Phantagram Interactive has announced that it is now accepting applications to participate in the upcoming beta test of Shining Lore, its upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game. The beta test, which will consist of 20,000 players, will begin in July and run for approximately 60 days. Those interested in participating in the test can now sign up at the official Shining Lore Web site.
Shining Lore is set in a bright, colorful online fantasy world made up of six large continents. The game will feature hundreds of different spells, a wide variety of quests, and a number of minigames. Players will be able to engage in numerous activities, including fighting enemies, exploring the gameworld, chatting with other players' characters, creating clothing and armor, and decorating their homes.
Shining Lore is scheduled for release in North America later this year. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game. To find out more about current and upcoming beta tests, visit GameSpot's Beta Center.
