BETA BETA BETA!

It’s out! BETA IS HERE! The official press release on the Pirate101 website was just released today! I’m soooooooo happy! Thank you KingsIsle for finally doing this! 🙂 The only bad thing is, that I can’t post images, even if I get in. I think I can tell you, but I’m not sure. Time will tell. The press release is here, or below.

PLANO, TEXAS (August 3rd, 2012) – Avast me hearties! KingsIsle Entertainment is pleased to announce the Beta for Pirate101 is officially underway. The first round of Beta invitation emails has gone out to testers, and a variety of additional Beta key giveaways are planned over the next several weeks.

“The start of our closed Beta testing marks a massive step forward for Pirate101,” said J. Todd Coleman, vice president and creative director at KingsIsle Entertainment. “Design, art, technology, story—our teams have worked tirelessly to craft this fantastic new online experience for families. I cannot wait for our testers to get in and experience the new world we have created for them.”

In Pirate101, players take the helm of their very own pirate ship as they pursue an epic storyline of grand swashbuckling adventure. Intended to entertain a broad and cross-generational family audience, Pirate101 is accessible and simple to play for casual gamers, yet simultaneously offers systems with great depth and complexity for more sophisticated audiences.

Access to Beta:
Pirate101 is currently in closed Beta testing and will launch later this year. To be considered for closed Beta access, please sign up at http://www.pirate101.com. As part of KingsIsle’s partnership with AMD’s Gaming Evolved program, AMD will be giving away a limited number of Pirate101 Beta keys. More information about this exclusive chance at early Beta access is available at blogs.amd.com/play/2012/08/03/pirate101. Finally, ongoing updates regarding Beta access promotions can be found at http://www.pirate101.com/free_game/closed_beta_keys.

Also, a few new images have been released on J Todd Coleman’s and Pirate101 Central’s Facebook pages. Voila!

Zeke’s in Pirate101 too! Yay! I’ll have to see if I get into beta… That’s all for this week! Since beta is out, I may be posting more with updates from around the Spiral or around the Internet. 😛
