ABOUT RF ONLINE
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.
