Dawntide has entered phase 2 of its beta. With some luck, a bribe and a sacrifice or two I was granted access. Since they don't use a NDA I can freely talk about (and show) my experiences. It should be pretty fun to document its development. Oh and of course help them find bugs :)
Some of the graphics are very nice, much better than I was expecting for a beta. I especially like the water and sky. For more articles about Dawntide, click on the tag.
You may still be able to get into this round of testing, head over to their beta center.
