Champions Online Entering Closed Beta

Champions OnlineChampions Online is taking applications for its closed beta that starts in mid-November.

Cryptic Studios™ announced today that players can now sign up for a chance to participate in the first closed beta for Champions Online™, an action massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) slated for release in the spring of 2009. This PC specific beta begins in mid-November 2008 and players sign up by visiting http://www.champions-online.com/preview_application.
“This closed beta is an exciting step in the evolution of Champions Online,” said Jack Emmert, chief creative officer for Cryptic Studios. “All of us here in the Cryptic offices have been playing the game for a while now, and we’re excited to invite others in to have as much fun with Champions Online as we’ve been having internally.”

Excellent to see this progressing nicely toward a Spring 2009 release. Gives me just enough time to log another thousand hours or so in World of Warcraft before this thing comes out.

  1. I am *totally* signing up for this. PC only is pretty weak but it at least limits me playing to when my better half is not up.

    I’ve been a Champions dork since I started playing it in college. I think I still have the goofy three book original edition of that thing.

  2. I never really played it much, but I remember being awestruck at 14 when I finally got my hands on a copy of the 2nd edition that came out in 1982. I always tended to buy RPGs and then use the rules to build things rather than actually play the damn things, and the pre-GURPS point-based system really lended itself to that.

    I’m really looking forward to the game, though its also being released simultaneously on the XBOX360 which I’ll probably be playing it on (I find when I start playing games like WOW on my computer, I never take them seriously as productivity tools afterward).
