TOKYO – April 16, 2021 – LINE Corporation today announced that LINE POD (“Play-on-Desktop”), a PC gaming platform, has launched two new titles, Flyff and Rappelz, for Southeast Asian countries.
Flyff is a classic MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) that introduced the world to a flying system that enables fast field movements and exciting air battles. Users can enjoy all sorts of special experiences in their gameplay, with a range of classes, specialties, colorful costumes and pets operating in a fairytale-like world. Rappelz is another MMORPG developed by Galalab, which provides a unique taming system for controlling creatures in the game, ensuring fierce combat as players strive to obtain ownership of the dungeons using their strategy and skills.
To celebrate their launching on LINE POD, Flyff and Rappelz have prepared special in-game marketing campaigns to help newcomers get started. Notably, for Rappelz, there is an ongoing LINE POD coin shower campaign to welcome users, so they can buy items on LINE POD more easily. Details about these events can be found on the LINE POD website (https://lin.ee/g4TzFHA/yuze).
Launched in 2020, LINE POD started with a lineup of 10 games, including Free Style, ArcheAge, Hunters’ Arena: Legends, and Combat Arms (a multiplayer game that provides fast-paced, multiplayer shooters, designed for non-stop action in various combat zones). To provide an enhanced PC gaming experience, LINE POD plans to continue adding more exciting games soon.
Additionally, Free Style and ArcheAge are carrying out major updates to provide more exciting content to players on LINE POD. Free Style will bring a brand new experience to players with updated characters.
