Otherland is an upcoming action MMORPG based on the bestselling novels by Tad Williams. Recently, Gamigo announced that a few select players will soon get their chance to test the first beta version of the new MMO. Beginning on the weekend of August 31 through to September 2, 2012 – testers will be set loose in to a playable version of the game, assisting the developers in continued development.
Florian Hörpel, Product Manager for Otherland says, “A small, manageable group of accounts will be given access to the servers for the first closed-beta weekend. This is because we want to get a feel for the limits of the systems.” Development is continuing and RealU has recently revealed a new simulation in Otherland, Five Isle. Representing the five elements, this eastern-themed zone will have players explore a once great island that has been torn apart.
