Galaxy Online: Open Beta to Take Flight around Halloween
As you look forward to Halloween, there’s an extra reason to get excited about the season. The Open Beta for Galaxy Online is set to launch on Thursday, Oct 29th! Galaxy Online is the first strategic space war game developed by IGG. More than 200 developers spent 2 years developing Galaxy Online, and now have finally completed preparations for the Open Beta.

In that time, the team has mainly been introducing new hulls, new modules, and new systems to the game, as well as modifying the existing hulls and modules to achieve the right mixture of balance and fun. For example, they introduced the Aggressive Pirates to stimulate teamwork as players work to defend their galaxies. Overall, the team feels they have created a fun and fair gaming environment.
A new server named Pisces will launch along with the Open Beta. Players can also look forward to a series of fun and exciting events that will be held to mark the occasion and kick off Open Beta with a bang.
