Free to play MMOGs are everywhere. There’s no denying the
fact that many players have accepted and regularly play these free to
play games, and the free to play gaming genre is here to stay. One of
the first games to be released in North America that fostered the free
to play gaming experience was Hero
, an MMOG that has earned its chops through years of
live service. Recently, Ten Ton Hammer’s Garrett Fuller
caught up with Hero
’s Seung-Suk Cho to discuss a number of
the upcoming events in Hero
and what gamers should expect from the future of
this game.

Hero Online was one
of the first F2P games on the market

Ten Ton Hammer: For those
who may not know much about the game, can you give us a brief
description of Hero

Cho: Hero
Online is a MMORPG based on Chinese martial arts world, and it went
live on July 2006. Since then Hero
has gained the fame for its stable systems and
different features such as item hierarchy, item enchantment, item
mantling, level design and massive-war features. It’s
currently live in seven different countries.

Ten Ton Hammer: Tell us
about the Hero Online
event you have planned for players?

Cho: They
are going to be able to get a ‘lunar dog’s
ring’ and ‘scroll of order’ from NPCs.
These items will boost all their stats, running speed, and defense
points. This will help event participants leveling up a lot faster.

Ten Ton Hammer: Do you
have any other plans for players over the summer? What about going into
the holiday season?

Cho: We are
raising the  level cap (100) this summer so that our veteran
players will have three more maps, and hundreds of new items and quests
to play with.

Ten Ton Hammer: What type
of new content do you release for Hero Online? Are there regular
updates, patches, or expansion?

Basically, we update content for Hero on weekly basis including content
for faction wars, cash items and so on.

Ten Ton Hammer: Finally,
what is your favorite part about Hero’s upcoming event? What
are you looking forward too?

Cho: We are
looking forward to seeing the results of the Fan Video Clip event. The
prizes for this event are unique items. These are the most worthy items
which the most players have been craving for so badly. Anyone, even low
level players, can participate since the criteria for the event is to
simply have good ideas, story lines, plots, hits and such. Once they
get unique items, the winners becomes millionaires in game.
