Additionally, a closed beta "preview" weekend just ended, which was available to previous beta testers and pre-order customers.

The next closed beta event begins on Thursday, July 2nd, and will be available to this same group. An open beta is expected closer to release data, followed by a wipe of all character data prior to launch. The game is currently projected to launch mid September, so there is some time to wait yet.

For anyone considering downloading the game client for early beta access, keep in mind that it is approximately ~6GB in size, and download speeds during the actual events tend to be slow - you are better off getting the client early in preparation, rather then spending half of the allotted playtime staring at a 30 KB/s progress box.

my god making it exclusive to EB is so gay, I make it my business to never purchase games from there so I'm out!

Longdong played the beta and was talking it up.

In saying that Longdong has played pretty much every mmo ever released including such weak titles as world war 2 online. But he said it was massively pretty and enjoyable at least at low level.
