Closed beta testing begins Wednesday, with open status occurring early next year. To get in on the action, go here.
“This is a huge step for us,” said Joe Ybarra, FireSky senior vice president strategic operations. “We’ve spent the better part of the last two years building our publishing unit and making sure that our Beta and our 2009 launch exceed everyone’s expectations.”
The Stargate Worlds Closed Beta will feature a staggered entry as testers are allowed into the game in waves. New areas and archetypes will be added over the course of the play test until all features are thoroughly tested and bugs are found and fixed.
“This is the home stretch and there’s no time to let up,” said Stargate Worlds Studio Head Dan Elggren. We need these beta testers to put a new set of eyes on the game and help us make Stargate Worlds the success that we all believe it can be.”
