Pre-Open Beta Kicks Off With A Bang And A Pow

Seoul, Korea, July 6th, 2011 - Joymax, a leading online game developer and publisher, announced today that its upcoming World War II game, Karma Online: Prisoners of the Dead, has launched its pre-open beta test with much fanfare and bullets flying, which will run through Tuesday, July 19.  To participate in the testing, or learn more about the game, players can visit http://www.joymax.com/karma

"The sheer volume of players who signed up for this pre-open beta was flattering, but we were glad to be prepared for so much excitement and interest," said Joymax CEO, Nam-chul Kim. "We have GMs in game regularly to take feedback, play games with our lucky testers, and they've reported how much fun everyone is having!"

The pre-open beta runs now through July 19th, so players will have the next couple of weeks to familiarize themselves with the game, learn how to build a character from the ground up and customize them with a variety of skills, use many of the diverse weapons available in the game while blasting their opposing faction's players and zombies. All of this time will just help them gain experience for when the game officially launches later this summer!

Developed in conjunction with Dragonfly, and published by Joymax, KARMA

Online: Prisoners of the Dead is the newest installment in the KARMA Online series, the top online first-person shooter series in Korea.

Players go back in time to World War II, where they must choose to side with the Axis or Allied powers and join the fight for global victory - with a zombie twist.  In this virtual and historical simulation, players will be up against enemy troops as well as hundreds of the walking dead from the remains of the catastrophic battle.
