Alpha Press Release

December 11, 2013 – Global game publisher Reality Squared Games (R2Games) announced today that the Alpha test for their upcoming beat 'em up MMORPG, Blade Hunter, will begin on Thursday, December 12th at 10:00 AM EST. R2Games invites players from across the world to take an early look at this action-packed browser title.

Set in a vibrant fantasy world, Blade Hunter fuses classic side-scrolling beat 'em up gameplay with modern MMORPG features. Alpha 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.

While Blade Hunter can be enjoyed solo, and each hero can gather and equip a group of independent companions, players that form parties and Guilds will gain the strength to take on any challenge. The most determined players will unlock Bladesouls, spirits of war that can change the course of any encounter, from time-limited multiplayer events to ranked cross-server PvP duels.

Players that participate in the open Blade Hunter Alpha will get a unique chance to see an innovative action MMORPG in action. Information on how to participate in the test, as well as a more detailed look at the game, can be found on the official Blade Hunter website, Facebook, and Twitter:
