Karlsruhe, 20/11/2012 – After the success of the beta phase, the gates to the monster-hunting MMO RaiderZ are open as of today, initially in English and German language versions. Players can look forward to exciting battles against massive boss opponents, tons of engaging quests, extensive PvP features and a sophisticated guild system. RaiderZ also allows players to create truly individual characters and to imbue them with over 350 talents and diverse equipment items – your will be done!

Winter Event, Update in Early 2013

Winter is fast approaching, but all is not doom and gloom since there’s a fantastic event to look forward to. But there’s even more – in early 2013, Patch 1.1 will be arriving, the first of many planned content updates. Here’s what Rüdiger Mörsch, our Product Director, had to say on the launch of RaiderZ: “I’m really excited that we’ve now reached release status after a thoroughly successful beta phase. I’d like to take this chance to thank our beta testers for the great feedback and ample constructive criticism. I’m certain that RaiderZ will be a lot of fun for the players and us.”
