Swashbuckling action-MMO Kartuga prepares to set sail
"InnoGames, one of the worldwide leading publishers and developers of browser-based games, has today revealed that the closed beta for hotly-anticipated pirate action game Kartuga will begin in February.
When the beta launches next month, pre-registered players will have the opportunity to be among the first to conquer the world from their browser, in this jaw-dropping Unity 3D multiplayer adventure.
Kartuga is a brilliant new browser-based MMO which puts players in charge of one of three fully customisable classes of ship. The game’s core offering is simple: to deliver an ocean full of promise, adventure and potential riches – and tense, nail-biting sea-battles.
Co-operative PvP is very much the focus, with an open world for cool downs and exploring beautiful kingdoms in between battles. Each ship can be customised to suit a particular playing style – with players gaining skill points by levelling up.
And what worlds they are: with Ithosia, Kartu and the Empire of the Sun all available for plundering, players have a wonderful world to explore. And with various sectors within each world offering PvP missions or PvE quests, there’s always an adventure just over the horizon.
“So far, already 50,000 players pre-registered for the game and we cannot wait to show it to them”, says InnoGames spokesman Dennis Heinert. “The game adds new perspectives to the pirate genre. The setting does not have anything to do with clichéd Caribbean parrots, but will lead the players to three distinct areas. This is all free to play and massively multiplayer in a persistent world.”
Players have a few more days to sign up to the closed beta by heading over to www.kartuga.com."
