Beyond Protocol Pre-orders at Gencon Indy

I posted before about my involvement with the “Beyond Protocol” MMORTS beta test. For those not familiar with this game, it is an empire building/real-time strategy game in a sci-fi setting.  I got a press release from “Dark Sky Entertainment ” about what they will have on offer at Gen Con2008 and thought it worth posting.

I will not repost the press release, but here are the highlights.

  • Preorders will be taken at the booth.  Game/subscription prices were not in the press release. I am following up with DSE and will post an update when I hear back.

Update: The price for the pre-order is $49.95 and the montly subscription is $12.00.

  • A free month of game play
  • Free T-Shirt with preorder
  • Immediate access to the closed beta with a preorder
  • Start playing 24 hours before official launch.
  • A special hull (ship design) that only preordering players can access.

As for a release date, there is nothing on the site. I did notice this line in the press release.

“This may very well be the last convention before the release of the game…”

I am assuming they are talking about “major” game conventions, which implies that  the release will be this year. This is strictly my own speculation, so take it was a large grain of salt.
