This upcoming weekend, August 31st – September 2nd 2012, will be an opportunity for players to access a chance to play the beta version of Otherland.

Being published by gamigo, Otherland is adapted from the science fiction/cyberpunk novels of Tad Williams. Transporting players into a virtual reality, Otherland envelopes players in an action-packed MMORPG. Travel to different areas, all with their own themes ranging from science fiction to Chinese-inspired societies.

In traditional RPG-style, players can go on quests, although Otherland is promising to balance socializing and battling, and to eliminate the mindless grind that seems so popular in today’s MMORPGs. Is Otherland’s closed beta weekend something that interest you? Lets us know! To learn more about Otherland and to sign up for the closed beta, head over to for more information.

    From older game trailers in 2011 to 2012, This is what I get from watching them. Its like Playstation Home meets Accel World (if you’ve watched the Anime series). I won’t quote what they say about the game-play till Beta, but this game catches my interest…

    I have zero idea what to think about this game. It’s all over the place, i will just have to wait and see.

    And it’s not available in Croatia, i hope that changes in the future.

      I’m in EU and I don’t have access to the game, so I’m not sure if this is right.
