With an extensive range of features Runes of Magic prepares to redefine the standard of free-to-play MMO games. Even at the beginning Runes of Magic conveys its absorbing story in over 5,000 quests embedded in an atmospheric world.

The planned online role-playing game of the next generation is aimed to set new standards in design, technology, features and sheer dimension. At the moment, the new title is in the middle of its conceptual phase. Developer and publisher schedule the launch of the new online game world for the end of 2013. Details of the joint project will be published by the partners at a later date.

 After the big success of Runes of Magic, Runewaker has by now increased their team to over 100 staff. An extra 100 members of staff are to attend to the development of the new MMORPG project. Just as with Runes of Magic, developer and publisher are again planning a close collaboration regarding the production of the new online game world. Parallel to the development of the new MMORPG project, Runewaker will continue to work on regular expansions for Runes of Magic which has been able to win large recognition with over 1.6 million registered and over 300,000 active users already a few months after its official launch as well as with downright positive feedback from the press.

 “Because of the very positive and successful collaboration in publishing, producing and game design for Runes of Magic, we have agreed upon an intensified cooperation for our new MMORPG project with Frogster already in this early stage. We can’t really reveal much about our new online role-playing world now, but it will surpass current game worlds in many aspects”, commented John and Tony Tang of Runewaker Entertainment on the signing of the contract.
