'Spartan' - Beta Testers Needed

by Rainier on Sept. 9, 2003 @ 9:20 a.m. PDT

Spartan focuses on one of the most influential civilizations – the Ancient Greeks and allows players to choose from 100 nations to lead to victory, including Sparta, renowned for its dedication to the art of war and for producing the ultimate fighting machine – the Spartan Hoplite - most famous for the courageous last stand of 300 Spartans at the Battle of Thermopylae in 480BC.

Sometimes you'll be playing the same battle 20 times from a saved game to try and repeat a crash you saw before, other times you'll be click every button on
the UI in various ways to try and break it or checking that keys on the keyboard don't cause problems, especially in odd combinations, or reading through many messages looking for spelling mistakes & text overruns.

If you are still interested and think you could be part of the team that tests and balances Spartan and makes it fun for everyone else, then please apply! We are especially interested in getting people to test the multiplayer modes.

To apply to be a beta tester please download the application form and fill it in. Send the completed form to

The closing date for applications is the 26th September!
