Champions Online open beta in August

Ahead of early September release.

Fansite Champions Online Daily News reports that Crytpic's superhero MMO will go into open beta testing in mid-August.

The site picked up the info on a visit to Cryptic HQ, and the developer subsequently put the stamp of authority on the news with an official link.

"A firm date has been pencilled in and although it's not 100 per cent confirmed, it is slap bang in the middle of August," said the fansite.

That would put it a couple of weeks ahead of the game's launch on PC, on September 1st in North America and September 4th in Europe. An Xbox 360 launch is currently scheduled for later in the year.

Champions Online is currently in closed beta testing. Check out the Champions Online gamepage for hands-on impressions and more.
