Bombs Away! OGPlanet's BB Tanks Begins Open Beta Testing

El Segundo, Calif.--March 2, 2009-- It's all-out war at OGPlanet as the BB Tanks open beta test goes live today. Starting today, OGPlanet members can download the game client software at www.ogplanet.com and start blowing up new friends from around the world.

"While the game had been in an informal open beta before," explained Don Choi, COO of OGPlanet, "we recently took the game offline to do a major revitalization through an internal closed beta. The result is a streamlined, user-friendly version of our cartoony tank game. The players will be thrilled with how BB Tanks is shaping up."

BB Tanks - a cult favorite among OGPlanet's free-to-play line-up - offers a fun twist on turn-based strategy tank shooter combat. These cute, cartoon tanks have a wide range of quirky personalities that are only matched by their wide array of weaponry. Players must match their skill at setting the angle and power of each shot with weaponselections that range from homing missiles and satellite shots to poison gas and water balloons.

During the open beta, players who have registered for free OGPlanet accounts can hop into combat with up to 7 friends from across the globe. While the game's premium items will not be added until the official consumer launch, there will be several fun surprises, including various open beta events where players can win OGPlanet Astros.
