Posted Thu, Aug 09, 2007 by Cody Bye

It's like playing Diablo 2 all over again.

K2 Networks is definitely getting into a groove when it comes to localizing and preparing Asian-MMOGs for the Western marketplace. Red Stone, which was announced only a few months ago, is already entering open beta and looks to continue the trend of quality free-to-play games from K2.

Here's the press release:

IRVINE, Calif. – August 9, 2007 – K2 Network, Inc. (www.k2network.net), an online game publisher announced today that its upcoming 2D Fantasy MMORPG, Red Stone is now in beta and open to the public. The game can be downloaded for free at http://www.playredstone.com/download.php

Red Stone, a Free2Play, episodic MMORPG, offers players a unique fantasy experience with a deep and compelling storyline set in a detailed and dangerous setting. Offering 8 unique transforming character classes and compelling strategic missions, the player will seek to recover the lost shards of a powerful jewel in order to restore peace to the destroyed world.

“Red Stone’s mesmeric storyline and highly original character set are just a few of the appealing ingredients,” said Matt Norton, Senior Producer at K2 Network. “Add to that its Free2play element and classic style presentation and gameplay, we believe Red Stone has global appeal that will charm and captivate the MMORPG community.”

K2 Network has also launched Red Stone’s new website and forums which will play host to exciting promotions within the game. Valuable prizes, unique and rare items, as well as complete PC gaming packages from top companies will be awarded to gamers who reach a key milestone in the game.

Gamers will enjoy Red Stone’s unique Transform System where all characters have the ability to change jobs and weapons as well as transform into other characters, enabling unique, strategic gameplay. Also setting it apart from other MMORPG’s, Red Stone characters do not use Mana (MP) when spells and skills are used; instead, they use a rechargeable Charge Point (CP) system, challenging players to use their skills strategically.

Gamers interested in being part of the open beta which is now live and continues through until early September should visit http://www.playredstone.com to sign up and start playing.
