The folks at Huxley have announced that they are now accepting sign-ups to take part in the closed beta for this upcoming MMO-FPS hybrid.
Irvine, Calif. – May 7, 2009 – The dream game for twitch-heavy first-person shooter (FPS) players looking for the character development and community found in massively multi-player online (MMO) games is within reach. Huxley: The Dystopia kicked-off the second phase of its teaser Web site, marking the beginning of closed beta testing signups for ijji.com’s first-of-its-kind Unreal Engine 3-based MMOFPS. Now eager players can enter their names for a chance to be among the first to try Huxley: The Dystopia.
The Huxley: The Dystopia site’s new additions also boast a variety of previously unseen surprises and tidbits about the game. New items include videos, access to forums, screenshots, character descriptions, storyline background, and much more.
“Huxley: The Dystopia is ready to reveal what it has evolved into, and we want our community to be the first to see the great progress we’ve made gearing up for the game’s launch,” said Philip Yun, CEO, NHN USA, Inc. “As just talking about the game doesn’t do it justice, we are excited to invite players in to see exactly how we brought together elements of FPS’ fast action and MMO’s character development, combining it all within a intricate storyline with stunning visuals.”
Huxley: The Dystopia is a powerful combination of massively multi-player online (MMO) game character development elements and the twitch-based fast-action game play of an Unreal Engine 3-based first person shooter (FPS). Players are thrust into a dynamic world of crisp graphics and realistic environments, where they align themselves with one of two races, Sapiens or Alternatives, in the battle to harness dwindling resources in a war-torn land. Game play is endlessly peppered with attacks from and against the Hybrid, a mysterious third group born of the two races.
