London – 20th December 2004 – Jolt Online Gaming, Europe's largest independent online gaming network, is pleased to announce that it has secured 100 beta-tester slots for the next Face of Mankind closed beta-testing phase. This is the last testing phase before an open beta begins sometime in 2005, and represents the final opportunity for hardcore testers to have such a direct impact on the game's development.
A sophisticated, story-rich online role-playing game set in the 24th century; Face of Mankind combines action and social elements to create a unique online experience where the battle of good and evil is depicted in shades of grey. Set in a living, breathing world full of complex interactions, players are required to call upon their real-life skills such as guile and diplomacy.
Jolt recently struck a deal to provide hosting and infrastructure to the MMORPG, which has been in development at Duplex Systems since 2001 and is due for a full release in 2005 courtesy of Ojom GmbH.
Interested parties have until 1st January 2005 to register their desire to be a part of this exclusive testing phase. After proving their knowledge of the game, 100 entrants will be selected at random to participate. The application form can be found here: http://www.jolt.co.uk/index.php?articleid=3065
