Ragnarok MALAYA Map

I heard about this new expansion the world of Ragnarok a couple of months ago. I'm always excited and happy to find out whenever I hear that creatures from Philippine myth are being used in stories, shows, games that are made by foreign companies; like the time a suspect in CSI was said to be an aswang and those episodes when Blade came over to the Philippines and fought a giant manananggal.

So, it's great to see how players here and around the world will learn more about our myth and folklore. Check out the Malaya map of Ragnarok, that's filled with tikbalang, mananaggal, bangungot and a bakunawa.

There is a place of legend, where the spirits of nature mingle with the stuff of fairy tales. The people of Port Malaya have lived in peace for a long time, but a dark force is slowly creeping in, corrupting everything and turning once harmless spirits into fearful monsters!

The citizens of Port Malaya need courageous new heroes to combat this threat and rid their once-peaceful land of evil once and for all. Will you answer the call?

Get ready to go on an adventure closer to home as Philippine Ragnarok Online prepares to launch its most anticipated update, Episode 25: Port Malaya! Explore a whole new world and battle monsters based on our own Philippine folklore and legend!
