PoxNora video and open beta news

Octopi has released a new gameplay trailer showcasing their upcoming online strategy game called PoxNora. If you're up for a run-through of that puppy, get a move-on. The open beta only goes through this month and the game will be launching on August 1. This is another "free play" game where you get a basic set of goodies (in this case, they're "Runes") and you can purchase additional game content in packs as you see fit. This is becoming a rather popular method of running online games... and I can't say I wholly disagree with it. I would much rather keep an account running on a game with less capability than have to pay monthly when I'm not able to play much. That's a whole 'nother discussion there, so I'll drop that like it is the hot.

Here's a clip of info to get you running to download PoxNora. It sounds (and looks, from the trailer) pretty sweet:

The game is played out across a variety of maps where champions do battle to collect Nora, a vital resource used to bring Runes into play. Runes allow players to summon champions, equipment, relics and spells to the battlefield. Champions gain experience during play that can be used to upgrade or learn new attributes and abilities, meaning that as your play style evolves, so do your champions. The construction of your battlegroup and careful use of powers and attacks are vital to success.

PoxNora runs on Java-enabled Internet browsers on Windows, Macintosh and Linux computers. The game is free to download, install and play. For more information, visit the official website - http://www.poxnora.com.
