H, National Manager, Gaming, Sify ltd. “The learning and understanding time for the game is much shorter than the MMORPGs which normally take a little while to get into. This game will expand the online market. All the action (Non FPS) gamers would like this game” In order to play the game, a player can download the game directly from the site without paying any charges. Naveen added “With our experience in Publishing A3, we noticed that lot of gamers tried the game but a section of them did not continue. The reason being MMORPGs are very intense game where the fun is after one crosses certain level. The beauty of Rakion is that it caters to all those action gamers. Gamers can connect to global server and join India room” Maximum number of players in the game goes to 20 and for team play 10 players can be in per team.
