R2Games just announced the beginning of the Blade Hunter beta. The free action MMORPG will launch its open beta on Thursday, December 19th at 9:00 AM EST. All players are welcome to the Frozen Meadow server to create a permanent character.
Set in a vibrant fantasy world, Blade Hunter fuses classic side-scrolling beat’em up gameplay with modern MMORPG features. Players will take one of three unique classes – Knight, Rogue, and Valkyrie – into battle, each with an arsenal of powerful abilities. Thanks to time-tested combat mechanics, players of all skill levels will be able to execute aerial combos on a wide array of enemies, including screen-spanning bosses inspired by myth and legend.
