IRVINE, Calif. – May 15, 2012 – Gamania Digital Entertainment today revealed the official Closed Beta launch date for its free-to-play, 3D MMORPG, Divina. Starting Wednesday, May 16, at 10:00AM PDT, players will be able to participate in Divina’s May Madness Beta testing, which will feature open world Player versus Player (PvP) combat for the first time, as well as new competitive events. The May Madness Beta will end on Sunday, May 20, at 11:59PM PDT, giving testers five full days to explore Divina and help get it ready for its commercial launch this year.
“After the success of our recent sneak peek event for Divina, we’re very excited to get our beta testing underway,” said David Wong, COO of Gamania. “The staff and GMs will have more time to get to know players during this test, and we’re anxious to see what everyone thinks about the open world PvP system that will be unlocked. If all goes well, we should be seeing Divina launch sooner than expected this year.”
To further stress Divina’s server infrastructure, Gamania will be issuing a large number of Closed Beta invites which players can find at one of the beta key giveaways running this week.
The May Madness Beta will feature exciting competitive events, pitting players against each other in a mad race to become Divina’s Champion:
- Last Man Standing – Players fight each other in qualifying rounds leading up to the PvP Championships on the last day of beta.
- Last Guild Standing – Guilds can compete in 5 vs 5 PvP battles up to the Last Guild Standing Championship, deciding the strongest guild in Divina.
- Guild vs Guild Dungeon Scramble – Divina’s dungeons are known for their difficulty. Guilds can race each other to be the first to complete the same instance!
In addition, Gamania will be rewarding loyal players returning to Divina. Those that filled out a survey at the end of the Challenge 72 Beta will receive an exclusive Elite Costume for their highest level character to use during the May Madness Beta. And, all players that get past level 15 in the May Madness Beta will receive an exclusive Haruhime mini-pet when they return for Open Beta!
