Runes of Magic Population Hits
Over 300,000 Players

Highly Anticipated MMORPG Adding
More New Content and Features in Run Up to Launch

Frogster America today announced
that in less than a month, the population of its highly anticipated free-to-play
MMORPG Runes of Magic, has already surpassed 300,000 players. The steady
population growth will enable Frogster to continuously update and polish the
game during the run up to its formal launch in March 2009.

“Frogster would like to thank our
dedicated community for their constructive feedback since the beginning of the
open beta,” said Daniel Ullrich, Director of Product Management at Frogster
Interactive. “With the development of the launch content almost complete, it’s
now up to the community to do their part in giving us feedback to make the game
great. Runes of Magic is their game and we want to make sure the new content and
features we are creating continually add to the excitement and fun in the
world.”

During the festive break, Runes of
Magic convinced critics and won several prestigious awards from the games media.
After declaring Runes of Magic as the best free-to-play game of Show at the
Games Convention 2008 in August, TenTonHammer.com named Runes of Magic “Surprise
Hit 2008”. The editors of Mmorpg-planet.com selected Runes of Magic as the “Best
Free MMORPG of 2008” and it was the only free-to-play title to be nominated for
MMORPG.com’s upcoming “Most anticipated Game of 2009” Readers Choice award.

Runes of Magic began its open beta
in December with an English and German version. All interested players can now
