Karos Online open beta begins today, Dec 4th 2009. Karos Online is a free to play fantasy MMORPG being developer by Galaxy Quest, which is set to be release before the years end. Although the open beta is scheduled to end on Dec 31st, so most likely the game will not be released until January.
During this open beta phase players will receive prizes for participating which are listed below. We received some closed beta keys last week for their final phase of closed beta testing, so if you didn’t get a change to snag on of those keys, here’s your chance to play the game in open beta.
Referring friends: From the start of open beta, players will be able to invite their friends to play Karos Online via the official website. For every five friends who join the game and reach level 5, the referring player will receive a reward, as follows:
- Five friends will award the player 10 Strength Potions
- Ten friends will award the player 3 Weapon Enchant Scrolls and 3 Armor Enchant Scrolls
- Twenty friends will award the player 5 Weapon Enchant Scrolls and 5 Armor Enchant Scrolls
- The first invited friend to reach level 5 will be awarded 5 Big Potions of Rejuvenation, which restore their character’s HP and MP.
Entering a Gift Key: Gift Keys will be offered by participating websites starting this week. Upon entering a Gift Key, players will receive 5 Strength potions which temporarily increase their character’s movement and attack speed.
Levelling up: Upon reaching levels 5, 10 and 20, players will be automatically entered into a weekly prize draw. The draw will take place every Friday, and winning players will be announced on www.karosgame.com. The higher the level, the greater the prize!
- Level 5 (10 weekly winners): an Amethyst, Diamond or Sapphire (depending on character’s class) giving a bonus when combined with an accessory
- Level 10 (4 weekly winners): 10 Weapon Enchant Scrolls and 10 Armor Enchant Scrolls
- Level 20 (1 weekly winner): an Iron Wyvern, a Holy Creature piece of armor which serves as a mount in the game.
Guild building: The start of open beta will also kick off a month-long build-up exercise for guilds that will run through the 31st of December. Guilds meeting the target criteria on the 31st will receive exciting prize bundles — more details coming soon!
