Ragnarok Journey is an online browser massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) that enables players to battle against colorful monsters, gain new abilities and participate in quests in a fantasy world. It’s a game everyone can play anytime, anywhere, without the need to download and install a client.

Ragnarok Journey the Casual Game Aimed toward casual gamers, Ragnarok has been re-imagined in an all new convenient AI-assisted adventure style which makes grinding and leveling up easier. Battle monsters throughout the world of Rune Midgard and use characters skills to traverse through new dungeons and zones.

Ragnarok Journey offers a completely unique playing experience. Some of the awesome features include choosing a specialized class—such as Mage or Swordsman at level 10, characters accumulating new abilities by manually adding skill points, and unleash devastating attacks on a menagerie of colorful fantasy monsters, the same model used in the classic Ragnarok Online, and undertaking quests from NPCs and enjoy daily rewards,  just like the great MMORPGs.


The Journey Grand Party 

To celebrate this momentous announcement, Gravity held a Grand Party for fans and gamers at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center in Ayala, Makati City.

None other than Kitamura Yoshinori, President and Chief executive officer of Gravity Co. Ltd. graced the event and welcomed attendees to the Grand Party.  “We are excited to bring you ROJ within the end of the year, this game brings you back to the nostalgic memories of the original Ragnarok on a web browser. Followed by Ragnarok Online, Ragnarok Journey is the first title to be serviced by Gravity Group,” Kitamura said.

Liliana Bae, Business Division / Global Business Group Supervisor  for Gravity Co., who helped
launch Ragnarok in 2003,  was pleasantly surprised that a lot of Filipino gamers still remembered and played Ragnarok Online (RO). Bae has talked with RO players from different walks of life and they all remember the game with fondness and great memories. “Ragnarok Journey will allow them to continue adventuring in the fantastical world of Midgard, fight familiar mobs and monsters, meet new and old friends easily.”

Bae added that Journey complements new and current gaming lifestyles. “Ragnarok Journey is not there to compete with other existing online games. We want to provide a wider choice of games for our players to enjoy. We’re providing our players assistance so they can rest without interrupting the game,” Bae added.
