Runes of Magic open beta begins

Chance for all to sample freebie MMO.

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.
