Jumpgate beta sign-ups begin

Early chance to try the space combat MMO.

Codemasters Online has opened registration for the beta test for its upcoming space combat MMO, Jumpgate: Evolution.

You can sign up, and check out the new community portal, at theofficial website.

Jumpgate: Evolution is developer NetDevil's sequel to its cult 2001 space MMO, Jumpgate: The Reconstruction Initiative. It's a more fast-paced, action-oriented take on massively multiplayer space piloting than its Icelandic counterpart, EVE Online. Codemasters representatives like to mention the classic Elite a lot when discussing it, and who can blame them.

We played it a few months back, thought it looked pretty slick, and were astonished to discover that it was being made by a team of just ten people.

Check out the Jumpgate gamepage for the latest shots, video and information.
