Origins of Malu: Beta Starts on March 30th
Burning Dog Media just announced some great news for all Sandbox MMORPG fans in their latest “End of January” update blog post! Their upcoming game, Origins of Malu will be entering beta testing phase really soon.
In their huge list with their progress on the game, we also get a date for the upcoming beta test. It will be March 30, while the beta forums should be opening soon to prepare ground for the beta testing.
In Detail here is the info about the beta testing and how you can get accepted to it.
- The Beta date has been moved back to March 30th, 2013. We do not expect any further delays.
- The Beta forums will be opened up tomorrow for questions and answers concerning the beta. So feel free to ask all your burning questions and we will do our best to answer them as fast as we can.
- The Beta will be a closed beta to test systems and scalability.
- The Beta registration will be hosted by Alienware and you will be able to sign up on AlienwareArena.com. This will be launched towards the end of February.
- We will release 20,000 Beta key through Alienware only. However, long time, active community members will be treated to a key and so will people who backed us on Kick Starter before we pulled the plug.
- Combat and faction wars will be a major point of the beta. One of our goals has always been large scale battles and this is our chance to test it on that scale.
- Testers will have access to around roughly 100 km. squared to explore.
- After this phase of Beta completes, another phase will follow. Once you have a key you are set for all future beta phases.
