Players get to test the new comic book styled action MMO for the first time
Cryptic Studios announced today that players can now sign up for a chance to participate in the first closed beta for Champions Online, an action massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) slated for release in the spring of 2009. This PC specific beta begins in mid-November 2008.
This closed beta is an exciting step in the evolution of Champions Online, said Jack Emmert, chief creative officer for Cryptic Studios. All of us here in the Cryptic offices have been playing the game for a while now, and were excited to invite others in to have as much fun with Champions Online as weve been having internally.
Champions Online gives players the power of total customization for their hero experience while they explore a vast comic book universe. Gamers create their heros name, back story, costume, powers and abilities as well as design their own personal nemesis and his or her back story, which will guarantee a truly unique experience.
Champions Online is being developed by Cryptic Studios as a cross-platform project including PC and current gen console systems, and is published by 2K Games, the publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO).
