Closed Beta Begins!

Posted by Jon Wood on Aug 18, 2005  | Comments

Closed Beta Begins! -

City of Villains announced today (on the City of Heroes Website) that they are beginning the "Closed Beta" phase of production. This is an exciting time in a game's production for both developers and players. While they're anxious to get as many people into their test as possible, the nature of the beast dictates that only a select few will be invited. Below, find the press release detailing who will be getting in and when.

 City of Villains Closed Beta Is Starting!

Hello everyone!

I am very pleased to announce to you (as promised) that the start of the City of Villains Closed Beta Test is finally upon us!

As we have mentioned in the past, first priority into the Closed Beta will be offered to long-time, currently active City of Heroes subscribers as part of a program designed to reward their continued support. Please note that due to the sheer number of people who have been with us for 12 months or longer, not everyone who qualifies under this program will receive an invitation today. Because of hardware constraints, stability issues, etc., beta tests typically start small and then ramp up gradually to include more and more people. This test is no exception. So, if you are a long-time subscriber and you don’t receive an invitation right away, please do not bombard us with PMs and email asking why you didn’t get one! Everyone who qualifies under this program will be invited into the Closed Beta eventually.

Contest winners should expect to receive invites within the next couple of weeks. We will send you an email in the coming days to verify your account information, so please be on the lookout for that.

For those of you who pre-ordered City of Villains or won a beta slot at E3, the exact date of your beta entry is still being determined. However, it will be at a later stage, after those who qualify under our long-time subscriber program have been invited.

As a reminder, once you have entered the City of Villains Closed Beta, you are legally bound by a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). Please be considerate and don’t flaunt your participation to other members of the City of Heroes community. All it will do is make the people who haven’t been invited feel bad, and will only encourage them to ask you for information that you cannot give them. Please note that no discussion of the game whatsoever includes no taking of screenshots, no verbal anecdotes, and no commenting on message boards or in chats about any aspect of the game. Should you do any of the mentioned or violate the Non-Disclosure Agreement in any way, it will result in automatic removal from the Closed Beta and legal action may be taken against you.

We are very excited to see the start of Closed Beta and can't wait to see you there!

Yours in villainy,

Check out the press release and then check out City of Villains.
