"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 JoymaxCEO, 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.

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 beseen 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.
