The War of Genesis 4 Online is an upcoming 3D fantasy MMORPG that is the first MMO in the War of Genesis series, a highly popular Korean JRPG series often lauded as the Final Fantasy of Korea. The game spans the timelines of the previous games with the use of time travel, where players will go back in time to significant conflicts and events in the game series to change the future. Card collection and party formation is at the core of the gameplay, with over 300 cards to collect and summon into combat as characters, many characters unleashing combo attacks when combined with other specific characters. Parties are made up of five characters, which attack your enemies RPG-style, and can be combined with other player's parties in massive groups of players and NPCs up to 80 characters at once.
