Battle of the Immortals levels up

Posted by: Chad at 5/19/2010 7:05 PM
The open beta for Battle of the Immortals has been available since May 4.  I've logged a number of hours in-game and it was always busy.  Perfect World Entertainment has seen the player count and have responded by adding a fourth server.  It's called "Poseidon" to deal with the "flood of players."  

It's an interesting game.  There is actually so much content (especially for a free-to-play title) that it's easy to get confused.  With some further refinement, Battle of the Immortals could be a very nice choice for its target market.  Have you had a chance to play it?  Let us know what you thought.
