The Return of ROSE Online! (Well, It Didn't Actually REALLY Go Away)

Ah, Nostalgia! I reviewed the super-cute entry-level fantasy MMO ROSE Online about five or so years back for another gaming site that's long dead and found it to be very cool and quite a bit of fun at the time. Since then, Gravity has revamped the visuals a bit, retooled the game model from a per month fee to FREE to play and is looking to revive interest in it with a big media push. While my own time for MMO's is pretty much over and done with (way too many other projects cooking here!), don't let that stop you from giving ROSE a shot, particularly if you're not a total slave to the WoW juggernaut.

Game info and a few screens below the jump.


The 7 worlds of ROSE are in danger from the evil will of the dark god Hebarn. The citizens can do nothing to save themselves from the robed saboteurs that are spreading discontent across the peaceful world of Junon. They hope and pray to the patron hero Deity of Junon and his lover Arua, the mother of all worlds, for protection. The gods are careful not to intervene directly in worldly affairs or else the universe could be undone. As hope fades, Arua¹s love grows. Weaving her love into her newest creation, strange visitors with no past and an epic future begin to appear on the planet Junon Polis. The strange visitors are ROSE¹s only hope for preventing catastrophic destruction at the hands of Hebarn and his minions. Will you wake and answer Arua¹s call to save ROSE and begin your epic journey?
