Mechanist Games has eagerly awaited bringing the closed beta for City of Steam to the public. After a successful alpha testing in August the dates have been announced for their closed beta test. City of Steam will undergo a series of 5-day test phases which begin on November 16th, 2012.
The Schedule for the closed beta tests are as follows:
Springtide: Nov. 16th - 20th
Summercrest: Nov. 30th - Dec. 4th
Autumnwane: Dec. 14th - 18th
Winter Festival: Dec. 23rd - 28th
The developers are giving away beta collaborator packs as well, which include a number of in-game extras, such as character name reservation, beta access and social currency. Higher levels of these packs include much greater items such as personally designing an item in game, getting your name in-game as a city founder, and signed posters from the development team.
Mechanist Games has also set a series of goals for players to achieve by encouraging friends to support and spread the word on social networks. The Steam-o-meter will increase based on the amount of support and will increase open beta content when different levels are met.
