IRVINE, Calif. – June 2, 2009 – What if WWII didn’t end? ijji.com, the premier eight million members-strong online destination for hardcore gamers, is offering a glimpse into a Europe entirely under Axis’ control in KARMA: Operation Barbarossa, the most recently announced title to join the portal. The game boasts frenetic multi-player first-person shooter (MOFPS) action where players chose to play with or against Germany as they make a play for the Soviet Union’s weakened boarders.

“KARMA: Operation Barbarossa serves as another great addition that furthers ijji.com’s hardcore gaming and FPS agenda,” said Philip Yun, CEO, NHN USA, which hosts ijji.com. “We are proud to be a leader in providing a powerful and specialized gaming experience to our members. Our fans crave the immersive, realistic experiences wrongly associated exclusively with console gaming. We don’t believe in those boundaries, so we are bringing hardcore triple-A titles to the online, free-to-play space.”

In KARMA: Operation Barbarossa, is set in a Europe that hasn’t seen the end of the Second World War. The entire continent is under Germany’s unyielding control. As the Axis’ white-knuckled grip threatens to extend East, a bloody strike on the Soviet Union proves imminent. The tension is palpable as a strained Europe embarks on the latest rounds of fighting in the fast-action combat zones of KARMA: Operation Barbarossa.

Developed by Dragonfly, Futureport and Blueside, KARMA: Operation Barbarossa will be released by ijji.com for the PC in late 2009. More information will be available shortly at www.ijji.com.
