Luxembourg – 2 nd April 2014: Nexon Europe is pleased to announce that the fantastic online turn-based world of Atlantica will be available in English.

Belissa, the Tribal Huntress, is a new main character that will be available to all users, whether old or new. Featuring a high ATT and Accuracy levels when using her trusty bow and with the ability to hit three enemies in one attack, Belissa will start from level 30. She will provide a brand new experience for both players new to Atlantica and those that are already playing and feel like a fresh challenge.

A new continent will also be available to explore: South America. Mixing the civilizations of the Maya, Inca and Amazon, South America will provide a stunning new backdrop to battle in, featuring new dungeons for players at Level 30-60 such as Chichen Itza, Machu Picchu and El Dorado.

In addition, the update will include the first ever Rank S Mercenary "Quilla", who will be available with the new Raid Dungeon "Golden Empire Defence" for high-level users.

 “The German- and French-based servers have seen enormous success and we look forward to echoing that throughout the rest of Europe”, says Marc Mehlitz, Product Manager, Nexon Europe. “Part of the joy of making games like Atlantica is bringing so many enthusiastic gamers together into one imaginative space. We’re thrilled that we can do that across Europe with the launch of the English service, while also providing a massive content update that will benefit existing players as well as new ones.”

About Atlantica

Atlantica is a turn-based MMORPG and an epic story about the civilization of Atlantis and the magical ore Oriharukon. This artificial alloy, already mentioned by Plato in his report about Atlantis, is imprisoning the semi-fictional world of Atlantica and resurrecting the dark myths, monsters and legends from the past. Based on this story, all of Atlantis contains real-world historical events and characters that are mixed with unique situations, offering exclusive experiences to the player. Last but not least, the fresh turn-based fighting system provides an innovative experience that combines strategic planning with exciting action.
