MU Online: The 10 Year Interview

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,643MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

MU Online is a venerable grand old dame of the MMO space. We recently caught up with Producer HyeokIm Jun to talk about MU, where it's been and where it's going. See what we discovered and then leave us your thoughts in the comments.

Global MU Online has been running for 10 years now, and in some countries, still have a significant number of active players, with two million in Korea alone. A fantasy RPG that takes place on the legendary continent of MU, the game has grown in 10 years to incorporate not just the usual hack and slash events, raids and quests, it also boasts large castle siege events. According to Producer HyeokIm Jun, Mu Online in Korea can be compared to Ultima Online or EverQuest in the US. It was the country’s first 3-D MMO, with an isometric top down view. It was the trailblazer in 3-D MMOs and added to that, it is very easy and simple to play and a strong community.

    Muonline was my first mmo around 9 years ago and i believe its one of the best there is. The sound of jewels droping is something i will never forget and i haven´t found another game that makes mobs drops so thrilling. The Blood Castle music soundtrack was epic and i remember fighting there with friends. Was very intense! Doesn´t surprise me that Muonline is still around, and very happy to know it. Keep it going! 

    Oh Golden Dragon Invasion!!! Super!!!

    *Cheers*

    .97+99 ftw :P

    Realistically there are very few modifications made on private servers, this keeps GMO very strong.
