LUCENT HEART’S CLOSED BETA EXTRAVAGANZA!

From today, Lucent Heart’s final closed beta event begins. The previous closed betas before have seen players exploring, socialising, fighting and bonding all within the vibrant and dangerous realm of Acadia. They’ve been in teams or on their own, but above all, they’ve all experienced the magic of what Lucent Heart has to offer….and demanded even more!

With the Zodiac-inspired social MMO conducting its final closed beta from Thursday 9 th to Monday 20 th June, Gamania, Lucent Heart’s publisher, has planned a full schedule of supervised activities to meet the demands of its beta players.

The schedule is as varied as it is exciting, including the Formula Alpaca Grand Prix Series– the Lucent Heart racing series; You:Tubed– where the winning teams adventures are recorded and used within Lucent Heart YouTube trailers; Super Smootch– players bring their soul mates in-game for a massive kissathon; and Horde events where teams have to rid the city streets of all monsters, with an added bonus for the most committed fighters.

Usually with a Closed Beta Test it is expected that publishers will wipe all the player data, but Gamania has decided to try something a little different. Players will be given the chance in the final‘horde event’ at 6pm on Sunday 19 th June to work together to literally fight for their lives! If they succeed in vanquishing the final wave of oncoming monsters Gamania will cancel the planned CBT data wipe so all in-game characters, relationships, items, skills, equipment and rewards will be safely carried through when Lucent Heart goes live this summer, but ONLY if they succeed in killing every last monster.

What’s more, there are lots of essential in-game goodies to collect via the Lucent Heart Facebook Zodiac Matchmaker app ( http://apps.facebook.com/zodiacmatchmaker). Simply use the app to find which of your friends would be good to battle or socialise with in-game then follow the link that appears once you have posted the results to your friends wall.

Players can even enter Lucent Heart with exclusive mounts to ride throughout the game such as the‘Dark Shadow Warg’ or the‘Tri-Horned Dragon’! The mounts are available on our partner sites: follow this link to the forum for more details: http://bit.ly/LHMounts
