Runes of Magic is a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG from Runewalker Studios and Gameforge set in the mythical land of Taborea. The game offers traditional questing, leveling, dungeons, guilds, PvP, player housing, and guild castles, with noticeable twists, such as the ability to dual-class. Runes of Magic offers AAA content within a free-to-play model, and has had several content expansions, including The Elven Prophecy, The Elder Kingdoms, Lands of Despair, and Fires of Shadowforge.
Runes of Magic has been updated with the latest patch that brings a number of bug fixes on board as well as the annual Pumpkin Festival. Players can take part in a number of Trick-or-Treat events, a monster parade, Kaz Madness, the Pumpkinhead Challenge, become a Pumpkin Prankster and many other in game Halloween events.
Runes of Magic is turning four this year. The team has released a new trailer to celebrate the momentous occasion and has announced a slate of in-game events to take place during "Anniversary Week" from March 19-26.
Runes of Magic players will have an entirely new region to explore next week with the arrival of Chrysalia. The region is the home of dragons but is plagued by a sentient race of ant-like creatures. To celebrate Chrysalia's announcement, the RoM team has released a flythrough video.
The Runes of Magic site has been overhauled and relaunched to give players easier access to information, guides and other features that are useful to move through Taborea.
