Free MMO Runes of Magic launches

Over half a million were in beta.

German publisher Frogster has officially launched its free-to-play fantasy MMO, Runes of Magic. You can register for an account and download the game at the Runes of Magic website.

The game's been in open beta since December, during which time it's amassed an impressive half a million players.

Although developed in Taiwan, unlike most free MMOs Runes of Magic takes its cues directly from World of Warcraft and the EverQuest games, serving up a traditional high-fantasy world and plenty of questing to get you through the levels.

We think it's one of the more interesting prospects in free-to-play gaming. Check out our early impressions of the closed beta, and watch out for a review very soon.
