'Blade & Soul Revolution', based on the IP of 'Blade & Soul', is a reinterpretation of the sensibility of original works such as cinematic directing and story, gorgeous graphic, martial arts, and actions reminiscent of a war game. It provides differentiated fun such as large-scale open-field competition and community. In 'G-Star 2018', new contents including character customization, PvP system, power conflicts, and strategic elements of the war were revealed.
'Seven Knights 2', which is a mobile MMORPG based on IP of 'Seven Knights', features gameplay that collects various heroes and performs group battles unlike traditional MMORPGs, which focus on one hero. The demonstration version in 'G-Star 2018' showed the world of ‘Seven Knights 2’, which was born as a mobile MMORPG, and introduced the third story, 'Melissa's whereabouts' at the same time so that visitors could experience 4-player boss raid that attacks a giant boss ‘Giganteus’.
