Webzen has confirmed that the highly anticipated MMORPG MU Legend is going to be released in western territories. Richard Moon, Head of Global Business at Webzen, said: “For a Western release, we are currently working on bringing the game to the West. Once a concrete schedule is finalized, we will officially announce the upcoming schedule.”
MU Legend is the follow-up (actually a prequel) to the classic MMORPG MU Online. Running on the Unreal Engine 3 and featuring hack-and-slash combat, PvP modes and an isometric perspective just like its predecessor (or just like the Diablo series from Blizzard, if you prefer), MU Legend is going to enter closed beta in Korea on April 21, 2016 (KST). Korean players will get to choose from four different classes: Dark Lord, Whisperer, Blader, and War Mage. You can watch the introduction videos below as well as a short description for each one.
Among the four playable classes, Dark Lord is a class revamped original class of MU ONLINE. Dark Load, the commander of the Dark, has a good stamina and defensive stat, carrying out both a tank and a damage dealer.
On the other hand, Whisperer is a brand-new class inspired by Fairy Elf, an original class of MU ONLINE. Whisperer is a class that specializes in ranged attacks, freely adjusting the distance and position between player and the enemy at high speed.
War Mage is a wizard-type class, featuring its powerful long-range attacks against the surrounding enemies.
Blader is a classic warrior class with devastating melee attacks, using a close range weapon like a sword.
