Those of you looking for a lag-free MMO experience with PvP (and are tired of Age of Reckoning) need look no further. Runes of Magic will be lavishing latency love on the Australian/New Zealand market, starting today. You can download the client here, which they've kindly slimmed down to about half its size at 3.5GB.
Runes of Magic is free to play and free to download, relying on the microtransaction model. You can pay to save time - speeding up grind quests and transport - or just for cosmetic stuff. It's your standard MMO fare, with the same classes & abilities you're used to. You do also have the ability to combine two classes later on - and at this price, who can argue?
Kotaku AU will be interviewing Tony Tang, Business Development Manager at Runewaker Entertainment, and Tobias Gerlinger, CEO of Frogster Pacific, later today. Any questions you'd like to ask these gents?
