The few, the proud, the Otherland
closed beta testers! Players interested in testing the upcoming free-to-play fantasy and sci-fi mixed MMORPG should keep an eye on their email; Gamigo
has announced that the first closed beta test for Otherland
will be happening this weekend. From August 31st until September 2nd, select accounts will be given access to the beta.
This first test weekend, however, will be kept relatively small. Otherland
Product Manager Florian Hörpel stated, "A small, manageable group of accounts will be given access to the servers for the first closed-beta weekend. This is because we want to get a feel for the limits of the systems." Interested players who do not receive an invitation this time around shouldn't despair -- they will have the chance to join in future beta events. Sign-ups to participate are on the official site.
