Ever since it launched back in February 2018, Soulworker has been a staple of my own MMO roster. The fluid combat systems, the instanced dungeons, and let’s face it, the anime aesthetic made this way more than just another otaku cash grab. Now, Gameforge has unveiled the game’s biggest update. I had a whirlwind tour and hands-on preview of the latest addition to Lion Game’s MMORPG.
Soulworker officially made it to western shores earlier this week. Originally developed by Lion Games and already a well-established commodity in eastern markets, Gameforge’s anime-inspired MMO surprised us all by going into open beta on Monday. This news comes hot on the heels of En Masse Entertainment’s Closers. So after investing time on kitting out Yuri did I really need a new waifu?
Soulworker is an online action MMORPG created by Lion Games in South Korea and coming to western shores, as a Free to Play PC game, before the end of 2017. It blends a kinetic action combat system, MMORPG elements, and some striking aesthetics into a package that stood out form the crowd when I faced the void at Gamescom 2017.
