Ryzom Ring Alpha Starting

Posted by Jon Wood on Nov 02, 2005  | Comments

Ryzom Ring Alpha Starting -

The developers of The Saga of Ryzom have announced that their new expansion, The Ryzom Ring, is ready to begin its Alpha testing phase. At the moment, only 50 players have been chosen to take part, but as time goes by, more testers will be added.

The Ryzom Ring, the upcoming expansion which will allow you to create your own events and scenarios within the game, is now approaching the alpha stage.

Soon, a first version will be released for the first pass of tests and debug; this version won't be feature complete, the goal being to fix bugs and start getting your feedback. We have selected about 50 of you for the phase 1 of the alpha test, based on displayed interest and skills - if you have been selected, you will receive an email in the next 7 days (be sure to check that the address recorded in the billing system)...

Since the first team needs to be small and focused, we couldn't include everyone we wished - but don't worry, we will progressively ramp up the number of alpha testers as we move forward, and an application form will be available.

Also, during the alpha test (and later during the beta test), I will dedicate a good deal of my time to the Ring alpha testers, ensuring communication between them and the Ring dev team. As a result, Marjo - whom you have probably noticed since she's writing the Forum Watch news - will temporarily take over some of my current duties, such as writing the news and articles on She'll also join the boards and start posting there. You should start to see her around as soon as today. :)

Note: as usual during a game alpha or beta-test, testers will be bound to a non-disclosure agreement (to prevent concepts from being leaked and to avoid giving a wrong impression of the game to the general public), so please don't harass them with questions - they won't be able to answer you. Don't worry though, I'll stay around to make sure you get updates when we reach important milestones.
