'Karma Online: Prisoners of the Dead' Now Accepting Closed Beta Sign-ups

Karma Online: Prisoners of the Dead is the newest installment in the Korean online first-person shooter series. 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.

"We plan on a short but fruitful closed beta, and definitely look forward to player feedback," said Joymax CEO, Nam-chul Kim. "It is a rare opportunity for FPS fans to dive into our complex system as they bond over taking out enemies and zombies and hopefully build strong relationships that will turn into clans as we lead into Open Beta and launch!"

The closed beta will run from June 7th to June 21st, so players will have a two full weeks to enjoy blasting both their opposing faction's players as well as hordes of zombies waiting to prey on the weakest member of any team. Players can use this time to experiment with different skill builds and weapons before deciding on a final set for open beta and beyond!

For a limited time, players who register with the Joymax portal and log in to the KARMA beta will receive a weapons bonus for the Closed Beta Testing phase, the much-coveted Golden VT40 Bayonet, a knife that will slice even the most obstinate enemy. Simply register and log in during the beta period to be awarded the bonus content.

Those wanting to jump right into the game can download the client starting today by visiting the Karma Online: POD official website so they can avoid the rush and be ready to play first thing on June 7th.
