Runes Of Magic Gets Streamed

Frogster America today announced that it will utilise steaming technology to allow players quicker first-time access to its free to play MMO, Runes of Magic.

Due to the size of RoM’s client, players can currently expect to wait hours until they are able to create their first character once they begin downloading the game. However, thanks to a new deal with LLC’s streaming technology, MMO BitRaider, the download time should be reduced drastically. Only the essential parts of the game will be downloaded in the initial file, additional files will download in the background as players explore the RoM world.

“The biggest barrier to even wider adoption of free-to-play online games is the time it takes from when you start downloading the game, to when you get in and play,” said Lars Koschin, CEO of Frogster America, Inc. “We understand that people want to be able to get into a game as quickly as possible, and that is why we are working with BitRaider to make Runes of Magic the first free-to-play title to use the technology. We believe that by reducing the download and installation process to less than 5 minutes on most systems, we’ll see a rapid increase in players coming to the game”

Frogster expects the new software to be available in the next few weeks; check back for news on its progress.
