with the Axis or Allied powers and join the fight for global victory–

with a zombie twist.?In this virtual and historical simulation, players

will be up against enemy troops as well as hundreds of the walking dead

from the remains of the catastrophic battle.

Speed is an advantage as players who dash their way through with rapid

movements adds to the game’s action-packed game play and liveliness. The

ability for players to enter the game by choosing channels without having

to select a server provides a quicker way for players to join in on the

action. Players can also set their own unique characters with specialized

skills. Players must watch their weight limit and be strategic about the

weapons they carry with them around the battlefield.

For beginners new to the Karma Online series, players can warm up their

soldiers in the special map provided before actually joining the real

battle. Gamers can practice their skills by shooting randomly at hundreds

of zombies wandering around in AI mode, without the worries of being

killed by other players. Channels are classified by ranks and winning rate

so players can pick out the best fit for them.
