Seoul, Korea – November 23rd, 2021 - WEBZEN, a global developer and publisher of PC and mobile games, has added a new game mode and new events to its mobile application ‘MU Lite’ for its classic MMORPG MU Online.

MU Lite is a mobile application for a mini-game that works with the PC Online game ‘MU Online’, connecting PC version accounts to mobile devices. MU Lite allows players to continue playing MU with an AI auto-playing support and combat repetition and also get various rewards such as 'Jewel' and 'Ruud', which can be used in the MU Continent.

In addition to these features, MU Lite has just added a new game called ‘Muun Defense’ where users can build their army strategically and level up their heroes and Muun units to destroy the enemy’s tower. The best prizes will be waiting for the top-ranked players of Muun Defense.

Along with this update, plenty of events will be running in MU Lite starting from today until December 14. During the limited event period, Exploration Keys will be given to everyone, every day at 18:00 (UTC), to encourage players to try out the MU Lite application. Also, everyone who clears Stage 4-1 of MU Lite can get a special ‘Gargoyle Muun’, which has a special ability.

The MU Lite Ranking Event will offer users a chance to receive various rewards such as +7 Earring of Glory, +7 Earring of Forefathers, Lapidary Stone, and illuminating Earring Box. The higher the points received in the ranking, the greater the prizes given will be.

Aside from these, there are also limited-time events including 30% EXP boosts, 20% Monster HP Decrease and Mystic Gift Box Event in MU Lite. Special sales for Adventurer Support Package and Goblin Points are also waiting for players with the best deals.

The MU Lite mobile application is now available on Google Play and the App Store. For more information about MU Lite and ongoing events, check out MU Online’s official website at: and join the official Facebook community at:
