Arcane Saga, originally known as Prius Online was a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG from CJ Internet and NetMarble. While it relaunched in 2013, it was short lived and was shutdown by NetMarble on September 16th. The game was focused on a 3C System that consisted of players characters, their Anima companions, and their Animas' summoned Gigas mercenaries. Prius Online offered the four races of Hume, Lon, Ayin, and Beriah, as well as the seven classes of Gunslinger, Occultist, Huntress, Berserker, Legionnaire, Shadow Templar, and Minstrel.
Net Marble has announced to its players that Arcane Saga will cease operations on September 16th. According to a notice on the official site, the cost to operate the game was more than the income it generated.
Arcane Saga has officially launched on both Steam and the NetMarble games portal. Players taking advantage of the Steam version will have the option to purchase exclusive special items/bonuses.
