Joymax Outline Next Stages in Beta Program for European Gamers with launch on new European Data Centre
Joymax announced today the beta program behind its upcoming World War II game with a zombie twist, Karma Online: Prisoners of the Dead developed by Dragonfly, the creators behind Quake Wars Online and Soldier of Fortune Online. With much fanfare and bullets flying, the pre-open beta has now closed and Joymax are pleased to announce the details behind the next stage with the launch of the open beta program that will run from August 2nd – 16th. The open beta will coincide with the opening of a new European data centre that will allow for lag-free gaming for all European players. To sign-up to become a beta tester, or learn more about the game, players can visit its website.
“We have been astounded by the popularity of the pre-open beta, and would like to say thanks to the thousands of players that have helped build what is already a fantastic European and North American community,” said Joymax CEO, Nam-chul Kim. “With the open beta scheduled to begin in early August with the launch of the European data centre, we are now hard at work pouring through the community’s feedback to shape and expand the next stage of the beta program to make Karma Online an amazing player experience no matter where you live”.
The open beta runs from August 2nd to 16th and will introduce ten new maps including the Holy Ground map (team death-match mode) where opposing teams will need lightning fast reactions as they compete against one another in a church with a series of dark underground claustrophobic tunnels. The open beta will introduce two new characters, Gunther and Karl, and a further 11 new diverse weapons bringing the total weaponry so far to 25, with more to be revealed and launched as the game nears its official launch.
Developed in conjunction with Dragonfly, and published by Joymax, KARMA Online: Prisoners of the Dead is the newest installment in the KARMA Online series, the top online first-person shooter series in Korea. Players go back in time to World War II, where they must choose to side with the Axis or Allied powers and join the fight for global victory – with a zombie twist. In this virtual and historical simulation, players will be up against enemy troops as well as hundreds of the walking dead from the remains of the catastrophic battle. KARMA Online: Prisoners of the Dead will be available in English, German, Spanish and Turkish.
