The game is set in a world where humans and giants are pitted against each other in battle following the death of the world’s ancient gods. Based on Norse Mythology, the world of Ragnarok Odyssey will begin to take form as players advance through the story, with new areas opening up as their journey goes on.
In Ragnarok Odyssey, players will embark on a campaign to take down monsters and giants of massive scale, and characters can chain together massive combo attacks both on the ground and in the air thanks to the game’s extremely versatile combat system. Massive enemies can literally be smacked across the screen, and players can even up their speed and agility at the expense of HP for particularly challenging battles. On top of this, the game promotes cooperative gameplay, supporting up to four players for ad-hoc and online cooperative gameplay.
Characters in Ragnarok Odyssey are fully customizable, and players are given the ability to choose from up to six job classes that can be changed throughout the game for specific quests. As quests are completed, characters can be upgraded to increase their combat effectiveness.
In addition to the standard game, the ‘Mercenary Edition’ will include a soundtrack CD, a ‘Mercenary Guide’ showcasing artwork and winning strategies in Rune Midgard, and a pack of ‘Monster Cards’ containing 10 random trading cards from the over 50 available in-game, at an MSRP of $49.99. The standalone game will have a suggested retail price of $39.99.
- Built upon the beloved world of Ragnarok Online, but accessible to anyone: While drawing inspiration from the popular world of Ragnarok Online, Ragnarok Odyssey was developed by Game Arts, the developer behind the Lunar and Grandia series, with an original story anyone can enjoy.
- ‘Fling, Fly, and Smack’ action battle system: Fling enemies skyward, defy gravity to continue your assault in mid-air, then finish off the combo by smacking them clear across the stage.
