“The closed beta is an invitation-only test of the upcoming science fiction MMORPG Stargate Worlds,” said publisher FireSky. “Invitations will be sent out this spring and summer as the Stargate Worlds team ramps up the numbers for testing.”
FireSky, a Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment company, announced on April 17 that they would be publishing the title. Stargate Worlds will contain a brand new story set between Seasons Eight and Nine, and will allow users to play human Stargate personnel, Jaffa, Goa’uld and Asgard.
“A game is nothing without players. We’re fired up to finally get our game in the hands of the community,” said Dan Elggren, Stargate Worlds studio head. “We’re at the point where we need external testers to take Stargate Worlds to the finish line. Our devoted fans have helped guide us for more than two years through our forums. Together, we’re going to craft a balanced, polished, and most of all, fun game.”
