‘WEBZEN.com 2.0’, the Next Generation of User-Oriented Service
WEBZEN Inc., (www.webzen.com), the Next Generation of Free-to-Play Online Games, has recently renovated their global portal website according to their slogan where they will become a user focused portal by providing new and improved customer service.
Last January 26, 2012, WEBZEN.com started the service of their renovated portal site that underwent many changes. These changes include a more comprehensive language option and streamline connected function allowing users to login to WEBZEN.com using their Facebook account.
Also, the new user-oriented interface design makes the website much more innovated and efficient than the previous version allowing users to easily access its contents. WEBZEN.com plans to add more convenient features and various contents that will be optimized for their games and forums allowing users to interact with each other more efficiently.
Currently, WEBZEN.com is servicing MU Online, Soul of the Ultimate Nation, and Archlord, while its anticipated title, which has been awarded the grand prize at the 2009 Korea Game Awards, C9 (Continent of the Ninth Seal), is preparing for their first global user test that starts on February 4th. Additionally, WEBZEN’s new FPS title, Arctic Combat, is planning their first user test in the first half of this year.
Jihun Lee, Head of Global Publishing, said, “At the very beginning of this project, called WEBZEN.com 2.0, renovations were considered to enhance the existing features including the upgraded language options”. Also he said, “Through this large renovation for both previous and new features, a more complete and stable global publishing system has been established. We will continuously upgrade and expand the functions of the global portal by listening to user feedbacks and suggestions.”
Meanwhile, Archlord, one of the publishing titles by WEBZEN.com, is planning to release a new content patch in February which will include new epic set armors that will become the strongest existing items. These items will exclusively appear in the enhanced version of the Elemental World which was popular in episode 2. Another major update that includes new dungeons is planned for release this summer. Additionally the 2nd CBT for Archlord X is planned to kick off this March.
