InnoGames has revealed that the closed beta for hotly-anticipated pirate action videogame, Kartuga, will take place later this month. When the beta launches, pre-registered players will have the opportunity to be among the first to conquer the world from their browser in this Unity 3D multiplayer adventure.
Kartuga is a new browser-based massively multiplayer online (MMO) videogame which puts players in charge of one of three fully customisable classes of ship. The videogame’s core offering is simple: to deliver an ocean full of promise, adventure and potential riches – and nail-biting sea-battles.
A combination of co-operative and player versus player (PvP) combat is very much the focus, with an open world for cool downs and exploring beautiful kingdoms in between battles. Each ship can be customised to suit a particular playing style – with players gaining skill points by levelling-up.
“So far, already 50,000 players pre-registered for the game and we cannot wait to show it to them,” says InnoGames spokesman Dennis Heinert. “The game adds new perspectives to the pirate genre. The setting does not have anything to do with clichéd Caribbean parrots, but will lead the players to three distinct areas. This is all free to play and massively multiplayer in a persistent world.”
Players have a few more days to sign up to the closed beta by heading over to http://www.kartuga.com/. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Kartuga up to and beyond the closed beta testing phase.
