announces Alpha testing the Ryzom
Ring expansion for The Saga of Ryzom, their MMORPG:
PARIS, FRANCE –
November 15, 2005 – Nevrax, the developer and publisher of the
massively-multiplayer science-fiction fantasy game The Saga of Ryzom, announced
today it has launched the alpha test of Ryzom Ring, its first expansion.
“Ryzom Ring is an extremely powerful expansion pack,” says Daniel Miller, CTO
and Executive Producer of Ryzom Ring. “The opportunity is finally given to the
players to become not only participants, but creators.”
Ryzom Ring offers players of The Saga of Ryzom a complete set of simple and
intuitive tools to design and implement adventures and maps thus empowering them
to imagine, create, launch, share and enjoy an almost infinite combination of
online scenarios. It is the first time that a massively multiplayer online
role-playing game has offered its players such a large scale creation and
“Ryzom’s future is, from now on, in the hands of players,” Miller added.
From Alpha Test to Launch
Beginning with 50 of its most loyal players, new testers will be continually
added to the alpha team until early 2006, when the Ring will enter its beta
phase, during which all of The Saga of Ryzom’s players will be welcome. Also in
Q1 2006, there will be further open beta and load testing opportunities before
the Ring’s official launch by the end of Q1.
A new website is currently being created to inform all players and testers of
the status of the Ring’s development, and which will contain new communication
and monitoring tools for all the testers and our future “creators” once testing
