Silverlode Interactive and Wahoo Studios today announced that they have completed alpha testing of Saga, their upcoming massively multiplayer real-time strategy game (MMORTS), and that an open beta test will begin on July 5, allowing players around the world to experience the unique strategy game before its Fall release. Players can go to www.playsaga.com now to sign up for the beta test.
Based in a world built by Dallan Christensen (Lead Programmer of Starcraft: Brood War), Saga puts players in the role of ruler as they create a powerful fantasy empire to conquer their foes in a persistent world that lives on even while players are offline. Free to play with no monthly subscription fees, Saga features an exciting collectible system that allows players to buy booster packs to enhance their armies with rare troops and abilities, or to enter the barter-driven market to trade units and resources with others from around the world. Players will need to prove their might by creating a massive army made up of humans, orcs, elves, mech giants, dragons and more to take into battle, where they must rely on their strategic cunning to overcome enemy forces. They will engage in espionage, sending assassins behind enemy lines to destabilize their forces, and ally themselves with other nations to partake in large-scale guild wars, earning experience to improve their troops, gain valuable resources, and to create an even larger army.
