Frogster Interactive Announces Successful Start to Open Beta Test

Frogster Interactive today announced that the start of Runes of Magic’s open beta phase exceeded all expectations. Over 100,000 characters were created in the first 24 hours and are now populating the world of Taborea. Due to the high number of players, Frogster opened an additional game world on Monday afternoon. The international community now is spread over seven servers – even though Runes of Magic is only in the early stages of the open beta phase.

In the first few hours Frogster also noted a significant increase in registration numbers. Out of the total number of 220,000 registrations, more than 20,000 Accounts were created on Monday alone and immediately entered the game world: more than 2 million quests were completed in over 200,000 hours of combined playing time in the game world of Taborea. These numbers underline the relevance of quests and immersive background story in the MMORPG developed by Runewaker Entertainment.

“We will systematically analyze the feedback of the high number of players in the coming weeks and use it to give Runes of Magic the final polish for the official release in the first quarter of 2009,” said Daniel Ullrich, director of product management. “The beta is now open to all interested players and the game can be downloaded free of charge after a short registration on”
