VR MMO, Nostos, is getting a closed beta from September 5 - 9, and is now accepting applicants.

Nostos is an upcoming open-world survival MMO with VR compatibility from NetEase Games. In Nostos, Pioneers must rebuild what remains of humanity while battling harsh climates, formidable foes, limited resources, and the ravenous “Coral Sea.”

Nostos will first receive Vive support, with a later rollout for Oculus Rift and Quest, as well as a non-VR Steam version.

To enter the drawing to participate in the Closed Beta Test, players must visit the official Nostos Twitter or Facebook pages and share the pinned posts along with the hashtag #NostosBetaTest. If you share the post with the hashtag, you may be chosen at random to participate.

If you sign up (you can do so here), you’ll be able to experience ~2 hours of main storyline gameplay as well as side quests and open-world exploration.

The Closed Beta Test will also feature:

  • Main Storyline: Testers will be able to play through two main storyline missions that amount to ~2 hours of gameplay.
  • Side Storyline: New side missions will appear at random for every tester.
  • Open-World Exploration: An expanded map offers testers the opportunity to explore the various terrains Nostos has to offer.
  • Enhanced Graphics and Realistic Weather: Players can immersive themselves in the world of Nostos with the addition of clouds, moss, flowers, fireflies, animals, NPCs, and changing weather such as rain, snow, and lightening.

If you missed it, another VR MMO, Zenith, broke Kickstarter records earlier this month.
