'Mabinogi' Celebrates Summer With In-Game Events

by Rainier on July 3, 2010 @ 2:07 a.m. PDT

Mabinogi features an action-packed combat system based on strategy and skill. You can make your character stand out with endless head-to-toe customization possibilities and immerse yourself in a fantasy world teeming with opportunity and adventure.

Mabinogi offers a robust, online universe where people can experience all facets of fantasy life from fighting to harvesting. The game’s radiant 3-D graphics are infused with an art style based in Celtic and Welsh mythology, which also gives Mabinogi its name and foundation. Mabinogi provides a new experience with its variety of gameplay, unique combat system, and orderly time element and age component, to provide additional depth to Nexon’s latest free-to-play offering. In addition to traditional MMO features—challenging adventures, exciting group quests and a plethora of fearsome monsters—Mabinogi offers a much fuller “life” for its players. Players can increase experience by taking jobs, such as cooking, shearing sheep or other farming duties. The game’s unique music program allows users to write and share music in MIDI formatted files. Players even have the option of getting married, so don’t be surprised if married life leads to some cooking and dungeon raiding whenever the urge strikes the two of you!

Patriotic players can celebrate America’s birthday in their fantasy life with Mabinogi’s 4th of July Fireworks Event or enjoy staying out of the summer heat with the game’s Ice Capture the Flag Event. After cooling off, players can go hunting for awesome loot in the Premium Treasure Chest Event.

The Independence Day Event begins today and runs to July 6, with Ice Capture the Flag following from July 7-20 and the Premium Treasure Event running from July 21 to August 3. 

Players can purchase fireworks from in-game general shops and read special messages when the fireworks are launched into the sky. Fireworks which fire off over a set height will reward players with a prize containing valuable in-game items.

Once players have enjoyed the light show, they’ll cool off with a new version of Capture the Flag. Players join red and blue teams and attempt to steal the other team’s stash of watermelons. Each player in the game gets a special weapon that allows them to freeze a member of the opposite team in place for five seconds, dropping any watermelons they are carrying. If a member of the same team tags someone on their team who is frozen, that player will become unfrozen.

After playing with fire and ice, players can go searching for loot in the Premium Treasure Chest Event. Treasure boxes will drop from monsters all over Erinn. If players can find keys, they’ll be able to open the treasure chests.
