Hero Online open beta begins

Head east to escape the weather.

Those of you turned onto Eastern-flavoured MMORPG Hero Online by our first impressions last week can now take part in an open beta test.

It's happening all month (well, most of it - it ends on July 29th) and you'll be able to carry any characters you create over into the full game, too. MGame USA also tells us that they'll be putting on events throughout the month. In-game, obviously; not like a tombola.

All you need to do to take part is create an account on the Hero Online website and download the client - and you'll need to redownload it even if you've been taking part in the recent closed beta, although you can reuse your existing account.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
