The fantasy MMORPG Runes of Magic can now be played in a browser. Players can choose between the normal client version and the browser version thanks to the implementation of Kalydo streaming technology by Dutch gaming specialist, Eximion. Game quality is not compromised in the new version, and RoM can now be played on any PC that meets the technical requirements without having to download the full client. For now the browser version will be offered in Europe only.
Downloading the browser version is fast and only requires the transmission of a small data package before players can get stuck in. It generally takes around 30 seconds before they reach the main menu and can move onto character creation.
The browser version runs on the same servers as the client version, so players can still get together in familiar surroundings. The platforms currently supported include Windows 7, Vista and XP with Service Pack 2 installed. Supported browsers include the most up-to-date versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome.
