Codemasters today unveils the first official Western glimpse of RF Online in action with the launch of an epic Prologue video for the forthcoming science-fiction fantasy MMORPG.

The video, combining stunning in-game visuals with beautifully rendered sequences, is now available from the RF Online website, also launched today at

RF Online, coming to PC in Q1 2006, has already engaged over 1 million players in the Far East since its launch last year. Now, as the game prepares for its US and UK arrival, the English-language website will be a key destination for the inside-track on the game world.

The website reveals RF Online's setting, Planet Novus, and its three factions. To enter the site, use your gut judgement and make your first declaration of allegiance: will you join the mighty Accretia Empire, the futuristic and destructive robotic faction, the Holy Alliance Cora, the mystical original inhabitants of Novus, or the incredible Bellato Union with their Mech battle units? Dependant on the faction chosen, the website is skinned to reflect your selection.

There's plenty to discover throughout the site, which will be expanded over the coming months, including more detail on the factions and, should your allegiance change, the site will re-skin to suit. For extra insider details, you can also sign up to the RF Online newsletter and get all the latest scoops as this epic game of supremacy heads to the West.

With its unique blend of magical fantasy and futuristic science-fiction action that has players fighting in the most awesome battles ever seen in a MMO role-playing game, RF Online will be published by Codemasters Online Gaming in the US and the UK in Q1 2006.

Begin your journey to Novus and see how it all began in the Prologue video, now available (in Downloads) from the game's website at

RF Online is an epic mix of traditional fantasy MMOG mixed with unique futuristic sci-fi action to bring an entirely new and original take on the existing MMORPG genre. Set in a deep space galaxy known as Novus, take your pick from three all-powerful warring factions leading your character into the final battle for total control over the entire Novus galaxy. Chose from either the Bellato Union, taking control of individual robot battle units like never seen before within any MMOG, Holy Alliance Cora, the mystical and fantasy orientated faction utilising the power of magic and finally the mighty Accretia Empire, a futuristic alien faction intent on spreading destruction across the entire sector with their advanced weaponry systems. RF Online will deliver a unique approach to Player versus Player gameplay, utilising one of the most advanced combat systems of any MMO title. Full-scale battles break out daily as thousands of players engage in deadly wars - the reward of victory is high: the winning faction gains control of the game world's most valuable mine and its precious resources.
