As of this writing, IGG has readied four download sites from which alpha test players may download the test client. The company also promised that more sites will be go live soon. IGG also appreciated the overwhelming show of enthusiasm that the myriad of aspiring alpha testers exhibited during the registration period.
As a concession for the unfortunate players who weren't initially accepted during the initial registration, IGG will offer additional accounts on its official forum. Slots are limited, however, so those who hope to participate as an alpha tester had better sign up fast.
As an FYI, IGG mentioned that all alpha test accounts will still be made available for the upcoming Zu Online closed beta test phase. Furthermore, IGG is open to receiving your suggestions and bug reports, so tell them what you think and help them make Zu Online a better game for everybody.
Seoul , Korea - October 20, 2007 - After 2 months of additional development and upgrades, NCONY Enterprise is proud to announce the reopening of the Pi Story (www.pistory.gamengame.com) game server for a second round of closed beta tests. Closed Beta Test 2 will begin at 6 p.m. on October 26th and close at 7 a.m. on November 2nd. The servers are open 13 hours a day, from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. GMT.
Major bugs reported by players from the last closed beta round have been tested and fixed for a smoother game play. The server's performance has also been improved for less network issues. New additions to the game include more maps, a new class, and enhanced battle skills for a better game experience.
Players who participated in the Closed Beta Test 1 in September will receive a special game item as a thank you for playing the last test round. In addition, to celebrate Halloween, the developers of Pi Story have also created limited edition Halloween avatar items so that players can spice up there characters look and celebrate the Halloween event as they play! These items will be only be offered during Closed Beta Test 2.
For those who haven't heard of Fury, this MMORPG sports a unique combat system that allows players to use almost all of their abilities instantly. In addition to this, most spells don't need to "channel" allowing magic users to run around and dodge incoming attacks while casting. Playing the game online is free though more hardcore gamers who want to be able to connect to the servers without having to wait may opt to avail of the Immortal subscription plan.
So far Fury already has a pretty solid community supporting the game, so players won't have to search for opponents to play against. If this MMORPG becomes even more popular, we might be seeing Auran Games working on a sequel.
Since there is a good chance things will be changing, we didn't want to update the official Herald documentation just yet, so please use the following links as your guide to what's on Pendragon right now.

How Our Beta Process Works
We wanted to take a few minutes to talk about how we run our Beta tests, the differences of and timing for getting builds out to the testers, and basically let you in on what makes our test tick.
Our development path is quite different from that of the vast majority of game developers. We utilize what we call an organic process, which is basically shorthand for our way of constantly iterating, tweaking, tuning, and making changes that are difficult to set months or years ahead of time in a traditional design document. When we get into the last 6 - 9 months of development time, this process really kicks into high-gear. We are making an immense amount of changes, both larg
