We’re excited to be able to finally announce when all players can experience RaiderZ for themselves.”

RaiderZ is a 3D fantasy MMORPG where players players must hunt together giant boss monsters or die alone in massive raid battles. The game will utilize ‘non-targeting’ combat which means players will have to swing, and dodge attacks in real time without the helper of auto-aimers or even cross-hairs.
