Ragnarok: The Lost Memories Punches Nostalgia As It Launches For PC Players Globally
It blends MMO features from the original Ragnarok Online with a card battle system.
Gravity Interactive is proud to announce that the free-to-play RPG Ragnarok: The Lost Memories will be available today on PC via Steam. Besides being the newest iteration of Ragnarok Online, this version has a card battling system and features idle gameplay that allows players to earn resources, rewards, and experience automatically.
Ragnarok fans will feel at home playing The Lost Memories since the story takes place within Midgard's expansive universe. You'll spend that time helping the swordsman Perr recover his memories while collecting and assembling hero and monster cards into a deck for battle across various challenges. There are unique stats and attributes tied to the cards as they level up through the adversities you face, but while all of that seems compelling, the idle feature may not be everyone's favorite feature.
The fact that players can earn resources, rewards, and experience automatically can eliminate the feeling of accomplishment. There's an auto-battle function, which uses skills as players traverse enemy-filled environments. I'd argue this streamlined system could make the MMO elements they included, like PvP, dungeon running, and challenging guild quests, become arbitrary in the long run. The incentive to press the automatic button will increase as players hit progress walls or get bored of clicking around, and if that is the case, the system might be a design flaw.
Regardless, you can try out Ragnarok: The Lost Memories for free on Steam at 6:00 p.m. Pacific time. The game will also launch with language support for Korean and Thai alongside the already supported English, Portuguese, and Spanish languages.
