RaiderZ Closed Beta Giveaway: Win a Trip to PAX Prime

July 26th, 2012 by Crowbar Comments

RaiderZ is the new MMORPG from Perfect World Entertainment (Blacklight Retribution and Rusty Hearts).

The once prosperous and powerful kingdom of Rendel has finally crumbled. Vicious beasts, awakened by the contamination of the Prime Stone, roam the lands with an insatiable thirst for blood and a desire to claim Rendel as their own. The horde has grown too strong and endless waves of mutated creatures continue to slowly claw away at the last remaining barrier between beasts and humans.

There is still, however, a small glimmer of hope for the ill-fated kingdom. A team of champions with weapons and armor forged from the contaminated beasts has risen to slay the marauding monsters. Enter a world dominated by fearsome beasts and put your skills to the test! In this free-to-play MMO join a hunting party and engage in fierce battles against colossal monsters. Time attacks and dodges in order to succeed… and survive. The monsters in Rendel won’t just kindly knock you about: these colossal beasts will throw you, crush you and eat you alive! Dodge and parry to avoid their crushing blows and razor-sharp teeth.

From what the game descriptions have said, it is a cooler version of Monster Hunter and an MMO. I am not easily excited about F2P games, let alone MMORPG titles. However, RaiderZ looks incredibly promising. In light of this new MMORPG from Perfect World Entertainment, Following the Nerd is giving away five beta codes. There are two ways to enter.
