Ragnarok Online comes to Steam as F2P game

Gravity Interactive's long-running MMORPG Ragnarok Online is now available via Steam as a free download supported by in-game microtransactions.

Released in North America in 2003, Ragnarok Online pairs 3D backgrounds with 2D character sprites for a distinct fantasy-themed adventure that preceded World of Warcraft and other genre standouts. Gameplay is defined by its wide array of skill and class customization options, and players can either team up to take on the game's many quests or compete in several available PVP modes.

Ragnarok Online has introduced new content weekly since its inception, and new quests and events are added each month.
