Hero Online launches

With various promotions.

MGame's new MMORPG Hero Online emerged from beta this week and is now available to buy.

There's no subscription fee, MGame says, and to help promote it the company's planning a bunch of giveaways and other events within the game world.

For a start, you'll be able to track down "Extravaganza Tickets" hidden with boss monsters, legendary characters and "rogue GMs" who need to be tracked and taken down. These tickets will put you in a draw to win a customised Hero Online PC from iBUYPOWER as well as t-shirts, posters, hats and other memorabilia.

Hero Online open beta begins

Head east to escape the weather.

Those of you turned onto Eastern-flavoured MMORPG Hero Online by our first impressions last week can now take part in an open beta test.

It's happening all month (well, most of it - it ends on July 29th) and you'll be able to carry any characters you create over into the full game, too. MGame USA also tells us that they'll be putting on events throughout the month. In-game, obviously; not like a tombola.

All you need to do to take part is create an account on the Hero Online website and download the client - and you'll need to redownload it even if you've been taking part in the recent closed beta, although you can reuse your existing account.
