Yes, the MMO with the perfect concept – giant robots twatting elves – but the tragically ultra-grindy execution, has had its last respawn. RF Online is now offline in Europe and the US, though its Korean servers (where the game began) are still going great guns. Apparently Western publisher Codemasters couldn’t persuade a license renewal out of Korean devs CCR, so as of 8th November, that’s it. The game’s been free to play for a while now, which we’d presumed was a sign of its susbcriber base being a bit widdly, but Codies are nonetheless calling its three years of operation a success.
RIP RF, then. Anyone played it lately? Did it blossom into something better over the years?
