First Beta Weekend for Unreal Engine 3 powered ‘Otherland’ Begins This Friday

RealU and gamigo have announced the first beta weekend for their Unreal Engine 3 powered MMORPG, Otherland. On the weekend of 31.08.-02.09.2012, a chosen few players will get the first chance to test the beta version of the game.
According to the companies, the state-of-the-art technology of the Unreal Engine 3 allows the action-packed MMORPG to have visually dazzling landscapes, highly-detailed character models and top-notch effects.
Florian Hörpel, Product Manager for Otherland said:
“A small, manageable group of accounts will be given access to the servers for the first closed-beta weekend. This is because we want to get a feel for the limits of the systems.”
In the meantime, the development of Otherland is coming along in leaps and bounds. A short while ago an additional simulation, called Five Isle, was presented which is based on the five Chinese elements. Tad Williams, bestselling author of the Otherland novels, makes his first appearance in the video and talks about his vision of Otherland and the enormous freedom offered by the game.
