Runes of Magic is a free mmorpg, that is pretty similar looking to World of Warcraft. If you don’t remember, or are new to my blog, I’ve recommended Runes of Magic a while back. It’s a fairly new MMorpg that has many features that rival pay to play mmorpgs. Frogsters mmorpg, Runes of Magic, now has over one million registered users, in a little less then two months of it’s official launch.
Free-To-Play games generally attract more users then Pay to Play games anyway, so it’s success isn’t that much of a surprise. Especially taking into consideration how much of a WoW Clone it looks like. Frogster is over joyous in saying that they’ve been looking for a hit mmorpg for two years, and finally found one with Runes of Magic.
Frogster has also teamed up with BitRaider to allow the game to be downloaded at a faster pace. Some people are complaining that for a game company to succeed they need to copy off of another one’s success. Such as how Frogster is seemingly copying off of World of Warcrafts success. Of course, many do not think that way. To me, a good game is a good game. I doubt Runes of Magic is affecting World of Warcraft sales in the slightest, and as far as I’m concerned, they are targetting two different audiences. So it’s all fair game. I personally have played this game, it’s pretty fun for mmorpg fans.
