The Samurai Legends website - Samurailegends.com - has been updated with a letter from Student Producer, Rick Luebbers, discussing plans for the start of closed beta testing, open beta release, as well as new movies.
"A week ago Samurai Legends was shown, for the first time, to the public and the gaming industry at The Guildhall Student Exhibition. It was a rousing success and even Gabe Newell (yes, the founder of Valve itself) was on hand to see it! We were all very excited about people’s reactions and will, as planned, be launching our Closed Beta test this week!
However, we don’t want to forget about those of you who are patiently waiting for our Open Beta release and so we’ll be rolling out a new series of videos throughout Closed Beta. These videos, combined with the video we released last week, make up the 20 minute trailer we had running during our show and thus will include not just lots of gameplay but a full tutorial on how to play the game. So stay tuned as all our secrets will be revealed.
So thanks for your interest everyone and stay tuned. It’s an exciting time as the first stage of our release has begun!"
