Altis Gates goes into Beta
Is IGGgetting it's testphases confused? Even though they call it an Alpha test, they are inviting players to it already AND players will be allowed to keep their characters after the test is over. Sounds like a Beta test to us!
Here is the press release from our good friends at IGG:
Altis Gates, IGG’s new 2.5D MMORPG that features shapeshifting, has entered the final preparation phase for its Alpha Test. The game’s official website (http://ag.igg.com/main.php) is now live, and IGG has announced that the Alpha Test will begin at 8:00pm EST(GMT-5) on January 19th, 2010. Characters created during the test will be saved so players can use them afterward.
The Alpha Test will be ended at 10:00pm EST(GMT-5) on January 22nd,2010. Its primary purpose is to give players a brief introduction to the magical world of Altis Gates and provide the Altis Gates team with valuable feedback. IGG will be giving away 200 activation codes for the test. Most of those will be given out to media members who have a longstanding relationship with IGG, as well as the company’s most loyal players from its other games.
