Gameforge and HEX Entertainment are opening up their MMO/TCG genre blend to a much bigger audience. The free-to-play game has moved to a public beta and all you have to do to play is sign up. Currently, the PvP content is already available as are a number of AI opponent battles, but the PvE portion of the title (the part I have been the most curious about myself) is still a bit of a mystery and is not included.
HEX currently offers a roster of 350 different cards and will soon be adding a new set that will bring the total to over 500 cards.
Cory Jones, Head of Development and CEO of HEX Entertainment had this to say when the public beta announcement was released:
“Due to high demand and the need for further testing by increasing player population on our servers, we felt the easiest way to accommodate this is by removing the restriction of having to have a beta key. This testing phase is also very important for us in the evolution of HEX and for our community. Together with Gameforge we’d also like to take the chance to thank all of the players who participated in closed beta. We really look forward to continue creating an even better gaming experience with all of our players.”
The public beta also adds an extensive tutorial (something VERY noticeably missing when I first accessed the game after backing HEX’s Kickstarter) and a vast array of UI improvements.
