Tabula Rasa nearly finished

Closed beta under way.

NCsoft has revealed that a closed beta test for Tabula Rasa is under way.

It marks the game's final development stages ahead of its expected launch on PC this autumn.

Tabula Rasa is in development at Destination Games, run by Ultima Online creator Richard Garriott. It's an online adventure that will try to blend the fast-paced action of first-person shooters with the traditional fantasy-values of MMOs.

"This is an exciting time for the Tabula Rasa team," said Garriot. "With closed beta testing now in progress, we're excited to hear more what our players think."

"With fast-action and tactical combat in an RPG setting, a deep and interesting fictional universe, and many feature innovations, we think we've created a game that represents the next generation of MMO games and will revolutionize the way people play online games."

You can find more information on the official Tabula Rasa website - or you can catch up on some more of Garriott's views in a recent interview with
