Ragnarok Online Begins War Of Emperium
Gravity Interactive has launched a new economic battle event in Ragnarok Online.
War of Emperium, announced last week, opens up the availability to the Hall of the Abyss through dimensional cracks discovered within the Guild Halls. In order to win control, players must purchase Castle Investments, which will be available during a period of time each game day. Players can invest anywhere from 10,000 zeny to 2,000,000 zeny, and each realm will be tallied individually. Those who invest the most control the Halls of Abyss, a solo and group area for players above level 135.
Gravity Interactive also publishes ROSE Online and Dragon Saga.

Can Players Really Afford The War of Emperium?
Marina Del Rey, California -August 8, 2012 – Gravity Interactive, a publisher of exciting massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), announced today the start of a new event for their highly lauded MMORPG, Ragnarok Online. Originally a subscription title, Ragnarok Online has been free to play for two years. Recently Classic Servers returned for Ragnarok Online’s long nine year history which gives it a polish few other free to play games can approach!

Show Me The Money! Eerie, unrecognizable sounds have been heard within the Guild Halls. Thus, Rune-Midgard scientists were dispatched to investigate the curious noises. Their findings rocked the foundation of the world – literally! The discovery of dimensional cracks leading to an alternative dimension deep within the ancient castle was an unexpected boon. Quickly, Cat-Hand agents offered to help maintain the dimensional cracks, which have been established as leading to an area now nicknamed Hall of Abyss.
But Rune-Midgard wasn’t ready to give up their coveted prize so easily! Finally, after heated debate between the Rune-Midgard Kingdom and Cat-Hand agents, it was decided to leave ownership of the Abyss in the hands of the guilds.for a price!
“Players will now compete rigorously to own the Hall of Abyss, even temporarily, but in this war might doesn’t make right,” said Jason Heimdallr Koerperich, Ragnarok Online Producer at Gravity Interactive. “Instead, the War of Emperium will be an economic battle, where the highest bidders will lay claim to the new zone!”
Castle Investments will be available for a short period of time per game date, and total investments will be updated every five hours. Cat-Hand agents will be scattered throughout the castle to collect funds. Players can invest the minimum of 10,000 zeny (the in-game currency of Ragnarok Online) up to a maximum of 2,000,000 zeny. Each realm will have their individual totals tallied separately, so guilds compete among known enemies to hold control of the new coveted territory.
The Halls of Abyss is aimed at players 135 or up, and provides both solo and group content. Players can learn more, see the latest screen shots of Abyss, and much more at the official Ragnarok Online Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/playragnarok and share their experiences and strategies with fellow players!
The delicate seals that protect the world from spilling into complete chaos weaken and break, and only the knowledge and power from the age of myth can save Midgard from certain doom. Can you and your allies push back the threat of total annihilation and protect Midgard from the final Ragnarok? Join now at Play Ragnarok Online!
