'Xpand Rally' - Final Beta Stage Started

by Rainier on July 2, 2004 @ 8:38 a.m. PDT

Pawel Zawodny, the project manager of Xpand Rally, says: “We are satisfied with the final result we achieved. We realized all guidelines that we created when we resumed the development of this game at the end of last year. It is very important to us that through the first phase of beta tests we received a lot of constructive comments regarding individual solutions. As a matter of fact, to consider all of the opinions and incorporate the good ones we had to push the release date for September, but thanks to that we are sure that the best racing game of this year will hit the market.”

The second phase of beta tests will not be dedicated (as planned) to the career mode. Grzegorz Swistowski, the lead programmer, comments on the change of plans: “In this phase of tests we decided to focus on the multiplayer mode, as one of the most important aspects of the game and also on controllers’ compatibility tests. We will get back to the career mode in the final, third phase of the tests, which will take place in 3 weeks and will be carried simultaneously with the second phase for about 2 weeks.”

The second phase launches on Monday. All official beta testers received invitations to the next phase and those that replied will be able to download the new version for testing from Techland’s server. Just as during the last phase a closed forum for beta testers will be enabled and a bug tracking system will be made available to them. Beta testers – start you engines!
