Another day, another update!
We have been constantly improving on Beta 1.2 and having playtests regularly to ensure that the build is not only stable, but as much fun as it can possibly be.
This last weekend we had invited various media outlets. We invited them to simply play the game and if they would like to write a hands-on preview we would supply some exclusive media for them. It appears most of them are writing hands on preview and it appears there was a hell of a lot of media that was taken from these events and there is too much of it so we are going to share it all with you.
We are going to have a game session with Podcast 17 later this week. As most of you remember, we had some early playtests with them back in December and November of 2009. They were one of the few that played Orion before it was originally released, played it after release, and will also have the opportunity to play the huge new patch and give their thoughts! We'll post more details about this as it gets closer.
For now, enjoy the media:
Keep your eye on HalfLife2.net (www.halflife2.net) tomorrow. They will be posting their hands on impressions with the latest build of Beta 1.2
We have a few things left on our to-do list for the public release of Beta 1.2 - but don't fear - we are extremely close. Keep your eye on this page for all things Orion!
