I just got a subscriber email from Fileplanet, telling me to sign up for the Huxley closed beta. I’m really psyched about this game, with its post-apocalyptic setting and all. And of course, the visuals are AWESOME.
I got into the beta through my Fileplanet subscription. I downloaded and installed the client, but didn’t play last night. The beta is focused solely on small scale PvP, so none of the PvE elements are in. I expect at this point it plays somewhat like any other arena based shooter, but we’ll see.
My bad then. I was going by what the beta website said the beta actually contained. I swear it said the beta was limited to small scale PvP. If it has some PvE content then heck, I’m actually interested in trying it out.
So this is now a free to play PC only twitch game supported by microtransactions? Sounds like an FPS Guild Wars that dings your wallet for all the good loot and instances you with 100-odd people at a time. Bizarre.
I can’t see the word ‘Huxley’ without thinking of the Cosby show - even though I know their last name was Huxtable, not Huxley. It’s tough to maintain a sense of post-apocalyptic dread when I keep seeing Bill’s happy dad face.
Agreed. And I don’t think I am hurting the NDA by saying this but, it just looks pretty bleak in the sense that it’s been nearly a week and the new set of testers can’t get into the beta forums, because nobody will approve them. And naturally any public posts is deleted. Thus, nobody can get help or share their problems.
This is all on their main boards, with a lot of people complaining they can’t get issues fixed if nobody will give them forum access. I completely understand people can be busy at times, but without allowing the second set of cbt testers to communicate, I can only fear where this game is going.
