UOL BoaCompra Partners with Game Publisher Nexon America to Deliver Regional Payment Support in Latin America

UOL BoaCompra – Latin America’s cross-border payments pioneer – today has announced their recent partnership with interactive entertainment software publisher Nexon America, Inc. UOL BoaCompra will provide enhanced regional payment methods and local currency support to Latin American players of leading Nexon America titles, including the fan-favorite free-to-play (F2P) fantasy MMORPG, Riders of Icarus.

Riders of Icarus takes the battle to the sky with fantastical mount combat unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, in an unprecedented action-adventure MMORPG experience that lets you ride and fight on the back of the realm’s most dangerous winged beasts — dragons. As a Rider with legendary combat abilities, you will explore a majestic world to tame, collect and train hundreds of different wild beasts as your very own mounts, each with unique special abilities. Master the skills of aerial combat with other battle-ready heroes as you fight your way through an epic experience filled with massive boss battles by both land and air.
