Runes of Magic leaves beta in March

Free MMO nets 300,000 players.

German publisher Frogster has announced that Runes of Magic will leave beta and enjoy "commercialisation" - which, in the language of free-to-play online games, means "launch" - in March.

The World of Warcraft-style MMO entered open beta testing last month, since when it has attracted a respectable 300,000 players.

Developed in Taiwan but given a thorough localisation by Frogster, the very slick Runes of Magic looks like the pick of the free-to-play bunch. We'll bring you a review soon, but in the meantime, visit the Runes of Magic gamepage for more.
