Strategy First has announced that it is now accepting applications to help test O.R.B., its upcoming 3D real-time strategy game set in space. The game pits two races against each other in a battle to control the resources needed to expand their empires. Those interested in participating in the beta test, which will begin on April 8, can apply at the official O.R.B. Web site.

In the game, players control a space station and a number of different ship units that can be moved freely in three dimensions. It features a traditional real-time strategy combination of combat, resource management, and technology research, but the game also lets players take direct control of their units in combat. The game features two playable factions with 20 units each, and it includes a different single-player campaign for each faction. In addition, the game will come with a scenario editor that will let players create custom missions, campaigns, and cutscenes.

O.R.B. is scheduled for release this summer. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game.
