Joymax announced that its upcoming World War II game, Karma Online: Prisoners of the Dead, has launched its pre-open beta test with much fanfare and bullets flying, which will run through Tuesday, July 19.

The pre-open beta runs now through July 19th, so players will have the next couple of weeks to familiarize themselves with the game, learn how to build a character from the ground up and customize them with a variety of skills, use many of the diverse weapons available in the game while blasting their opposing faction’s players and zombies. All of this time will just help them gain experience for when the game officially launches later this summer!

Developed in conjunction with Dragonfly, and published by Joymax, KARMA Online: Prisoners of the Dead is the newest installment in the KARMA Online series, the top online first-person shooter series in Korea. Players go back in time to World War II, where they must choose to side with the Axis or Allied powers and join the fight for global victory – with a zombie twist. In this virtual and historical simulation, players will be up against enemy troops as well as hundreds of the walking dead from the remains of the catastrophic battle.

    ijji already got Soldier Front and Alliance of Valiant Arms, so I guess they will take some time before releasing other shooting game, anyway Karma’s graphics dont look too nice, I always choose which Unreal Engine the graphic look most. Its graphic looks more close to a Unreal Engine 1, maybe 2, being AVA from ijji a Unreal Engine 3, also something that bothers EVERYONE is that almost every shooting game got that lobby and room system, its so old and antique, people dont like it anymore, the fact that every time you join a room someone kicks you because of your level, well, it sucks most games.

    I’m so glad they took off the unique Genesis A.D. to give us yet another generic WWII shooter, there just isn’t enough of them.

      You would be interested in the tribes games.When you think about it Another Day is not THAT unique.It’s kind of like someone said “Guys we should grab a UT/Tribes kind of game,modernize it, and add wall jumping.GENIUS” Nonetheless both Karma and AD are pretty decent.
      The only unique thing there might have been the stamina with the walljumping.
      Karma is not yet another generic WWII shooter.Karma would be yet another FPS game.The WWII is just the setting.You could have a FPS set in the civil war and another in the violent colonizations in far far away galaxies and they would still be generic in the core.
      Just my thoughts.

        You speak the truth. But I was talking about the setting, it feels different when you wield a clunky WWII gun and when you use a sci-fi gun. It’s not so much about the game as it is about the whole mood of the game, you know? The armours also looked rather nice in AD.
        But yeah I suppose both Halo and AD are/ware “inspired” by Tribes/UT. I look forward to the new Tribes and wish Unreal Tournament 3 was actually…you know…a tournament. 2003/4 are still the best ones imo and Unreal 3 should have been a different game like it was with 1 and 2.

    The game is okay for pre-open beta but It has some problems. The movement system is weird. When you sprint it works fine. When you stop sprinting he takes 2-3 more steps. That really will stop you from making good shots. In a lot of games there will be a smooth mouse option that you can turn off and on. In here. None. The mouse smoothing is on and you can’t turn it off. I suggest giving it a shot. If you don’t like it. Go with Project Blackout.
