ET: Quake Wars Beta Drawing Near
The Enemy Territory: Quake Wars community website has news that the public beta is coming very soon. While they don’t give any exact dates, they do mention that it will be limited to 60,000 slots, and they give a few details, such as:
“The Public Beta build will consist of a single map named “Sewer”, which is part of ETQW’s Pacific Campaign. Set in Japan, the map revolves around a Strogg base hidden in, well, a sewer. It’s an interesting mix of outdoor and indoor, vehicle and infantry combat, deployables and counter-deployables and good old-fashioned FPS combat.
If you’d like to help us finish ETQW, we’d really appreciate your participation. If you want to just play a game for free you may find it a frustrating experience. This Public Beta is not the Demo – it’s not the finished game, but an opportunity to get feedback from a large group of people while testing stability and performance on a wider range of hardware combinations. The Public Beta will also collect some information on your hardware configuration, so you shouldn’t apply unless you’re comfortable with that.”
Now, I don’t know about the rest of you guys, but ever since I gave up on BF 2 for abandoning everything they had right about infantry combat in BF:V, this is the game I’ve been waiting on. I can’t wait to get my hands on it. See you in the beta line!
