Closed beta begins for Garriott MMO

Tabula Rasa enters the development home straight

Ncsoft has said that closed beta testing is beginning for Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa.

"This is an exciting time for the Tabula Rasa team," says Garriott, executive producer. "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."

The PC MMO features an epic sci-fi story where players are challenged by adventures taking place on alien worlds. Garriott is famed for his work on the Ultima series.
