Webzens spinoff of MU Online has undergone a name adjustment with the now former MU Chronicle R rebranded as MU Rebirth. The new online fantasy RPG is based on the classic gaming style of MU Online and shares several features with its predecessor but with a much stronger focus on PvP. According to the press release, a few things that players can expect from MU Rebirth are a much faster leveling system, allowing players to reach the level cap of 400 within 1-2 hours. Once you blaze through that level wall that sounds bigger than it really is you can make use of the new Rebirth system, which will allow players to reset their max level characters to level 1 and keep all of the stats to run through the process again for yet more stats.
Closed beta for MU Rebirth is scheduled to start on July 3rd, 2013. Launch details will be revealed at that time along with plans for a cash prize PvP tournament. Additionally, you can visit the MU Rebirth Facebook page for a chance to win some nifty new prizes that include an Alienware Gaming Laptop, W Coins or gPotato currency and a Grand Prize to be revealed later.
Visit the MU Rebirth website to sign up for the beta and learn more.
