Seoul, Korea – September 24th, 2020 - WEBZEN, the global developer and publisher of PC and mobile games, announced today the renewal of the Arena system of its strategic action RPG CONTINENT OF THE NINTH SEAL (C9).

The Normal Battle has the same settings and matches as the previous Arena, and the Ranked Battle is the newly added content in the update.


The Ranked Battles will run on a seasonal basis, where each season has 13 rounds. Once the players win the Ranked Battle round, the Winning Point will be obtained, which will determine the Round Ranking and Division. Rewards such as Goddesss Tears and Reward Points will be given to the players who participate.
