Mechanist Games throws open the doors to its browser-based fantasy game.

The last time we heard about City of Steam, it was headed for a closed beta in the beginning of this month. However, in a press release sent this morning, Mechanist Games announced that starting at 10 p.m. EST tonight, the browser-based steampunk fantasy MMORPG will begin an open beta. For anyone still waiting on a beta invite for Infinite Crisis (ahem, me), this is a stellar consolation prize.

City of Steam takes place in a world dependent upon technology made by an ancient extinct race. Utilizing these technologies, multiple races and nations have emerged to struggle against one another. As a steampunk video game, the setup is about as good as it gets, and tonight everyone will be able to see how well it is realized.

The open beta includes a grip of new features, including a level cap of 25, 80+ dungeons, 100+ quests, defense events, PVP maps, customizable armor and weapons, energy systems, pets, jetpacks, and Steambikes. Yes, you read that correctly; jetpacks and Steambikes. It's like a coal-powered Christmas.

City of Steam is a browser-based, free-to-play, online RPG set in an industrial fantasy world with steampunk elements. This is the World Machine, a vast and ancient system of interlocking gears powered by unfathomable energies. Long ago, a race of ingenious conquerors called the Paragons sought to control those energies, but destroyed themselves in the attempt. They left behind a shattered world and a complex legacy, and even now, millennia later, that legacy continues to affect the course of history on the World Machine. Four great human nations have emerged since the fall of the Paragons: The confederated city-state of the Heartlands, the allied kingdoms of Ostenia, the patriarchal Republic of Avenoss, and the harsh Empire of Stoigmar. At the site of the Paragons' fall lies the City-State of Nexus, a once-great industrial metropolis where players will arrive as refugees, ready to carve out a new life.
