Runes of Magic: Rise of the Demon Lord
Closed-Beta 3 starts after first two stress tests on November 2nd
On November 2nd Frogster is going to expand the current closed beta for Runes of Magic to 30.000 test players. After two large scale stress tests of the game servers on October 30th and November 1st, the free-to-play fantasy online-roleplaying game hence starts into the closed beta phase 3. The publisher will determine the participants for this new beta phase by random within the round about 100.000 registrations for Runes of Magic to date. Lucky players can also win their invitation for the beta in give away contests that will go online on the big gaming portals soon.
The open beta version of Runes of Magic will be launched in December of 2008 after current planning with the subtitle „Rise of the Demon Lord” as a first chapter. To illustrate that, the Berlin based Frogster have published the final logo with two new wallpapers: http://www.runesofmagic.com/de/content,1,wallpapers.html. The publisher intends to publish free add-ons of the game as new chapters within regular intervals of two to three months after the release. MMO fans can still register on the official website (www.runesofmagic.com) for the closed beta to get the chance having a look at the world of Runes of Magic far before its actual release.
