About ACE Online

ACE Online is a 3D space shooter that combines action and MMORPG elements. Developed by MasangSoft, one of Koreas most renowned game developers, ACE Online puts players in the role of fighter pilots and behind the controls of ships known as Gears. As the player battles in this intergalactic world at war, they will complete missions and engage other players in intense aerial dogfights.

ACE Online injects action and shooting elements into the traditional MMORPG formula. Players have complete control over their gear and must engage enemies directly in combat relying on quick shooting and skillful maneuvering in order to survive. As players progress through the game, they acquire credits which can be used in the games item shop to purchase hundreds of customizable weapons and add-ons for their gear. Players can then fly their gear into immense online space battles as part of ACE Onlines Nation Wars PvP system. These RPG elements add a layer of personal customization and multiplayer strategy to ACE Onlines already action-packed gameplay. Through the blend of these two gameplay genres, ACE Online offers a fully unique and unrivalled MMO experience. For more info, visit: http://ace.subagames.com/landing.aspx
