Smile WEBZEN Announces The First Closed Beta Test For Huxley

Great news everyone, we now have the confirmed date for the Huxley closed beta testing, here is what we found straight from Webzen:

Quote:
Global online entertainment company WEBZEN Inc. (WEBZEN - Global Digital Entertainment Leader) announced today the dates of the much-anticipated first closed beta test for Huxley¢â, the next-generation MMOFPS. The closed beta test will start on September 13.

One of the year¡¯s most anticipated titles, Huxley is the cutting-edge, next-generation MMOFPS, fusing traditional FPS with the quest and character growth system of the MMORPG. Being developed as a truly global game title for Webzen, Huxley has already been creating a sensation in the markets in Europe and North America with rave reviews and a $35 million deal with a Chinese publisher.

After 999 lucky beta testers are selected from the official Huxley website beginning on August 28, the closed beta test will take place from September 13 for five days. For the first time ever, testers will get a chance to experience the city where the characters live and breath. They will also be treated to a variety of play modes such as team death match and radar domination, as well as the core systems, including the quest, not seen before in standard FPS games.

¡°With Huxley¡¯s many innovative elements, gamers are in for a totally different experience,¡± said Nam-Ju Kim, chief executive officer of Webzen, Inc. ¡°Huxley is sure to challenge the existing genres with a new look and feel in multiple platforms. We¡¯re extremely confident that this title will set a new standard in MMOFPS.¡±

Meanwhile, Webzen has been conducting various testing and external network tests with a focus group since June to better gauge gamer preferences and evaluate the game¡¯s stability. The first closed beta test is a part of a planned series of user tests.

EDIT: The Huxley beta testing scheduled for the 13th of September is available to Korean players only!

This information is direct from Webzen.

Betas arent as good as all of you think they are... trust me... I have been many of them(closed and open) You will burn yourself out on the game and everything before the game even comes out. You will deal with all the bugs and all the issues that a pre launched game has and will hate the game to its core by the time your done. Not to mention many times (in a good beta) once the game came out, the publisher changed things around so much that I didnt like it very much after the game came out because I was used to the old ways. In an MMO beta you will go through all the troubles to level up your character and become attached to it, only to have it earased and you haveing to start over and do all the same things over again.

Dont get me wrong! This is AMAZING news for us! I have been waiting for 4 years now for this game and this means it is within around 6 months of launch! Its just that dont let the beta testing ruin this game for you because of your impatience. That is all.

and maybe they have a much bigger fan base in korea so it would make more sense to do it there.

So it's a bummer we can't beta test it yet. But at least we know the full version is well underway


It's pretty true about beta testing too, a lot of times I get turned away from games that I beta test because they turn out to be not what I expected. Then I later find that the game is much better than beta lead me to believe lol.

It would be nice to test Huxley but I'll be happy just waiting for the polished version to head my way

I'm not really holding out for any closed beta opportunities outside of Korea, unless they decide to test the North American servers in a closed (as opposed to massive open stress test) environment.

But it's not like there aren't half a dozen other worthwhile games coming out to play in the meantime.

is there any mention on how beta testers will be selected for example say you missed the original sign up for cod4 you can take quizes and stuff to help your chances in a day or two

my clan and i have been waiting for this game since 3 years ago but i dont mind waiting a bit longer.

(side note-small rumor i heard {again rumor} that you will be able to acess ventrillo through xbox360 version to talk with your xp/vista friends. help on this rumor would be great thanks.
