Berlin, 19.12.2011: The first closed beta test for ELIGIUM- The Chosen One, the newest MMORPG from Frogster, begins today at 16:00 CET. Players fortunate enough to get their hands on one of the limited beta keys can start their adventure today - a little present before Christmas.
Pandaring to the Masses
The closed beta will run until the 18th January 2012. During that time players will be able to sample a selection of ELIGIUM?s many features and raise one of three selectable races to level 45, the level cap for the closed beta. Players who are waiting to follow the path of the brave Panda will have to practice the art of patience and await the second phase of beta testing where the Panda will make its glorious entrance. Knowing the Panda, this will be hard to miss.
To accompany the launch of the closed beta Frogster has also prepared a special ELIGIUM presentation video which gives players a run through of the game?s key features, such as the skills and virtues, to help players get to grips with their new world.
