IRVINE, Calif. - (June 12, 2007) - Mutizens Prepare! K2 Network, Inc. ( www.k2network.net),
an online game publisher, today announced the expansion of Global MU Online with Global MU Online Season 2 coming later this month. With new features, many of which were requested by the Global MU Online Community, Season 2 offers new sets, a new PvP Shield, New Windowed mode support, new maps and more.
In Global MU Online Season 2, players will enjoy new armor sets including the Ashcrow, Eclips, Iris, Valiant, and Glorious sets. New weapons and items in the game carry no level requirement, and therefore will be accessible to all players. New weapons include a new sword for the Blade Knight called Daybreak, a Platina Wing Staff for the Soul Master, a Shining Scepter for the Dark Lord, the Sword Dancer for the Magic Gladiator, and the Albatross Bow for the Muse Elf. New items in the game will include the rare Jewel of Harmony and a useful Complex Potion.
In addition, players will now have access to a new Windowed Mode and PvP shield. Players will now be able to run their game in a window, rather than full screen and can minimize their game and chat via an online messenger program or change tracks on their media players all while staying in the game. The new PvP shield, called the SD Shield, allows classes to engage in combat with one another based on level, rather than on stat point distribution or individual classes' strengths and weaknesses.
"We are constantly communicating with our community to hear what they feel will enhance their experience with Global MU Online," said Ricardo Mendoza, producer of Global MU Online at
K2 Network. "With Season 2 we are able to give them a lot of new features and fixes they have been telling us they want and we think they will be very happy with the results."
New monsters and maps are also an important addition to the expansion. New monsters in the game include Blade Hunter, Kentaurus, Gigantis, Genocider, Persona, Twin Tail, Dreadfear, Nightmare, Maya, Satyros, Iron Rider, Splinter Wolf, and Berserk. The new high-level maps include Kantur Remains Zone I, Kantur Remains II and Kantur Relic.
