KARMA ONLINE: PRISONERS OF THE DEAD TO LAUNCH HUGE CONTENT PATCH FOR ONE-MONTH ANNIVERSARY

Seoul, Korea, October 14, 2011 - Joymax, a leading online game

developer and publisher, announced that it will celebrate the one

month anniversary of their first-person shooter World War II game,

Karma Online: Prisoners of the Dead, with a bang! Starting October 18,

players can visit the historical Cappadocia, armed with new weapons

while playing new characters. To learn more about the game, players

"KARMA continues to grow in a global market, and we're excited to be

reaching out to our players in Turkey and other regions," said Joymax

CEO, Nam-chul Kim.  "We've proven Prisoners of the Dead is a truly

international service that keeps pace with the most demanding FPS

users."

Two new characters will be added to the ranks of Axis and Allies: Ahmet

Kurtulus a fanatical Turkish soldier, and Dominic Williams, an

American patriot.  These characters will have unique attributes,

allowing for new builds not seen before in the game.  These two

characters are the perfect fit for the new maps now also available.

The loading docks will challenge players with multiple hiding spots -

both for allies and foes to be sitting, waiting for an ambush.  Or,

take a "relaxing" stroll around the Turkish region of Cappadocia - a

map modeled off of real world geography, perfect for a fire fight to

the death!

KARMA players will also enjoy new game content, including an AI mode

for the Deathmatch system, allowing players and clans to practice

teamwork and strategies as well as sing play, while perfecting their

movements.  The clan matching system allows for players of equal skill

level to be paired together for the most intense clan matches to be

seen in the game yet.  This is all in addition to the Gatcha shooting

range, which allows players to obtain at random rare and unique

weapons that are permanent.

Multiple weapons will also be added or updated, including the Madsen,

Johnson, and a full GOLD weapons line including the MP40, STG44, and

Kar98k.  The cash shop now also stocks the AKS-74, CAMO M4A1, and the

popular Karabella.
