Webzen’s acclaimed MU Origin 2 recently launched on iOS and Android, shaking up the MMORPG genre in the process. It’s a huge game with a lot of different systems and modes to learn, so we’ve put together a handy beginner’s guide to give you a head start on the competition.


Selecting your starter class

After booting up the game for the first time, you’ll be presented with a choice of three different starter classes. First off, there’s the nimble, angelic Elf whose long-range attacks and assassination skills can devastate any enemy. The overwhelmingly powerful Dark Knight is a master of swordsmanship, though he still prefers to crush any demons with his immense strength. Then there’s the Dark Wizard, a mage of sorts, whose expert manipulation of the elements makes him a deadly force from afar.

If you just can’t make up your mind, and I don’t blame you, you could try them all out for a bit using any of the 4 character slots.

Having successfully left its closed beta phase, MU Origin 2 is no longer available for pre-registration – because it’s now entered its full release.

Your journey in Mu Origin 2 begins by selecting one of three character classes: Dark Knight, Dark Wizard and Elf. Each one boasts their own diverse gameplay mechanics and upgrade potential, which makes conquering dungeons as part of a team even more meaningful. You engage in combat entirely in real-time, fighting off rival factions and bosses in a bid to prove yourself the best.

Explore an epic fantasy world in MMORPG MU Origin 2, set to launch on May 28th

Webzen have just announced the official launch date for its stunning MMORPG ‘MU Origin 2’ which will arrive for iOS and Android on May 28th. It will be the second spinoff from the classic PC-based MU Online, and it looks to further refine the fantasy action and storytelling that made the series such a hit to begin with.

You’ll start your journey by selecting one of three starter classes. There’s the overwhelmingly powerful Dark Knight; the spell-casting, staff-wielding Dark Wizard; and the cunning Elf. Once that’s out of the way, you can band together with other players to start uncovering the world and its many vast dungeons.

Loot is plentiful and always powerful, though the real-time combat remains skill-based. If you’re feeling especially confident, you could test your mettle in PvP battles against rival players and guilds. And for those who aren’t looking for a fight, there’s the option to instead complete puzzles together.

The game has already found much success following its launch in China, South Korea, and South-East Asia. Given the hugely positive reaction, it makes sense that Webzen plans to continue supporting the game with daily dungeons and field quests.
