“We were astounded by the popularity of the pre-open beta, and would like to thank the thousands of players who have helped to continue to grow what is already a fantastic community,” said Joymax CEO, Nam-chul Kim. “With the open beta scheduled to begin in early August, we are now hard at work pouring through the community’s feedback to shape and expand the next stage of the beta program to make Karma Online an amazing player experience.”
The open beta will run from August 2nd to 16th and will introduce ten new maps including the Holy Ground map (team death-match mode) where opposing teams will need lightning fast reactions as they compete against one another in a church with a series of dark and claustrophobic underground tunnels. The open beta will also introduce two new characters that players have not yet been able to play as, Gunther and Karl, and a further 11 new diverse weapons bringing the total weaponry so far to 25, with more to be revealed and launched as the game nears its official launch.
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. KARMA Online: Prisoners of the Dead will be available in English, German, Spanish and Turkish.
