You can stop holding your breath North America. The Chronicles of Spellborn is finally on its way. While the European version of the game has been running for a few months, Acclaim has been holding fast on the game, waiting for a number of unknowns to come to fruition. Now the game is entering closed beta and the servers are opening at a breakneck pace.
Los Angeles, CA (March 13, 2009) – Acclaim Games releases the official game client for download in anticipation of the release for The Chronicles of Spellborn MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). Players anxious to join the game can begin downloading and installing the game on their PC now, so they will be completely ready to play once the game is available.
The first players that will have access to the Closed Beta are handpicked from the Acclaim chats, David Perry’s twitter and Historian’s beta tester list. This first group of players has been limited to 200–500 players to allow thorough game testing. After the first group of players test the game Acclaim will start activating 1,000 new accounts every 12 hours starting on Friday March 13, 2009. Acclaim will activate accounts until they feel the servers are at capacity for the Closed Beta. The first player accounts to be activated will be players that have Acclaim Memberships and then at random from Acclaim’s user base.
Starting March 13th, 2009 check your Acclaim ‘Account Summary’ to see if you have Closed Beta access: http://www.acclaim.com/myaccount.htm it will say ‘Spellborn Status Active’. If your account is ACTIVE launch the game client and login.
The Closed Beta will be available for a limited time and Acclaim hasn’t decided if they will refresh player accounts once the game transitions into Open Beta. During the Closed Beta premium subscriptions will not be available for purchase.
