Danish studio Runestone Game Development announced today that its upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game Seed is shaping up for an April release. To prepare for the launch, players will be able to sign up for the beta-testing period at the game's official Web site starting January 9. The beta period is set to begin February 1.
A departure from standard MMORPGs, Seed has eliminated combat from the player experience entirely. Set in the far future on a distant planet, players will have to work together to shape the gameworld as they see fit.
