About ACE Online
ACE Online is a 3D space shooter that combines action and MMORPG elements. Developed
by MasangSoft, one of Korea’s 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 game’s 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 Online’s “Nation Wars” PvP system. These RPG elements add a layer
of personal customization and multiplayer strategy to ACE Online’s 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:
