Allods Team Studio has revealed the Closed Beta start for 'Pirates. Allods Online' set to begin on July 27th. Players will be able to take part in the Russian-language version of the game (currently the only one available). At this time there is no word on when or if this ship combat based title will be translated to other languages.
Pirates. Allods Online puts players on faction-based airships of different classes and types in PvP battles which yield gold and experience which can be used to purchase items to progress and upgrade ships. During CBT 3 of 4 game modes will be available for players to test, namely Control Point, Caravans and Deadman's Chest.
At this time CBT is region-locked, but you can see more about the game on the official Pirates. Allods Online site.
