Bigpoint announced that The Mummy Online has begun accepting registrations for its closed beta period. Developed in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, The Mummy Online is a breakthrough, action-adventure RPG that delivers high-end gameplay through an engaging story inspired by the film franchise.

Participants interested in joining The Mummy Online’s exclusive closed beta can register for access at http://themummy.bigpoint.com/.  Once in-game, players will fight their way through a single-player tutorial level before selecting their allegiance (Raider or Cultist) and class (Gunslinger/Assassin, Brawler/Enforcer, or Scholar/Priest).  As players gain experience through both PvE and PvP gameplay, they will be able to learn new skills, unravel special capabilities, and purchase more powerful equipment.

Based on the existing terrain of Egypt, players can explore the map of Amarna with several PvE regions that include the Dunes, River, Maze, and Rocky Fields.  Here, players will confront a range of monsters, including several types of scarabs, scorpions, pygmies, Anubis warriors, and mummies.  Within the PvP areas of the Tomb, Oasis, and Ruins, players can battle against players of opposing allegiances and capture ancient obelisks to dominate the playing field.

With the closed beta expected to last several weeks, Bigpoint will unlock player accounts in waves to ensure game stability and performance.  At the conclusion of the closed beta period, Bigpoint will review all feedback, optimize virtually every aspect of the game, and ready The Mummy Online for the official open beta launch.

Players are encouraged to follow the closed beta’s progress and provide input through the community forum: http://en.board.bigpoint.com/mummy/. Bigpoint also publishes Drakensang Online and Battlestar Galactica Online among other games.

    This game is just Drakensang Online with a Mummy movie theme. In the end another crappy game from BigPoint.

    I’ve had bad experiences with bigpoint. Their games aren’t that good and they are sooooooo money oriented it is ridiculous. People spending money on the game get things that would take an average player HOURS to obtain. Well that is just my experience, don’t kill me if you are a big big point fan.

    Bigpoint getting another IP based off of a successful movie, not a big surprise..

    I’m starting to lose interest in their new games.

    This actually looks pretty good… but could be a flop, will check it out regardless I guess.
