The game has since been renamed Ragnarök: Path of Heroes to coincide with the expansion update. A later expansion in 2013 renamed the game again, this time to Ragnarök: War of Gods.[3] The game was renamed yet again in 2017 as Ragnarok Classic MMORPG.[4]

Story[edit | edit source]

1,000 years ago...

After an exhausting 100-year war with the demons, the Normans of Midgard forged a fragile truce with the scourge of the underworld.

40 years ago...

Valkyrie Randgris threatened the Norman world using a powerful item stolen from the underworld, the Cursed Stone. Monica from the celestial land of Valhalla defeated Randgris and was able to seal her away, never to be seen again.

Today...

A mysterious woman has broken the seal, but disappeared in the process. Once again, the dark powers of Randgris and her Cursed Stone are free to terrorize the Norman world once again.

Reception[edit | edit source]

Ragnarök: Valkyrie Uprising initially appealed to Ragnarok Online players looking to play the MMORPG on a mobile device. However, the novelty soon wore off once players realized that the mobile game failed to truly capture the RO experience. The playerbase slowly dwindled and the 6 USA Ragnarök: Valkyrie Uprising servers managed by Gravity Interactive (Poring, Mimir, Asgard, Valhalla, Ran, Alfheim) were eventually condensed into 3 servers on 2015 May 12.[6] As player population continued to decline, the remaining 3 USA servers (Griffon, Ferus, Harpy) were merged into just one about a year later on 2016 October 13.[7]

Around 2016, the USA version of Ragnarök: Valkyrie Uprising became open to the Asia region with its first server (Acidus). Another Asia server (Kasa) was later added.

DOT MMORPG Ragnarok Version 2009[edit | edit source]

On 2018 June 18, GRAVITY began preregistration for DOT MMORPG Ragnarok Version 2009 in Korea. Almost two weeks later, Gravity Interactive began their own preregistration for the game in North America on 2018 June 29 and launched the game four days later on 2018 July 3.[8][9] Despite the different name, this "new" game is actually a re-release of Ragnarök: Valkyrie Uprising.

Final Closures[edit | edit source]

Valkyrie Uprising shut down entirely in Korea on 2015 November 17 after only 3 years of service.[10] On 2018 December 27, both Valkyrie Uprising and the re-released version DOT MMORPG Ragnarok Version 2009 closed their North America servers.[11][12] North America's Valkyrie Uprising managed to crawl along for 5 years, a surprising longevity for a Ragnarok mobile game. Their DOT MMORPG Ragnarok Version 2009 was only in service for a scant 5 months, the shortest of any Ragnarok mobile game to date.

Project S[edit | edit source]

On 2019 February 14, roughly a month after shutting down the original Valkyrie Uprising servers, the official Facebook page announced that a Project S was now in the works.[13] A comment from a staff member seems to imply that Project S is a complete remake of Valkyrie Uprising, changing the art direction from 2D sprite-based to a full 3D rendition.[14] Judging from the concept art and videos released thus far, it would appear that Project S will be recycling models originally composed for Ragnarok Mobile: Eternal Guardians of Love.
