YNK Interactive to welcome chosen registrants into the popular MMORPG (massively multiplayer
online role-playing game) for the PC, Seal Online. Until now, the game has hosted
variants in Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Thailand. But beginning
today, English-speaking fans will get to enjoy the game as well as approximately ten thousand

Seal Online will be free to play, with the option of purchasing in-game premium items to

and 26th, as well as from 5:00pm on October 27th to 7:00pm on October 31st.
