Curse.com published an exclusive interview with Stargate Worlds PR Manager Kevin Balentine who confirmed a closed Beta this Summer:
With major franchise titles such as Star Trek Online and the speculation that Blizzard Entertainment may be working on a StarCraft MMO and BioWare may be working on a new Star Wars MMO, do you think that Stargate Worlds will be able to hold its own in the coming year? How will Stargate Worlds define itself from its main competitors?
Balentine: There's one obvious answer that sets us apart from other genre games, and that's the license. The fact is there aren't many games, and no other MMOs that I'm aware of, that feature the same mix of modern combat vs. science fiction weapons and humor. If you've watched Stargate, you'll recognize the elements that we have incorporated into the game and immediately feel like you've become the star of the show. If you haven't watched Stargate, you're going to experience an accessible MMORPG with a deep, tactical combat system and innovative non-combat game play featuring a variety of minigames and puzzles.
Will we be seeing a closed beta and if so, when can we expect to see it?
Balentine: Yes, we will have a closed beta, probably coming this summer followed by an open beta in the fall.
