RUNES OF MAGIC - OPEN BETA CLIENT DVD NOW AVAILABLE

We are currently working with Frogster Interactive to promote Runes of Magic, a PC MMORPG that is currently in open beta and has created a huge interest in the online gaming community by redefining the standard for free-to-play titles, not only for the quality of game but the fact that the game already has more than 300,000 active players since the launch of its open beta in December, with hundreds of thousands more expected as word of the game's features and community spread each day. Already a winner of multiple awards for its content and overall gameplay, Runes of Magic is expected to be a major international hit in 2009 and beyond.

As the client for Runes of Magic is currently over 3.3GB, we have recently created a press only DVD that we can send directly out to you today. As well as including the Runes of Magic client, the DVD will also contains the latest press kit containing screen shots, concept art and videos.

Once you have the client installed and a username set up, we can then addthe in-game currency diamonds to your accounts so you can use the item-shop in game.
