Stargate Worlds developer FireSky is planning an open beta for just before the game's launch, slated for early 2009.
When asked if the team was planning an open beta, studio head Dan Elggren replied: "Yeah. I want to do that just before launch. To me you've got to have a pretty solid product when you go into open beta."
He added: "Age of Conan, I mean they had a miracle patch at launch. I tried their open beta and I was like, 'oh! What is this?!' But then they launched the game. I want to be able to go out there with open beta as like a great way to market the game and for people to play it and have a positive experience that they want to now go buy the game."
