Legend of Ares Overview

Legend of Ares is a 3D free-to-play fantasy MMORPG developed by MGame and re-published by RedFox Games, originally available through the NetGame portal before the game's shutdown in 2009. Enter a world torn apart by the war between Ares and Athena, backed by the game's two factions in war for domination over the world. The game offers four playable classes that include Gladiator, Paladin, Archer, and Sorcerer, and the two opposing factions of the Holy Empire and the Religious Alliance. Fight against other players and NPCs in action-oriented combat where players must click their abilities to attack, unlike many modern MMORPGs with automated combat.

  • Four Playable Classes – play as four classes that include Gladiator, Paladin, Archer, and Sorcerer, each with their own equipment types and trainable abilities.
  • Legend of Ares Reborn – relive the nostalgic game shut down in 2009 with new translations and features.
  • Player-Owned Shops – peddle your wares to other players at the prices you choose by opening up a shop, allowing for a player-driven economy.
