The project celebrates its 4th birthday with nice numbers, several screenshots and a good answer to the question "When will it finally come out?"

At least "as good as finished". Although all content is integrated and the worst bugs have been wiped out in the last weeks of testing, the final and big beta testing is still to come. The game all beta testers get looks like that:
The world of Nehrim consists of 555840 objects in 9622 loading areas (levels) and is inhabited by 1285 non-player characters, some of them friendly, others hostile. A comparison: Oblivion has 907983 objects in 32000 loading areas. 1616 scripts take care of offering the players enough variety in the 35-part main quest as well as in the about 30 side quests. In the German version, you can hear 56 professional voice actors, while the nearly 50 new and self-composed pieces of music can be enjoyed internationally. On top of that, there are a lot of new weapons, armours and spells. Referring to the testers, the game can hold you busy for about 40-50 hours. The installation file will have a size of 2 GB.
Our date still is "when it's done" - depending on how quick the beta testing will proceed, the waiting time won't extend 2 months from 1st April on. However, this will be the German version - the release of an English version will be later.
No, we choose the testers on our own.
