Karlsruhe, 30. August 2018 | Gameforge and developers Runewaker released the award-winning role-playing title Runes of Magic worldwide on Steam yesterday. With around 10 million players in total, the free-to-play fantasy MMORPG is among the most successful titles in this genre, available to play in English, French, German, Spanish and Polish.
Celebrating its ninth anniversary in March, Runes of Magic continues to be enjoyed by a large and active community, which should grow considerably with the release on Steam. Gameforge hopes lots of new players will immerse themselves in the breathtaking fantasy world of Taborea, experiencing exciting adventures with one of the ten combinable character classes. It is also expected that many players will return for the launch. Gameforge has set up a slew of new servers for the European and North American regions to accommodate these players, providing fresh playing fields where they can rediscover all the challenges and excitement Runes of Magic has to offer from scratch.
Two DLC Packages for Steam Release
Two DLC packages will be available with Runes of Magic’s release on Steam. An initial starter pack eases players into the game with a selection of different potions, inventory and bank expansions, a mount and a pet. The second pack provides players with a complete costume set, an exclusive title, a mount, a pet, an additional character slot and a housing contract. Players can also collect Runes of Magic trading cards on Steam.
With its impressive range of features, Runes of Magic has been redefining the standard of free-to-play MMORPGs since 2009. The online role-playing game presents a multilayered background story embedded in the elaborate fantasy world of Taborea with over 5,000 quests. Players select their primary character class out of ten possible options, and then take on two additional classes, learning different elite skills for each individual class combination. Runes of Magic offers three playable races: the Elves, the Humans and the Shadowforge Dwarves, and players can highly customise the appearance of the character that will represent them in-game. Players also maintain a virtual home, which they can personalise with a broad selection of furniture and other practical items. In organised guilds, players have the opportunity to establish their own guild castle, which they can upgrade with additional buildings as well as powerful siege weapons to be used in thrilling guild wars. Thanks to exciting PvP content such as arenas and battlefields, the flexible and comprehensive user interface which can be adapted to any playing style, a wide array of challenging dungeons and many other features, Runes of Magic captivates all kinds of players.
