Los Angeles, CA– August 20 2008– Nexon America Inc. welcomes users to experience the next level of Mabinogi with the newest chapter in the magnificent free-to-play MMORPG, Generation Three. Players will need to overcome a mighty dragon which has been summoned to destroy the world. This episode offers marriage, new quests and added pet utilities, which will compliment the current wealth of game play options already found in the lands of Mabinogi.

The mainstream story quest delivers answers to open-ended questions as players uncover a secret about Erinn. Players will save the human world by recovering dungeon seals, which prevent the fomor, or monsters of Mabinogi, from escaping another world.

Characters in Mabinogi can enjoy a deeper experience within the game’s massive world with the introduction of the marriage system. Players will have the opportunity to not only obtain a wedding license but also tuxedos, wedding dresses, shoes and even a veil for the bride!

Players also gain additional command over their pets, as Generation 3 gives players the option to create programs to manage how pets interact in different situations throughout the game. Users will also appreciate upgrades to the pet’s controls and battle system.

Other additions to Mabinogi include the removal of a cap on combat skills, increased user interface options and several more items, books and character styles. The upgrade to Generation 3 will serve to keep players enriched in the riveting storyline and distinctive art style found in Mabinogi, which has captured the attention of millions of players worldwide who embrace the fantasy life.

Mabinogi will always be free to play but players interested in augmenting their game experience can get a taste of the premium paid services, Nao Support Service and Extra Storage Service, with a free seven-day trial.
