Piranha Games president Russ Bullock revealed today that the open beta for Mech Warrior Online is finally live.
The game has been in closed beta for some time now and Bullock said that the company decided that the time was now right to go into open beta.
“The closed beta testers have done an amazing job, but many of you – including many founders – are just plain fatigued at having their data wiped. In fact according to our data we even have 10’s of thousands of Founders that are just waiting for Open Beta to play again so that their play time is not wasted. It is time for us to get into Open Beta and stop the data wipes,” said Bullock in a statement.
Bullock added that on Nov. 13, a patch will be released that will reset the premium time for all Founders (equaling two free weeks of premium time), including a button that “allows Founders the opportunity to choose exactly when to start their premium time.”
