Originally I was quite confused with the announcement of Moonlight Online: Global. Here it was a vampire/werewolf influenced MMORPG, yet I had never heard of it. What's more, after doing a little digging I find this MMORPG was actually originally launched in 2012 after taking quite a long time to develop. So why the reboot? The news I found on the website didn't offer much insight, but after perusing a few sites I gathered the game's original aesthetics where geared towards fans of the Twilight series of Edward and Jacob fame. It appears as though that style didnt quite work out for the developers over at IGG.
Thus, the developers decided to close down the MMO and focus on altering its art style to better match the more traditional vampire and werewolf designs. You know the original one with sharp teeth and large claws.
They actually sum up the change in style quite nicely:
Best of all, we’ve done away with all the mushiness and shininess of any tween pop movies.
Players can play as boring humans, but why would you when you can be the infinitely better werewolves and vampires? There aren't many MMORPGs these days that deviate from the standard Fantasy or Sci-fi theme so it's nice to see an MMO in a new setting. I couldn't find any indications as to whether the actual gameplay has changed, but you only need to wait till March 20th and download the game here to find out for yourself.
