We have officially stopped support for the Closed Beta of Warrior Epic. It was a complete success in every respect and has given us all the tools we need to move forward with development on the game. The community has provided a truckload of feedback, bug reports, suggestions, and potential content. Overall, the response was very positive… especially considering the fact that it was a true “beta”. These days, development studios fear releasing a true beta to the public, even on an invite-only basis, primarily because of the potential for bad buzz and press. So, when they release a beta (even closed beta) to the current market, their beta is actually a near finished product.
We weighed our options, but being an independent developer forces you to use less conventional means to ensure quality in the finished product. For us, that involved establishing a strong community and actually letting you all participate in the development of our game. By doing so, we know exactly what our community wants from Warrior Epic and come hell or high water, we will deliver that to you.
Work on the Open Beta has continued without pause and is going strong. Brice will release new screenshots, movies, and news about the OB as it develops. People who currently have access to the Closed Beta will still be able to play, but updates and support (aside from the guides) will be unavailable until the release of the Open Beta.
