Brawl Busters: Coming Soon For Everyone

Rock Hippo Productions announced that its upcoming online multiplayer action game, Brawl Busters, will begin the Open Beta phase starting Thursday, November the 3rd.

The game update features two new modes, all new weapons and cool, never-before-seen outfits. The website will also receive an update that will allow players to join the Brawl Busters community in the Busters Centre. Players can expect more new features to be announced with the start of the Open Beta next week!

“We invite fans to check out the Open Beta trailer and screenshots so they can get a real feel for the non-stop action that awaits them,” said Howard He, President and CEO of Rock Hippo Productions.

Rock Hippo is always looking for players’ feedback. All Closed Beta participants, aka “Original Busters”, are asked to answer a short, 5 to 7 minute survey, that will help Rock Hippo make Brawl Busters a better game down the road.

For compensation every “Original Buster” who answers the survey will receive a healthy Buster Points prize.

One major concern of players of any massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG) is the presence of bots. Silkroad-R implements several new in-game strategies that have either eliminated or greatly reduced the presence of even the most sophisticated bot programs. In addition, Joymax has built the security and network platform in Silkroad-R from the ground-up to ensure that players are protected from in-game attacks and have a clean and safe environment to play. However, in the unlikely event that a bot does enter the system, Joymax has also implemented several polices that effectively remove the main incentives for players to turn to botting.

“Joymax’s main mission for 2011 was to find an answer to the two questions, ‘What do our players want?’, and ‘How can we give it to them?’” said Joymax CEO, Nam-chul Kim. ‘But to quote a line from the movie the Matrix, ‘There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path. ‘Silkroad-R is our attempt at walking the path. It incorporates all of the most wanted player requests, from faster level-ups, less bots, and a cleaner UI to improved character balance.”
