More than 5 Million Players Pre-register for Solo Leveling: ARISE

A strong showing by the fans. Netmarble

It looks like a lot of fans are excited to be part of Sung Jinwoo's adventure. That's because according to Netmarble, more than 5 million players have pre-registered for the upcoming title Solo Leveling: ARISE. Then again it's not surprising considering that this is the first video game adaptation of the webtoon.

It was actually last week when the studio started accepting pre-registrations. It was open for the PC through the Netmarble Launcher along with mobile platforms through Google Play and the App Store. Those who pre-register get to earn rewards that include:

  • Legendary Artifact Sets
  • Chic Black Suit Costume for Sung Jinwoo
  • two Mana Power Crystals for each attribute (for a total of 10)
  • 100,000 Gold

That's not all since those who pre-register can also get Yoo Jinho as an additional reward.

Solo Leveling is a webtoon series which has accumulated more than 14.2 billion views globally. It's set in a world where humanity faces the threats posed by dimension gates. Mankind is protected by talented "hunters" who enter dungeons and fight against deadly hordes of monsters.

The story follows a weak E-Rank hunter named Sung Jinwoo. He initially enters what appears to be a low-level D-Rank gate which turns out to have a very difficult "Double Dungeon" hidden inside. Jinwoo narrowly survives and awakens from the experience with new rare abilities. He discovers that he can now "level up" by defeating monsters and completing quests. With this "system," he is able to rise to the top. For someone who was once called "The Weakest Hunter of All Mankind," he has become a powerhouse with the ability to turn the dead into his "Shadow Soldiers.

The game reproduces the original webtoon series in a faithful manner through immersive storytelling, action RPG mechanics, dynamic combat, and fast-paced gameplay.

Like the webtoon, players can extract the shadows of enemies that they've defeated and have them fight on their side. With this, they can form their very own Army of Shadows. But remember, to defeat the magic beasts in each dungeon, you need to come up with unique strategies.
