Otherland is entering closed beta today, Drago Entertainment has just announced. It’s not the first time that Otherland enters beta – the first time was way back in 2012, a few months before development ceased. Now Otherland is back into beta, just a couple of weeks after the announcement of the revival with the new developer, Polish studio Drago Entertainment.
The studio admits that players who received the closed beta key “will encounter server crashes, downtimes and bugs”. They also admit that this beta is “is focused on server crashes” so that the data will be used to “optimize the game and fix the issues”.
Sounds exactly like what a closed beta should be used for, instead of launching a bugged game with a cash shop and trying to take as much money as you can from unsuspecting players. So we wish them luck in this process and hopefully we’ll also be able to see how the game is shaping up to be, after such a troubled development.
You can still sign up for the closed beta at the official Otherland website.
