MU Online_14th Anniversary_01

Webzen’s MU Online turns 14 years old and to give players a bit of a peek into the game’s future they held a press conference called “MU: STORY and Next…” where they revealed details and a roadmap for the free to play MMORPG’s upcoming Season XI expansion.

Season XI will introduce a new map ‘Ferea’, including the most powerful boss monster, a new armor set ‘Dark Angle’ and new skills, and this upcoming expansion is currently scheduled for spring 2016 in the West.

MU Online has garnered some impressive numbers of the course of its 14 year history with over 30,000,000 characters being created and a combined total of over 5.4 billion hours (that’s over 620,000 years!) of play-time. To date, the MMORPG has received 10 major updates with a myriad of smaller patches and updates along the way.

    ” 30,000,000 characters being created..”

    But how many are actually active and how many are remnants of people who played 5 mins, saw how awful it was and uninstalled? That, my dear Watson..is the question.

      easy just divide the 30m chars by 5.4 billion hours played
      grant total of 180 hours per char pretty much u can c theres been a ton of quits after 30 seconds gamers but its still a decent number of hours
