R2 Games closed the Alpha testing for their free to play, browser based, MMORPG, Stormthrone a few days ago on April 9th. A few days later and the game is ready to jump into open beta starting on April 14th at 10 AM Eastern time. Players who log in after open beta starts will have no character wipes so make as much progress as you want, it’s all yours to keep.

The Stormthrone open beta will feature 2 servers, S1 Derajj’s Sanctum and S2 Rift Valley, that share cross server features for ease of gameplay. What hasn’t been announced yet, and it a bit of a concern for many on the game’s official forums, is if there are any plans to release servers that aren’t based on the U.S. time zones.

While being browser based, Stormthrone does have the option for players to download a mini-client if browser playing just isn’t your thing. Stormthrone also features 6 classes to chose from as you adventure through the isometric viewed world.

    R2gakes is definition of “shovel ware”. I cleaned horse stables before. Same concept. Publisher/horse piops out same looking round pooball. You shovel it, put in garbage.

    The site covers everything related to free to play mmos. With payed early access on 99% of any betas there’s not much news since they milk that as long as possible before open betas so the only real movements happening with any free mmos at the moment is browser and mobile/console stuff. Point being we can’t really attack the writers for front paging a browser game when there’s nothing better to publish without breaking the sites purpose.

      So a Gaming News Site should stop posting stuff because the game sucks? they would be out of bussiness if it was like that… seriously, if u dont like it, donĀ“t go blaming the people that are working on the news part.
