Intergalatic War Set To Begin, Gravity
Interactive Unleashes Rose Online
Highly Anticipated MMO Set to Take Flight
December 1, 2005
MARINA DEL REY, Calif, Nov. 16, 2005 – Gravity
Interactive, developer and distributor of massively multiplayer online
role-playing games (MMORPGs), has set the launch date for the company’s
anticipated new game, ROSE Online, for Dec. 1, 2005. The new title is an
interplanetary adventure game that will take players through a journey of
mystery and peril.
ROSE Online is the follow-up title to Gravity’s
hugely successful MMORPG, Ragnarok Online, which has amassed over 25 million
users worldwide. ROSE will attempt to become the next monster hit from the group
out of Korea.
Geared to the teen and tween player, ROSE Online
caters to an audience largely untapped by other persistent world games. The game
provides a safe, family-friendly game world for today’s youth looking for an
atypical MMORPG option.
ROSE will thrust players into a deep storyline
and involve them immediately, encouraging building community. Players will have
the option to form groups, or guilds, to compete for dominion over the seven
planets within the ROSE galaxy. The title will focus on epic battles with
catastrophic implications, rather than small-scale confrontations. Instead of
losing control of a castle, guilds will have to contend with losing control of
Kings will emerge, and kingdoms will be created
as players begin to maneuver their way through a social, political and economic
labyrinth within the game. The one who can put all seven planets under their
control will become the most powerful force in the universe.
"We wanted to create a vibrant forum for our
players to interact in a way that is compelling yet non-threatening," Peter
Kang, Executive Director of Gravity Interactive, said. "A game of grand
proportions requires a large playground; we chose a solar system."
Published by Korea-based Gravity Corp., the PC
game will launch in North America on December 1 and be available through the
game’s official website:
www.roseonlinegame.com . The monthly subscription will be 12.99 with the
free game download.
