dragon nest

Nexon will no longer be publishing Dragon Nest in North America, come September 27. The company announced plans a while back to transfer all services back to developer Eyedentity Games — as well as details on what players will need to do in order to survive the change.

According to a FAQ published with the original announcement, Nexon has decided to stop publishing the free-to-play game because the community has continued to shrink despite their best efforts. As a result, the game will no longer be available on Steam and players may be in for a few hiccups during the transfer, such as losing guild and auction house data.

Players interested in continuing to play the game after the switch will need to accept an in-game agreement prior to the transfer date. They should also be aware that as Dragon Nest will no longer be available on the Nexon Launcher, any and all NX remaining on the account will no longer be usable in the game. It will however be usable in other Nexon published offerings.

Those wishing to use their NX in Dragon Nest will need to do so before the transfer. All items purchased will transfer to the Eyedentity Games account so long as you have accepted the agreement to transfer your account.

A full FAQ on the transfer process is available on the Nexon site.

    Nexon and Aeria would make best buddies ever.
    Perhaps they should make a deal or two and share their whale-hunting grounds with each other.

      What a beautiful partnership that would be, don’t you agree guys? ^^)

      good point, nexon got owned by overwatch, did you guys see sudden attack 2? that sexism.. nexon got worse ever since they moved to japan, people expected a fps with a good gameplay but it was the same generic garbage with a pathetic trailer and a game where you stare at girl character’s corpse because they spent 36 million dollars to maximize their sex appeal lmao.

    Lol, seriously? They did this bullshit to DFO. Hopefully Neople or some one will buy DN from them and republish it.

      Thank God neople stepped up and started hosting dfo global.

      • Merkadis on August 24, 2016

        And they do way better job at it than nexon ever did.

    They rather shut down the game than to open the gates to anyone outside of North America, GG Nexon.

      I agree, nexon is getting worse as years go by.. their only strategy is using sex appeal to make money but it’s not going too well for them.

    • ASD on August 23, 2016

      I agree with some of your post but I disagree about all the games being shit. I think some of their games actually are decent and great. And no I’m not talking about maple story or riders of icarus since they both are awful

      • cacalips on August 23, 2016

        Well that does not leave much except Vindictus and their P2W FPS games XD Try harder?

      • ASD on August 23, 2016

        Personally the only 2-3 nexon games I play first assault and mabinogi and I guess riders of icarus. But the other nexon games I ignore cuz they don’t appeal to me.

    It’s been going for a long time, and the diminishing playerbase has little to do with Nexon’s cash shop choices. Other better and more polished games are releasing, so this a given.

    • ASD on August 23, 2016

      I guess but I really like First assault and mabinogi but 2 bad mabinogi is an old game. So I doubt I’ll support it I’m mostly supporting the new generation MMOs that are being built on the new software for now until I see a fantasy MMO I like but I’m just bouncing from MMO to MMO since the gaming industry is changing.

      • ASD on August 23, 2016

        Also I doubt I’ll probably stop bouncing from MMO to MMO till I find one I really like.

  8. ASD on August 22, 2016

    Not suprised. I mean nexon publishes decent games but the problem is they do all these cash shops in their games it’s disgusting like AARON said.

  9. Aaron on August 22, 2016

    Seriously they were asking for it. Cash shop costumes gave some insane amount of stats it was disgusting.
