Beta End: Wednesday, August 5th at 7:00PM CDT
Though we consider this our “Beta” launch, it differs from a traditional game Beta. As an ever-evolving online game, Hero Mages will not close down after our Beta period and leave our users to wait for a final release. Rather, we will be accepting commentary from our users on an on-going basis, constantly offering new features and building Hero Mages into a game that is truly loved by our community.
The two-week Beta period shall serve as a lead in to our debut at GenCon Indy, where we will be showcasing Hero Mages in the exhibition hall to over 20,000 gaming fans to share our creation and build our community. During this time we will be allowing registered Beta testers access to our premium content so that necessary gameplay and balances changes can be made prior to the opening of our in-game market place, which will take place shortly before GenCon.
At the close of the Beta period, normal game access privileges will resume, though we do plan to reward our top Beta participants with free premium content.
