'RF Online' Becomes Free to Play

by Rainier on Oct. 17, 2007 @ 7:20 a.m. PDT

RF Online delivers a supremely rich gaming experience that has already attracted over 1 million players in the Far East since its launch last year.With stunning in-game visuals and jaw-dropping character and environment detail, RF Online is an incredible next generation MMO game.It features a unique blend of magical fantasy mixed with futuristic science-fiction action and sees players engaging in the most epic battles ever seen in a MMO role-playing game.

Celebrating the games re-launch, new players can now also experience the all-new free expansion, Episode II: Pioneers of Novus available for free to all players of the game.

“RF Online is a great game with a strong community and by making the game free-to-play we’re inviting absolutely everyone to come and enjoy this unique Sci-Fantasy online RPG,” commented Kyle Rowley, Community Manager, Codemasters Online.”

“Moving RF Online to free-to-play game marks yet another milestone for Codemasters Online and the wider industry. We have proven with ArchLord that has been downloaded over 1million times the potential success that can be experienced and we are pleased to be in a position to re-launch RF Online using a similar model. We invite players from around the world to download the game for free and join us in Novus,” commented Ed Relf, Director of Marketing, Codemasters Online.”

RF Online will deliver a unique approach to Player versus Player gameplay, utilising one of the most advanced combat systems of any MMO title. Full-scale battles break out daily as thousands of players engage in deadly wars – the reward of victory is high: the winning race gains control of the game world's most valuable mine and its precious resources.

Each race has its own characterisation, with skills and abilities taken from both traditional fantasy and science fiction. Players can join the Bellato Union and take control of their incredible Mech battle units, the like of which has never been seen before in any MMO game.

Alternatively, give your allegiance to the Holy Alliance Cora, a mystical and fantasy-orientated race, or sign up to the mighty Accretia Empire, a futuristic robotic race intent on pillaging resources and spreading devastation across the entire Novus sector with their advanced weapon systems.

Deep in the Novus sector, three factions are at war for control in RF Online, the forthcoming MMORPG from Codemasters Online Gaming and one of the most successful massively multiplayer online games in the Far East today.

The Accretian Empire is a totalitarian regime where goals are for the Empire, a thought that is embraced by its followers. There is no feeling when it comes to the destruction of other races and for good reason - the Accretia are a race of mechanized units with materialistic thinking. The Accretia are proud to be the strongest and most formidable race in the galaxy, with an armory of massive weapons that they created to kill men, women and all living things. Their need to expand to the further reaches of the universe to become even stronger is paramount and a key driving force to their being. This has inevitably led them to the Planet Novus and the arcane civilizations it plays home to.

The Holy Cora Alliance is a spiritual civilization with a firm belief in religion and the magical arts. Though the history of the Cora has been built on religious wars, which has created multiple states and nations, the country is strongly unified through its core religious beliefs. The Cora people, united as the Holy Alliance, now battle for survival using the magical powers drawn from their spiritual beliefs, and traditional weapons blessed by their god, Disem.

The Bellato Union utilizes machines and some magic in their culture. Renowned for their great mechanical minds, intelligence and hand-eye coordination, the Bellato can construct huge armored battle mechs and weapons to use in the war. Though they are physically strong and intelligent, the huge gravitational energies from their home planet have left the Bellato with smaller builds. The Bellato are experienced traders and their financial minds and greed have driven the need to extend out to other planets, to colonize and claim resource. To expand to the rest of the universe, the Bellato have to ensure that the Novus Sector doesn't fall under the supremacy of the Accretia or Cora. This desire to expand and grow will no doubt leave the galaxy engulfed in turmoil and chaos.

The epic race for supremacy has begun...

RF Online is set to launch this month and will be published and operated in the U.S. and Europe by Codemasters Online Gaming.
