Across the frozen wasteland that was once North America and Europe, life is what most would consider 'hectic'. Polar shift has decimated life as we know it, and the one people foolish enough to live in these vast tracks of land are the scientists working diligently in the attempt to reverse the scarring changes and the armed factions fighting to control the scientific work. Some do it because they believe the end of the world, Ragnarok, has come, and only those who are the strongest will be chosen to build the world anew.
Ragnarok Arena is a sidescrolling multiplayer shooter developed on the Source Engine, famous for it's use in Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2 and multiple other games. Gameplay is brutal and fast paced, with realism being thrown to the side in exchange for adrenaline-fueled arcade action. Relive the joy of playing in the style of older titles like Mega Man, Contra and metal Slug with friends in eye-popping HD, and with a new control scheme custom-tuned for a keyboard and mouse.
