KARMA ONLINE: PRISONERS OF THE DEAD LOCKS ONTO CLOSED BETA TEST DATE
With The Launch of The Official Closed Beta Homepage Today, Players Should Prepare To Get Zombie-Proofed For Closed Beta Starting June 7th
Seoul, Korea, May 31, 2011 – Joymax, a leading online game developer and publisher, announced today that Karma Online: Prisoners of the Dead will open fire June 7thwhen its closed beta begins. Those wanting to jump right into the game can download the client starting today by visiting the Karma Online: POD official website at http://www.joymax.com/karma/ so they can avoid the rush and be ready to play first thing on June 7th.
“We plan on a short but fruitful closed beta, and definitely look forward to player feedback,” said Joymax CEO, Nam-chul Kim. “It is a rare opportunity for FPS fans to dive into our complex system as they bond over taking out enemies and zombies and hopefully build strong relationships that will turn into clans as we lead into Open Beta and launch!”
The closed beta will run from June 7th to June 21st, so players will have a two full weeks to enjoy blasting both their opposing faction’s players as well as hordes of zombies waiting to prey on the weakest member of any team. Players can use this time to experiment with different skill builds and weapons before deciding on a final set for open beta and beyond!
For a limited time, players who register with the Joymax portal at http://www.joymax.com/portal/ and log in to the KARMA beta will receive a weapons bonus for the Closed Beta Testing phase, the much-coveted Golden VT40 Bayonet, a knife that will slice even the most obstinate enemy. Simply register and log in during the beta period to be awarded the bonus content.
Developed in conjunction with Dragonfly, and published by Joymax, KARMA
