The Three Kingdoms Come to Nexon’s RTS MMO Atlantica Online

Deeply rooted in ancient Chinese history, the Three Kingdoms marks the addition of a highly anticipated new high level mercenary, General Guan Yu. Guan Yu’s military expertise is said to be so great that he is worshipped as a god. Drawing upon the power of the Green Dragon, his prowess with a spear and its summoned magic is a work of legend, capable of dealing blow after blow to any enemy that crosses him.

To coincide with the dynastic shifts in power that occurred within the Three Kingdoms period in China, several quests have been included in the game to reflect the power struggles from that timeframe. Players will soon be able to put their strategies to the test in a variety of dungeons and quests, where they will play alongside iconic Chinese historical warlords, leaders, and soldiers like Cao Cao, Liu Bei and more.

The new quests and dungeon added to Atlantica Online will fall primarily under the story of the Battle of Red Cliffs, a watershed moment in the Three Kingdoms era. A decisive battle signifying the end of the Han Dynasty, the Battle of Red Cliffs emulated a classic theme of the“weak beating the strong,” ultimately laying the foundation for the establishment of the Three Kingdoms, Wu, Wei, and Shu. 

The Expedition Team feature will be another addition to the world of Atlantica Online, and it will let players send a team of mercenaries on various tactical missions while the player journeys through more pressing battles. With more than 30 mercenaries in the game, players will be able to maximize the efficiency of their acquired characters by covering more ground and picking up extra items and experiences along the way. Players will also be able to view their dispatched mercenaries as they engage in battle, giving insight into new combat tactics and strategies.
