PC Games – Dungeon Runners Launches!

Filed under: PC Games — Ramajay @ 7:21 am

Dungeon Runners is a Diablo-esque full 3D MMORPG type game by NCSoft. Players can download the client for free, and play for free but have the option to pay US$4.99 a month for additional features.

Gamers are asked to download a small client file of about 375k which in turn downloads the full game client which is about 420MB. Graphics are acceptable, reminding me of Warcraft 3 or Heroes of Might and Magic with some better effects. The game seems to be pure hack and slash Action RPG fare, which isn’t a bad thing.

Give it a whirl, after all it’s free. 🙂
