ORION: SOURCE MULTIPLAYER BETA - LAST CALL!


Things are about to get pretty crazy for us. We will be bunkering down under ground for the next few months preparing a plethora of content to get ready for the early months of 2011.

As you all know, we announced a cease development on the ORION: Source Multiplayer Beta which went into effect on July 1st, 2010. We had to shift our focus towards the new title in development which would encompass all of the great features that we wanted to add (dinosaurs, vehicles) and had the ultimatum of choosing between the two.

So we were thinking... how about one last hoorah?


SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30TH, 2010

We are gearing up for a neat little event this Saturday - the day before Halloween. We invite everyone to go ahead and join this game as well as welcome any new fans of ORION to download the Source Multiplayer Beta and have the opportunity to get a taste of it.



WHEN:

Sat, October 30, 2010

US PACIFIC: 11am - 1:00pm
US CENTRAL: 1:00pm - 3:00pm
US EASTERN: 2:00pm - 4:00pm
LONDON: 7:00pm - 9:00pm

WHERE:

66.150.221.63:27016

HOW TO PREPARE

STEP 1:
Ensure that you own one of the following games:
Half-Life 2 / Half-Life 2: Episode 1 / Half-Life 2: Episode 2 / Counter-Strike: Source / Day of Defeat: Source / Portal / Team Fortress 2 / Left 4 Dead / Left 4 Dead 2 / or any other Valve Source Engine game that comes with the Source SDK.

STEP 2:
Go to your 'Tools' tab to ensure that you have the Source SDK Base 2007 installed.

STEP 2:
Download the ORION: Source Multiplayer Beta (v1.2) Full Installer:
Moddb.com

STEP 3:
Run the installer. It will auto detect where to install to based on registry files.

STEP 4:
Restart STEAM.

STEP 5:
Launch STEAM and go to your 'Games > Libray' Tab. ORION - Beta 1.2 should be there. Launch it.

STEP 6:
Go to 'Find Servers' and UN-CHECK "Show Map List" - otherwise you won't see any game servers. Refresh again.

STEP 7:
You are good to go! See you on Saturday!

Nope.

We are simply bringing back the Source Beta back from the grave for one day before we go into a 4 month hiding period to develop some "things" for early 2011.

We want to get one last hoorah of ORION with the public - and Beta 1.2 is going to be the outlet. We hope to see you there!

Ah, yes. The Orion: Source multiplayer beta. Good times, good times. Albeit the levels differ greatly in quality and the character models look like they've been cloned from Halo, the game has a certain charm that kept me coming back for more. I will definitely consider attending!
