ChangYou has officially announced the open beta date for their free-to-play Da Vinci-inspired Renaissance shooter. This game will be available for everyone starting January 22 and up until February 6.
The open beta will introduce two new characters, Bart (not Simpson) and Medici, who join the previous cast of four heroes. Two new maps will also be released: Castle Skyros and Atelier in Ruins, as well as a new game mode called Touch Dow. The final launch is slated for launch for late Q1, 2013. Good news for those who like to keep their characters, since there will be no data wipe after the open beta.
We played during the closed beta and enjoyed our time with this simple but fun shooter. Watch our Renaissance Heroes first look video below.
