Open beta date for Runes of Magic

Free MMO opens gates in 10 days.

German publisher Frogster has announced a date for the open beta test for its free-to-play fantasy MMO for PC, Runes of Magic.

The beta is open to all players and will begin a week on Monday, on 15th December. All you need to do is register at the official Runes of Magic site.

All closed beta testers get an automatic pass to the open beta phase, plus an in-game event to celebrate the end of closed beta.

We had a look at the closed beta ourselves after coming across the game at the Leipzig Games Convention, and thought it stood out from the free-to-play crowd.

Runes of Magic presents itself as an accomplished World of Warcraft-style game with a couple of interesting twists: dual character classes, and the rune system that allows you to mix and match the appearance and stats of your equipment.
