Stephen Reid, the Community Director for Gazillion Entertainment, has posted the first part of the ‘Developer Blog’ on Marvel Heroes’ site. And what a first post! The introduction opens up the registrations for the closed beta of this upcoming MMO Action RPG. Stephen calls upon you, the Marvel fans, to sign up and help them out with constructive criticism and testing of the game.
Unlike many of today’s ‘closed betas,’ he made sure that everyone knew that this meant testing and not playing a demo or playing the game early. A fact many players (and companies) seem to forget. They have three steps to go by, step one is to register an account on their site. The second step has them sending out surveys which you have to answer to become eligible for closed beta testing. The last stage has them selecting the people that are going to be in the closed beta.
Good luck to those that apply!
The three steps are in detail after the cut.
Step 1: You register an account on MarvelHeroes.com
Today we opened up account registration on MarvelHeroes.com. If you haven’t done so already, you can register an account here. Your account details are important; your username is going to be what you use in-game, and your password will let you play – so be careful when you’re registering.
Over the next couple of days we’re going to email everyone who left their email address via our home page and let them know they can register an account. If you get an email and you already registered an account, you can ignore it. Registering an account does not get you immediate access to Closed Beta.
Step 2: We will send out Closed Beta surveys
We’d like to know a little more about our potential Closed Beta testers, so before we admit you to Closed Beta, we’re asking everyone to fill out a survey. To be eligible to fill out a survey, you’ll need to have registered an account (see Step 1!). The survey will ask you a few questions about the type of games you like to play and your experiences in other Betas.
There are no right or wrong answers on the survey – we’re looking for a whole range of experiences. However, if you don’t fill out the survey, at this stage, you won’t be eligible to be selected for Closed Beta. The survey link will be sent out to those people who register an account later this week. Filling out a Closed Beta survey does not get you immediate access to Closed Beta.
Step 3: We will select some applicants to join Closed Beta
When we have our surveys in-hand and have compiled all the data from them, we’ll start to select our first round of invitees to Closed Beta. That first round of invitees will be a very exclusive, small number of people.
Over time we’ll be adding many more people to Closed Beta, so there’s a really good chance that if you want to get in, you’ll be able to at some point. Please be patient as you wait your chance to be picked.
