Valve have given us a heads up that from now through until Friday of this week, you can grab and join in on a beta for Darkspore
ahead of the game's [delayed] release.
Also, Steam announces an exclusive pre-purchase offer: a four-pack of Darkspore for the price of three. So grab some friends and join the sci-fi universe of Darkspore, a fast-paced new online Action-RPG from Maxis and Electronic Arts in which you battle across alien worlds with your customized squads of heroes.
That's not a great deal of time to get into a beta, but if you're looking for something to pass the time, head on over to Steam and pick it up. Be sure and let us know you're thoughts on it too.
