For all of you that have been dying to get into the Beta, you’ll only have to wait a bit longer. On May 1st via FilePlanet.com you’ll be able to signup to open beta which is mainly to stress test and get ready for the May 20th launch. Being mainly a stress test, Funcom is limiting the content that will be available and will be limiting characters to level 13. So while you won’t be able to do any of the cool stuff, you’ll at least get a chance to see something.
I was able to get into the beta a few months ago, but I didn’t really get very far. I think I reached level 16 with my highest character, then there was a character wipe and I only replayed to around lev 6, which is where I’m now. I haven’t played in over a month, but I’m updating my client right now and will write a preview of the game soon. Its less than a month away and with open beta coming the NDA will be lifted soon if it hasn’t been lifted already.
