Since the Immortals USA open beta started sign ups, over 30,000 new accounts have been created to take part. During this time, we have seen a few bumps along the way and have improved server stability, various bug fixes and also a way to detect those who were cheating which will help level the playing field for all of our players.
?30,000 isn?t a huge number for an MMO? says Steve Wade, Vice President of New Game World, Inc. ?But we have done very little in the way of generating hype. Our first month of OB was actually pretty slow. Word of mouth in September really was more than anyone expected.?
Normally having such a large influx of new players to a small staff just blossoming in the MMO bubble leads to problems, but that has not been the case. Community Manager Tim Scheepers had this to say:
?Immortals USA has been great so far! I enjoy every minute of talking with the community, practicing my English, and watching our community foundation takes shape: supportive, energetic, and overall just a place you want to hang out. The community is getting very excited for Immortals to go live in October, and so are we!?
Everyone who registers for an account will be allowed to participate in the open beta of Immortals. In order to register for an account and download the game, players should visit http://www.immortalsusa.com.
We will continue to keep the service in open beta until the game is ready for commercial launch in late October.
