Testing times for Ensemble

Age of Mythology looking for volunteers

Microsoft and Ensemble are looking for a few good men (ten thousand, to be precise) to test their real-time strategy game Age of Mythology. The process is expected to start some time early next month, and would-be players are encouraged to sign up before the end of June for their chance of getting into the test group. If you're amongst the lucky chosen ones, you can expect to receive a shiny golden disc with a copy of the latest alpha build of the game burnt on to it, featuring two of the nine civilizations and four player online support.
