Stardock and Gas Powered Games will start testing the persistent online multiplayer in Demigod next week.
Beta 3 runs from 19th February. Sign-ups will end a week after that date.
The specific area of focus will be the Pantheon: a persistent universe charting the war between the Forces of Light and the Forces of Darkness. Developer Gas Powered Games wants this feature to run for "years to come".
Beta 3 will also iron out more bugs and tweak various balance issues that are key to a multiplayer-focused RTS such as Demigod.
Stardock and Gas Powered Games aim to launch Demigod exclusively for PC this year.
