Reality Squared Games (R2Games) today announced the immediate start of the highly anticipated alpha testing period for the side-scrolling, beat 'em up MMORPG title, Blade Hunter. Unlike the traditional tab-targeting and hot-key approach to combat, Blade Hunter provides a mix of old-school side-scrolling action with skill-based combination attacks and abilities. Providing a blast of nostalgia while still remaining fresh and interesting.
The developers have announced that the alpha testing has begun today with players having access to 3 classes planned for launch, the Knight, Rogue and Valkyrie; each with their own exciting array of deadly combo's and abilities.
