WWII Yields to ijji.com's Imagination, Nightmares as KARMA: Operation Barbarossa Heads into Closed Beta
Gamers should prepare to see history in a new light. The leading hardcore online gaming portal, ijji.com, announced the kickoff of closed beta testing (CBT) for its World War II-inspired multi-player online first-person shooter (MOFPS), KARMA: Operation Barbarossa. KARMA's version of the Second World War isn't the war from history books - the Germans never lost and their death grip on Europe continues to widen. And just when players think they've seen the entire nightmare of war, zombie-riddled maps pit them against an ultimate adversary, the undead.
"ijji.com strives to provide a well-rounded, hardcore gaming experience for its nearly 10 million community members, and the addition of KARMA, with its unique twist on World War II and zombified maps is a no-brainer," said Philip Yun, CEO, NHN USA, Inc. "ijji.com is a one stop shop for seasoned gamers' needs, especially those seeking variety in the FPS genre - from science fiction to modern day warfare to the wars of our ancestors, to name a few."
In KARMA: Operation Barbarossa,tenacious gameplay and thrilling missions will transport gamers to a time when battles relied on soldiers' gut instincts and raw skills to attain glory on the battlefield without the aid of technology. Fast action combat ensues in a war-torn Europe that is completely under German control, enveloped in a similar storyline as that of World War II. Players choose which side to fight for; many must put cowardice aside and go head-to-head with violent and ruthless German soldiers in order torestore peace and save innocent lives in Europe, while others will enter the battle to defend the tyranny of the Axis nation.
The battle begins with the living pitted against each other - and the undead - as the fate of the world hangs in the balance. Players interested in getting an early glimpse at what's behind the Iron Curtain sign up here: http://karma.ijji.com.
