ChangYou have just announced the official launch date for the eagerly awaited open beta for their uniquely themed MMOFPS title, Renaissance Heroes. The beta testing will begin on January 22nd and will run through until February 6th; accompanied by a variety of new updates and content over the 2 week period.
The beta will introduce a variety of new elements to the game, including characters and maps, and will also see the introduction of the European server. Daily events and prizes will be available throughout the event; both in-game and on the official Facebook page.
“We are ready to kick off 2013 with some awesome new content and events,” said Matthew Lenehan, Producer at ChangYou.com (US), Inc. “This beta launch will have no data wipe, enabling players to get a head start before the game hits commercial launch in late Q1, 2013. With the benefit of early access, players that register by 12:00 PM (PDT) on January 22nd will receive a Founder’s Pack that includes a character costume, power-ups, an exclusive banner, and a new weapon!”
The highlight of the in-game events includes daily rewards for players that log in on a regular basis. If they’re able to complete a single match each day they will be entered into prize drawing for some amazing prizes; including a Razer Blade gaming laptop and a GeForce GTX660 video card
