My.com’s latest endeavor, Revelation Online, went into closed beta this week in the US and Europe. If you signed up, and were lucky enough to be chosen, then you can head on over to the official site to download the game.
My.com has also identified some of the issues players can expect to face when playing the game. Don’t be surprised if you run into some minor localization issues, like Chinese and Russian text where there shouldn’t be – who knows, maybe Klingon, too. On the other end of the spectrum, we have stability concerns, such as the game shutting down randomly and the framerate not being quite where My.com would like it.
But, of course, this is beta, and those are beta-licious concerns.
Oh, and there are queues, which one might take as proof that the game isn’t completely dead. Or so it might seem. The display shown while in queue is buggy and actually cuts off your position in queue, so it’s unclear whether you’re 10th in place, or 1000th.
Of course, as the beta progresses, one would expect all these issue and more to be ironed out.
Just have to be patient.
