Long-awaited massively multiplayer FPS Huxley has opened registration for a public beta test.
The test is a brief 10-day affair, scheduled to take place between the 3rd and 14th of June. You can sign up at the Huxley website.
Huxley has been in open beta for a while in its native Korea, where it's being developed by Webzen. The North American and European rights are owned by NHN, which will run the game through its ijji.com portal.
Now that Darkfall Online is actually out (albeit still somewhat elusive), the mantle of world's most delayed MMO must pass to the Korean massively multiplayer FPS, Huxley.
According to IGN, Huxley is still on course for a Korean and US release this year, but the Xbox 360 version that was intended to follow it by about 6 months is "up in the air".
Publisher NHN says it only picked up the North American rights to the PC version, although it's "possible" that a console version will follow if it sells well.
Big Download has learned that Webzen's mysterious massively multiplayer sci-fi FPS, Huxley, has been delayed into 2009 in the US.
NHN USA has picked up the US and (Western) European publishing rights to Huxley.
Webzen has confirmed that much-delayed massively multiplayer FPS Huxley will be released in the US in late 2008 on PC. The Xbox 360 will follow around six months later.
A new trailer for Huxley, Webzen's forthcoming PC and Xbox 360 title, is now available on Eurofiles.
Huxley is a massively multiplayer first-person shooter loosely based on classic sci-fi novel Brave New World. It's set in a post-apocalyptic universe where the human race has become divided into three genetically-mutated factions - the Sapiens, the Alternatives and the Hybrids - all battling for control of planet Earth.
The game is being built using the Unreal 3 Engine and will allow for up to a hundred battles to take place at the same time, with each server supporting 5000 players.
