The free to play fantasy MMORPG Runes of Magic can now be played in a browser. Players can choose between the normal client version and the browser version thanks to the implementation of Kalydo streaming technology by Dutch gaming specialist, Eximion. Game quality is not compromised in the new version, and Runes of Magic can now be played on any PC that meets the technical requirements without having to download the full client. For now the browser version will be offered in Europe only.

Downloading the browser version is fast and only requires the transmission of a small data package before players can get stuck in. It generally takes around 30 seconds before they reach the main menu and can move onto character creation.

The browser version runs on the same servers as the client version, so players can still get together in familiar surroundings. The platforms currently supported include Windows 7, Vista and XP with Service Pack 2 installed. Supported browsers include the most up-to-date versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome.

More information as well as how to get started in the game can be found at: http://browser.runesofmagic.com.

It seems that a few of you are getting slightly off topic. As for Runes of Magic going browser based, i think that if a game with the quality of ROM has the ability to turn browser based then many other high quality free to play mmo's could also become browser based in the near future. Imagine the impact that it would have on the mmo community if games like WOW or Forsaken World became browser based. I feel that this is just the beginning of a very big change in online gaming.

FORSAKEN WORLD OR GTFO. GW2 is for fail mmorpgers. it is just classless fagfest of shutting eachothers skills down. woooowww so lame. The entire franchise was an alternative for failure mmorpgers. And now the mmo version is the same.
