In an announcement on the Funcom site, the company boasts a beta signup of 1.3 million potential players. This number is said to shatter “all previous company records including that of its previous MMO Age of Conan“.
This weekend’s event will be the third in a series of beta weekend events and will feature all three factions and their starting areas as well as the entire region known as The Savage Coast. There will also be two dungeons to explore: the derelict cargo ship “The Polaris” and “Hell Rising” on Solomon Island.
The event will open at 9am Pacific on Friday, June 15 and last until 11:59pm Sunday, June 17.
The company has one last bit of good news for players waiting on the game: TSW has gone GOLD and production of the physical units has also started. This means that unless something crazy happens, we will be seeing Early Access on June 29th and launch on July 3.
It will be interesting to see what — if any — significant changes have been made to the game since the last beta event.
For those who haven’t had a chance at a TSW beta event yet. There are a few sites giving away keys:
I will update the list as more are added.
