'Allods Online' Will Go Open Beta Next Week

by Rainier on Feb. 9, 2010 @ 4:25 a.m. PST

Allods Online is a subscription-less MMORPG set in a fantasy space opera universe with player-built and player-controlled astral battleships, creating a new dimension of co-op game play. Join one of 2 factions at war in the deep storyline by choosing from one of the 28 classes available, and level up by completing over 1500 quests at launch and confronting over 300 unique creatures.

The Open Beta Test will go live on February 16th and will allow players access to the entire game. All players are welcome to join the world of Allods, and there will be no restrictions to join!

Allods Online is a revolutionary sci-fi fantasy MMORPG developed by Astrum Nival, creators of Heroes of Might & Magic V, with a budget of $12 million and four years in development. Astrum Nival is owned by Mail.Ru, the leading online gaming publisher in Russia. Two warring factions, League and Empire, vie for control of allods—islands floating in Astral space. The truly unique aspect of Allods Online is the Astral ship system. Players can create their own ships, crewed by entire parties where each player has a distinct role, from navigator and helmsman to engineer and gunner. From their astral ship, players can navigate the randomly generated astral space where they can explore uncharted allods, fight massive Astral demons, and engage in Astral piracy on unwary fellow travelers. The game features an unprecedented amount of content for a free-to-play MMORPG: 2 factions, 6 races, 8 archetypes, 28 classes, and over 2,000 quests. The production values are top-notch with full motion-capture animation, top award-wining artists, and a soundtrack by Mark Morgan, composer for the hit TV-series Dexter, Fallout & Fallout 2, and Planescape: Torment.

“Allods Online had a phenomenal response from users across all of our closed beta tests! The positive feedback has been overwhelming, from hundreds of press articles and blog posts, to tens of thousands of emails and forum comments. Players have been raving about every aspect of the game experience, from astral ships and exploration, to the wonderfully detailed steampunk atmosphere. Most importantly, however, we’ve had countless players tell us that Allods has demolished the standard for quality in a microtransactional game. With our open beta, we welcome all newcomers to discover the Allods universe, as they journey from the planet of Sarnaut to the farthest reaches of Astral space.” - Patrick Paik, Marketing Manager, Gala-Net, Inc.

Information about the fourth phase of testing, which opens access to Astral ships, will be soon released at the official European Allods Online website.
