How many launches can one game have? Ace Online first saw life in North America as Space Cowboy Online back in 2006, only to be shut down last year to to licence reshuffling. Now Ace Online lives again, and while just about anyone could have been playing the free-to-play MMO for quite some time now, but as with any F-T-P online game, it isn't truly launched until the Item Mall opens, and open it has. The spaceship combat with strong PVP overtones officially launches today on the Suba Games platform, and to celebrate Suba is offering players a special "Newbie Bundle" in the mall, which includes a Power Leveling Set that increases XP, item drops, and money earned by 30%. The exclusive promotion is only available until next Friday, so if you are so inclined, be so inclined quickly.

"With our new player package we are making it easy for new players to dive right into the game's burgeoning online community."
ACE Online is a 3D space shooter that combines action and MMORPG elements. Developed by MasangSoft, one of Korea's most renowned gaming enterprises, the game puts players in the role of fighter pilots and behind the controls of ships known as "Gears". As players traverse this intergalactic world at war, they will complete missions and engage other players in intense aerial dogfights.
ACE Online injects action and shooting elements into the traditional MMORPG formula. Players have complete control over their gear and must engage enemies directly in combat - relying on quick shooting and skillful manoeuvring in order to survive. As players progress through the game, they acquire credits which can be used in the game's item shop to purchase hundreds of customizable weapons and add-ons for their "gear". Players can then fly their "gear" into immense online space battles as part of ACE Online's "Nation Wars" PvP system. These RPG elements add a layer of personal customisation and multiplayer strategy to ACE Online's already action-packed gameplay. Through the blend of these two gameplay genres, ACE Online offers a fully unique and unrivaled MMO experience.
