Gravity Interactive Launches Rose Online

Dec 1st 2005
INTERGALATIC WAR SET TO BEGIN, GRAVITY INTERACTIVE UNLEASHES ROSE ONLINE

Highly Anticipated MMO Set to Take Flight December 1, 2005

MARINA DEL REY, Calif, Dec. 1, 2005 – Gravity Interactive, developer and distributor of massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), has set the launch date for the company's anticipated new game, ROSE Online, for Dec. 1, 2005. The new title is an interplanetary adventure game that will take players through a journey of mystery and peril.

ROSE Online is the follow-up title to Gravity's hugely successful MMORPG, Ragnarok Online, which has amassed over 25 million users worldwide. ROSE will attempt to become the next monster hit from the group out of Korea.

Geared to the teen and tween player, ROSE Online caters to an audience largely untapped by other persistent world games. The game provides a safe, family-friendly game world for today's youth looking for an atypical MMORPG option.

ROSE will thrust players into a deep storyline and involve them immediately, encouraging building community. Players will have the option to form groups, or guilds, to compete for dominion over the seven planets within the ROSE galaxy. The title will focus on epic battles with catastrophic implications, rather than small-scale confrontations. Instead of losing control of a castle, guilds will have to contend with losing control of their world. Kings will emerge, and kingdoms will be created as players begin to maneuver their way through a social, political and economic labyrinth within the game. The one who can put all seven planets under their control will become the most powerful force in the universe.

“We wanted to create a vibrant forum for our players to interact in a way that is compelling yet non-threatening,” Peter Kang, Executive Director of Gravity Interactive, said. “A game of grand proportions requires a large playground; we chose a solar system.”

Published by Korea-based Gravity Corp., the PC game will launch in North America on December 1 and be available through the game's official website: www.roseonlinegame.com. The monthly subscription will be 12.99 with the free game download.
