Start PWNing Other Worlds

Stargate Worlds Closed Beta Registration Now Open

I liked the movie. There were a few good episodes of the show. I actually enjoyed playing the Table Top RPG game based on the world. So I’m actually kind of excited about this new MMO. Not sure if it will be able to addict me to MMOs, but it will get my cash when it launches. Just as it will get my time if I am chosen for the Beta.

I say chosen just for the fact that the registration form doesn’t ask for anything more than your connection speed. So they can’t be selecting based on the performance of your gaming machine. But then again, it is the closed beta so they most likely are just running it to see if they got the basic flaws out before they go into stress tests and game performance issues. But who knows. They may require it after they make their decisions. In any instance, I registered. You should register and have a good time.

Below is the press release as well as a link to register to be selected for the Closed Beta.
