The Steampunk inspired MMORPG City of Steam is set to begin yet another round of beta testing in a few hours (7:00 PST), which will hopefully lead to the game’s full open beta later this month. Some of the highlighted additions to the beta include: new Arena and Tesla Defense events, a tweaked user interface, new animations, performance increases, bug fixes, “cancelable” attacks, and the overall streamlining of crafting, skill and talent systems.
There is also mention of being able to jump now, always an important addition to any game. I mean, where would we be without our MMO parkour?
As we previously mentioned, to allow for more focused testing of content the developers plan on releasing only a handful of the overall race and class choices available in the game to start, with the rest being added throughout the beta. In addition to what was already promised, Mechanist Games intends to realise an aggressive release schedule that will see new features and content added to the game on an almost bi-weekly basis. This includes a new hub called The Vault as well as an additional suburb zone.
More details regarding the game’s content release schedule are said to be coming later today. If you’d like to read more regarding the beta updates you can check out the official post here.
