Ragnarok Arena is a sidescrolling multiplayer shooter developed on the Source Engine. Gameplay is brutal and fast paced, with realism being thrown to the side in exchange for adrenaline-fueled arcade action. Relive the joy of playing in the style of older titles like Mega Man, Contra and Metal Slug with friends in eye-popping HD, and with a new control scheme custom-tuned for a keyboard and mouse.

Bring in the summer with Multiplayer Sidescrolling Action.

Posted by VulpineComplex on Jun 16th, 2010

Ah, release dates. Better yet, projected release dates, and their ability to make you taste the fine leather of your own shoes. So it's not the new year - in fact, it's about six months after the fact. But hey, who cares? It's ready for release! It, of course being, Ragnarok Arena.

May 31st Update May 31st Update

What will the new version bring you?

  • Seven completely reworked maps, rebuilt with the new camera and gameplay in mind
  • Teamplay! Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag!
  • Completely rebalanced weapons, and Powerups! Invincibility, speed, and more!
  • You asked for them, we finally delivered. Reworked controls. Wave goodbye to the clunky movement controls of old, and introduce yourself to the ability to shoot and move in different directions.
  • Ingame music, a new UI, and more!

And what's a release announcement without some form of moving picture? Here, indulge your ocular nerves.

And a shout-out to any server owners/providers looking for something new to run: In preperation of the release, the Ragnarok Arena developers would like to get a handful of servers going. If you're interested, please give me a shout at ackart@ragnarokarena.com

See you on Friday!
