Hero Online: Launch Day Review

Posted Mon, Jul 31, 2006 by LadySirse

What Does Launch Day Bring?

MMORPG.com has taken time today to jump into the launch day fun. They have posted a review of the game that is packed with screenshots and impressions.

Hero Online is a Korean Free to Play game that has been ported over for the US market. Typical of many of its lineage, the client is free and there are no monthly fees to play. Although what you pay for differs between games, each developer’s business model is essentially the same – you pay for what you get. Additional inventory space, special weapons and suits of armor perhaps, additional classes or characters, additional mounts, skills… the list is endless… but we don’t know yet, what will be available.

A game like Hero Online can hardly be compared to paid models such as EverQuestII or World of WarCraft but must be compared to others of the same genre, or judged on its own merit. Gamers entering this game seeking a world, content and game play similar to EverQuestII or World of WarCraft will only have themselves to blame if they are disappointed.

Keep reading to see if they rate Hero Online as a hit or a miss! Let us know what you think of the game in the forums here at Ten Ton Hammer and share your launch day adventures.

Experience Week Canceled

A note has been posted on the official site for Hero Online that their week long experience event has had to be canceled.

We regret to inform you that we have canceled our exp week event due to conflicting problems with our new UI. Our exp event is currently causing a lot of problems with our testing which is causing us to delay the release due to constant problems. So in order to keep the release date May 9th, we have to shut down our experience event.

Firefly CEO Simon Bradbury Talks About Hero Online

FiringSquad.com posted this interview today with Firefly CEO today.

FiringSquad: What can you tell us about the storyline for the game?

Simon Bradbury: Only a little at this stage. Our hard bitten mercenary hero enters the dungeon on what he thinks is a straightforward mission, but it soon proves anything but… It will involve a dungeon under siege, a dungeon that needs the Hero’s help.
