City of Steam Beta Now Live

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE!        City of Steam Beta Now Live


R2Games and Mechanist Games announce City of Steam Beta going live as of 10PM EDT today

May 10 th, 2013

City of Steam, the 3D industrial age fantasy MMORPG, has opened its doors once more. As of today (May 10 th) 10PM EST (7PM PDT, May 11 th 2AM BST), players can register or log in right now at and walk the streets of the city of Nexus. Mechanist Games and R2Games are eager to have people playing the game once more after the games’ well-received Closed Beta in December.  

They are closely working together to realise a very aggressive release schedule that will see new features and content added to the game on an almost bi-weekly basis. The Vault, an entire new suburb (hub) is scheduled to be released this month, and an additional suburb (zone) will follow soon after. New features like events, a fully streamlined skill, talent and crafting system and substantial amounts of cosmetics have also been added to the game.

More information on what content and features will be included in the May 10 th Beta release can be found in this post that went up earlier today on City of Steam’s official website.  Mechanist Games has made several changes and additions to the game over the 5 months since Closed Beta, and because of this they are anxious for player feedback on the sites’ forums and feedback system, both accessible from the info-bar under the game window.
