LINE Games Corporation announced that its multiplatform Hack & Slash ARPG UNDECEMBER, developed by Needs Games and to be serviced by LINE Games, has begun global pre-registration at Steam and its official website starting today.
UNDECEMBER’s online showcase video can now be viewed on YouTube with English subtitles. The video shares detailed information on the game including major improvements after its UN-Boxing Test held in October as well as its launch schedule.
UNDECEMBER will be launched first in South Korea this coming January 13, and later in overseas markets in early 2022. Global players can now pre-register at the game’s official Steam page and website.
Set in a dark fantasy world of Traum, players will embark on a journey to stop the Evil God Serpens from resurrecting and slashing their ways through fearsome enemy hordes. UNDECEMBER allows players to break free from the traditional RPG class system: players will build and customize their characters in their own playstyles, as they farm and craft a wide variety of gears and thousands of Rune skill combinations.
Alongside its campaign mode (Acts), UNDECEMBER will also offer rich multiplayer contents to dive in, including co-op ‘Chaos Dungeon’, ‘Raid’, ‘Spire of Barrier’ (defense mode), ‘Crusade of Glory’ (PvP), and ‘Guild War’ through a continuous update.
A free-to-play game, UNDECEMBER will launch with a battle pass offering valuable in-game items and will present cosmetic items and convenience features that players can choose to purchase. The game will be available for mobile (iOS, AOS) and PC (Steam), with cross-play and controller support, plus an optimized user interface for each platform.
“UNDECEMBER was crafted with a goal for making a ‘fun’ game, along with feedback from passionate fans,” said Inyoung Koo, Director of UNDECEMBER. “We will strive to deliver a satisfying and memorable experience for all players diving into the world of UNDECEMBER.”
The world of UNDECEMBER
‘Undecember’ is the name of the thirteenth month in a calendar of twelve months. With the birth of the thirteenth God ‘Serpens’, the world of Traum is engulfed in darkness. Players will become ‘Rune Hunters’ to stop the Evil God Serpens from resurrecting, but at the same time face the grim fate that getting rid of Serpens will also bring the demise of the other twelve good gods.

- Pleasure of Control: UNDECEMBER values immersive experience and the excitement of control that players will get from playing. There will be no auto-play in UNDECEMBER.

UN-Boxing Test improvements
