Players who joined in the Phase 1 Beta test will be the first to gain entry; others will be admitted on a first-come first-served basis. In addition, Silverlode Interactive is working with game and hobby shops across the U.S. and game review websites worldwide to distribute Beta keys good for priority entry into Beta.
Saga Beta 2 will release many anxiously awaited features over the course of the phase.
Here’s a few: The initial screens and user interface have been improved and completely rebuilt in an easy and intuitive format. A brand new storyline-based quest system has been added that includes epic boss battles for multiplayer strategy. The chat system has been renovated to enhance trading and guild communication. A tournament system will be introduced later in Beta 2 that allows players to win products as well as increase their ranking. In addition, Saga received a major graphics overhaul making the visuals spectacular.
Players are currently invited to sign up at the official Saga website.
Saga is a persistent world RTS in an epic fantasy setting.

Saga’s features include massive armies, multiplayer questing, an auction house for trading troops and spells, guild wars and espionage.
Saga’s features include military questing, an auction house for trading troops and spells, guild wars, espionage, and more. Kingdoms and armies gain permanent experience that carries forward perpetually for a more realistic and more exciting RTS experience.
Additionally, Saga brings the excitement of collectible gaming to the online environment. Rather than pay subscription fees, in Saga you pay as little or as much as you decide. Just as in collectible card or miniatures games, players can buy ‘booster packs’ of random troops and spells, which are traded and customized to create the strategic army of choice for each player.

Saga is set in a persistent world built by Dallan Christensen (Lead Programmer of Starcraft: Brood War). Events in the world of Saga go on 24/7 as your kingdom continues to function when you’re offline- your resources continue collecting, your kingdom continues to defend against enemy assassins and espionage attempts, and guild wars progress as your friends and enemies play.
Saga’s features include:
- Five distinct factions (Light, Machines, Magic, Nature, and War); each with its own races, powers and buildings.
- Over 100 unique troop types, plus thousands of possible armor and weapon upgrades.
- Over 100 buildings
- Spells and special abilities to turn the tide of battles and impact game play
- Quest and campaign across the land to earn experience and win treasure to enhance your kingdom.
- Form guilds of online allies; then join forces in war against other guilds for fortune and glory.
