Train2Game students can now sign up to join the beta for Salem, the upcoming MMO from Seatribe and Paradox Interactive that’s set in the New World frontier.
One of the most interesting aspects of Salem is that the free-to-play MMO features a permadeath mechanic. The Salem beta begins soon and Train2Game students interested in taking part can sign up at http://beta.salemthegame.com/
“We’ve been getting Beta requests from gamers since we announced Salem and it’s great to finally be able to let people into the beta testing” saidSalem lead designer Björn Johannessen.
“We’ve chosen to keep the sign up completely open, the more the merrier, and will do our best to listen to all feedback we get.” he added.
Find out more about Salem in the developer diary below.
Beta testing is an excellent way for Train2Game students, especially those on the Games QA Tester course to practice their bug hunting skills. In a recent interview with The Train2Game Blog, Brawl Busters developers Rock Hippo told us that beta testing is “crucial” to the game development process.
So Train2Game, what are your thoughts on Salem and its permadeath? Will you be signing up for a place on the beta?
