Remember RaiderZ, the free-to-play MMORPG that launched in 2012, shut down in 2015, and was said late last year to be coming back? There’s some substance to that talk now — well, OK, it’s really just more talk. But hey, at least there are plans!

Masangsoft posted what it’s calling a “Development Roadmap” on the RaiderZ Facebook page earlier this week. Personally, I’d say that a “roadmap” includes some sort of time frames on when things will be released, making this more of a “feature list,” but maybe that’s just me. Those features are:

  • Advanced combat
  • Open class system
  • Passive skill system
  • Trial instance
  • Item renewal
  • Quest replace
  • Fairness microtransaction
  • Epic saga
  • There’s a description to go along with each topic on the Facebook page, though, as you can probably tell from the above list, the English leaves a little bit to be desired. What you can make out from the iffy translations doesn’t provide too much detail, beyond saying that action combat will be action-y and you’ll need better gear to progress, like in this description of “trial instance”:

    The more difficult level, you should prepare the enough equipment and the combat capability.

    Many descriptions do mention that Masangsoft is changing elements of the old RaiderZ that didn’t work very well, so it’s nice to see that they’re trying to implement new ideas to make a better game. If you’re itching for the revival of RaiderZ, now you’ve got something to go on.

      looks good,

      Except lets hope “Fairness microtransaction” doesn’t mean “because people paid money, so they’re entitled to be P2W”… (this is the same statement everyone uses to defend P2W and Whales)

      Oh boy I can’t wait they are hitting the iron hot seeing there isn’t much mmo’s to compete with them now so they have room to grow.
