and Reakktor Media
made an announcement this morning that many fans have been looking forward to: Black Prophecy
is entering closed beta. We've been following this game with interest here at Massively, enjoying a hands-on look
as well as a series of Q&A sessions
with the developers.
If you're unfamiliar with Black Prophecy
, it's described as a sci-fi space action MMO, and has been getting a fair amount of attention from MMO fans. It looks like the developers are taking things slowly and making sure it's done well: "The focus during the first phase of testing will be on server and program stability."
For that reason, this first round of closed beta won't be open to thousands of players -- only about a hundred will make it in and go on to make their attempts at crashing the server.
Signups for closed beta are going on now, so head to the signup page
if you're interested, and good luck.
