnarok Online experience they originally fell in love with so many years ago.”
