Digital Media Exchange has just launched Hero Online, the latest addition to its lineup on its online games portal mobiusgames. Hero Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Netgame that is based on a story written by three generations of Chinese novelists.
“As Hero Online has been available since 2006 in other countries outside of Southeast Asia, this will help in developing a strong community with new players who will be learning Hero Online at the same time,” the announcement story from Digital Media Exchange said.
Hero Online boasts five character classes that each have their own special skills and abilities:
The Master of Gunn – Gon, The Ruthless Blade. A contract killer, he is proficient in both long and short-ranged weapons such as the bow and sword. He excels in luring distant enemies close to kill them quickly. His combat abilities are average, but he can develop into a prominent force by hunting or taming animals or mining minerals.
Holy Oracle, The Elegant Mystic. Proficient with the Spear, Rod and Claws, she is excellent in close combat. She has the ability to learn medicine either to cure herself or others, or to attack using poison skills.
The Empress of Bo-Ta, The Piercing Eyes. The legendary sword artist of Bo-Ta Mountains, she mainly uses sword and has the ability to cloak herself. She can develop into a character that uses cloaked attacks or one that detects enemies that are cloaked.
Lord of Strengh, The Overseer of the Sky. He remains neutral in the ultimate war between Zuang and Shaopa. His life revolves only around martial arts. Swings only the Spear, Rod and Axe, he is the most powerful when it comes to combat abilities. Once developed, he can increase individual and group combat ratings.

She has the ability to fight with instruments by loading the sound waves with energy to attack. Also, she is fluent with using dual swords. Her appearance is to reinforce and encourage defending heroes to withstand the impending doom.
Hero Online has one special feature that might pique the interest of die-hard fanatics of other MMORPGs: The Bounty System. Under this system, players are allowed to offer bounties for anyone willing and capable of taking down a targeted player.
