History[edit]

OGPlanet was first established in 2004 with the goal of bringing MMO games from around the world to North American and global audiences.[5] The company first established itself with the magical golf game Albatross18: Realms of Pangya in 2005. Albatross18 was well received by players. With the success of Albatross18, and its second season in 2006, OGPlanet began to expand with other titles. In 2007, the company launched the popular MMO fighting game Rumble Fighter, as well as Season 3 of Albatross18 and BB Tanks. The first MMORPG title for OGPlanet, CABAL Online, launched early in 2008 to both player and critical acclaim, followed by the whimsical two-dimensional MMORPG, La Tale. In the summer of 2009, Rumble Fighter Europe was released. Shortly after, the online fighting game, Lost Saga launched with its closed beta in mid-October and final release in November. It was showcased at the World Cyber Games 2010 in Los Angeles, California.[6] OGPlanet then launched Zone 4, another MMO fighting game but with more of an arcade brawler/beat’em up feel. On October 19, 2011, SD Gundam Capsule Fighter Online joined OGPlanet's game roster, through an agreement with Bandai Korea.[7] As of July 15, 2016, OGPlanet has decided to continue its partnership with RedDuck by introducing Alliance of Valiant Arms.
