TOKYO – July 28, 2022 – NEXON Co., Ltd. (Nexon) (3659.TO), a global leader in Virtual Worlds, today announced the release of its new MMORPG HIT2 in Korea on August 25th. HIT2 will be the first release as NEXON Games Co., Ltd., (225570. KQ), a subsidiary of Nexon providing best-in-class game development.
 

HIT2 is an official numbering title that connects Nexon's blockbuster HIT IP and is a large mobile and PC-based MMORPG that has been reborn around overwhelming-scale siege and field battles by expanding the game scale while inheriting the original franchise .


While preserving the nostalgia of the original IP, it reproduces the beloved characters in the original, with the highest level of graphic quality, and brings to the MMORPG genre, the same visceral sense of contact that made the original HIT so popular. It is also equipped with siege warfare from the time of server opening to provide a massive combat experience, allowing players to compete with other territories and enjoy large-scale wars in the process of occupying castles under the growing narrative to become kings.


To support the HIT2 launch, Nexon released a new trailer of an epic siege on snowy terrain.
