Seoul, Korea - May 21st, 2019 - WEBZEN, a global developer and publisher of PC and Mobile games, announced today that its full-3D MMORPG MU Online’s 10th Anniversary Celebration Event is now live in-game.

10 years ago today, WEBZEN published and began servicing MU Online’s global version, boasting 56 million registered users to date, on May 21, 2009.

Players will be ranked by the maximum level of the evolved Evomon and the total damage to the Evomon. When listed in the top rank, they will receive special rewards - Legendary Dark Wizard Muun, Soul Mastery Set, and Ruud.

During the event period, players can also purchase 1,000 Goblin Points at a very low price, which they can use to purchase Gift Boxes in the in-game shop. Upon opening the boxes, users will randomly receive various rewards such as 4th Wings, Earring of Wrath, Holyangel Mastery Weapon, Garuda’s Feather, Bloodangel Soul, Scrolls, Rings, or Lucky Item Tickets.
