Free-to-play fantasy MMO Runes of Magic has entered open beta testing, opening its gates to all comers.
As you can read in our preview, Runes of Magic is a fairly slick entry in the wild world of free MMOs, with dual classes, player housing, a flexible equipment system, and a style strongly influenced by World of Warcraft.
All of the game's features go live in this open beta phase - including the item shop, where you can buy items for real money. Sounds more like a soft launch to us.
You can register and download the game at the Runes of Magic website.
