'Ryzom Ring' Alpha Test Starts Today

by Rainier on Nov. 15, 2005 @ 8:15 a.m. PST

The Saga of Ryzom developer Nevrax announced today it has launched the alpha test of Ryzom Ring, its first expansion, offerting a complete set of simple and supple tools to design and implement adventures and maps, empowering them to imagine, create, launch, share and enjoy an almost infinite combination of online scenarios.

The Ryzom Ring is the innovative extension for Nevrax's online roleplaying game, The Saga of Ryzom. It provides tools that allow the players to access Ryzom's creatures, buildings, maps and missions to create their own events and scenarios, giving them unprecedented power to shape the game. Thousands of other players can experience one person's handiwork, or kept as a private sanctuary only accessible to a select few.

Beginning with about 50 players, new players will be continually added to the testing team until early 2006, when the Ring will enter it's bêta phase and will welcome all of The Saga of Ryzom's paying customers into the testing phase. Also in Q1 2006, there will be further open bêta and load testing before the Ring's official launch by the end of the 1st quarter.

In the meantime, a new website is currently being created at URL, which will inform all players and testers of the status of the Ring Test, and which will also soon contain new communication and monitoring tools for all the testers and our future "creators".

"Ryzom Ring is an extremely powerful extension pack," says Daniel MILLER, CTO and Executive Producer of the Ring. "The opportunity is finally given to the players to become not only players, but creators." Miller added, "Ryzom's future is from now on in the hands of players."
