YNK Interactive Announces launch of Seal Online
English Version of Long-Running MMORPG Launches in the West
Orange County, CA (November 19, 2007). Today at 5:00pm PDT, servers will open for all registrants to the popular MMORPG (massively multi-player online role-playing game) for the PC, Seal Online. Until now, the game has hosted variants in Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Thailand. But beginning today, English-speaking fans will get to enjoy this free to play game.
The original Seal Online launched in February, 2002 in Korea and has since spawned versions in six other Asian countries. With nearly four million users it has become a mainstay on the charts. Not a typical MMORPG, Seal Online combines the adventure of searching for riches, completing quests, and joining with friends worldwide along with a unique "Fame System" (an increase in reputation based on heroic acts which allows the player to access special items and bonuses) as well as in-game coupling of characters.
Seal Online is free to download and play, with the option of purchasing in-game premium items to broaden the user experience (feature coming soon).
"We are very anxious for today#DY#s launch of the English version of Seal Online," said Jun Lee, CEO of YNK Interactive. "It is the culmination of a lot of teamwork between YNK Interactive and YNK Korea. We are dedicated to making Seal Online the best gaming experience that we can for our devoted community."
YNK Interactive also announced that there will be in-game events, contests, and prizes announced regularly.
