MindArk expands Project Entropia beta test

An additional 500 players will be included in the beta test of the upcoming online role-playing game.


MindArk AB has announced that it has expanded the beta test of its upcoming online role-playing game, Project Entropia, to include an additional 500 players. The initial phase of the beta test launched in May with 50 testers, followed by a second phase in September that included 500 more testers.

Project Entropia is set in the virtual sci-fi world of Calypso. Players assume the role of colonists, and they can adventure in and explore the world while defending themselves against dangerous alien creatures and robots. The game uses an unusual business model in which the basic game and subscription will be free to players, and revenue will instead be generated through the sale of in-game items for real-world money.

For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game. To submit an application to participate in future beta tests of the game, visit the official Project Entropia Web site.
