MMORTS Saga beta opens today


Here. Billed as the "world's first collectible online real-time strategy game", Saga is readying for a March 4 launch with an open beta which starts today.

The site says, "The exact time isn't nailed down yet, but we hope to have things up and running as soon as possible." Old skool. It's worth looking at if only for the really clever Flash dragon that flies past the navigation at the top. May as well give the game a go while you're at it.

SAGA Enters Open Beta

Silverlode Interactive opened its servers to all players for SAGA- the persistent world MMORTS.

Provo, UT – February 25, 2008

The World’s First Collectible MMORTS entered Open Beta testing on Tuesday, February 26th, 2008. All players who sign up at www.playsaga.com will receive accounts, allowing them to create nations on the Beta servers. For the duration of the Beta test, all game features will be unlocked and available to testers. At release, a full unlocked copy of SAGA will cost $19.95; however, promotions will be available during the open beta period to purchase the full version of SAGA at a reduced price.

During the stress test conducted on Saturday, February 23rd, the servers performed excellently, with no crashes or other server issues. The SAGA servers are expected to support up to 20,000 players per realm with thousands of simultaneous users. Should a greater-than-expected number of players attempt to login to the world at the same time, a login queue will be implemented and additional realms will be brought online.
