Free time is over! It's almost time to start paying for that playing.
In a press release, Codemasters has this to say.
The beta period draws to an end... - Michael 'Zzeno' Rowland (Community Liaison Manager)
A message for the beta testers:
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your hard work and dedication thus far.
The beta period has had its ups and its downs but in our opinion it has been a huge success in helping us
find and resolve crucial issues. With those issues fixed and with a couple minor gameplay issues being worked on, we are very confident that we are ready for the retail launch.
It is with this in mind that I have to make the following announcement about the closed beta. Thanks to the help of the community, the resolve of the dev team and the demands of you the customer, we will be closing the beta servers down and preparing for the launch of the full retail version of RF Online. Servers will be wiped, cleaned up and installed with the latest RF Online client and fixes.
Following up on today's beta announcement we will also be hearing from the games Producer, Simon Humphries, on what we have learned from the month long beta plus what we foresee in regard to updates for RF Online.
Please keep an eye on the news section for more details on the launch dates for RF Online across Europe and in the US.
So.. keep your eyes open. We'll have news on when this baby is going to launch.
