Purge is an online-only computer game. It is a hybrid Role-Playing-Game / First-Person-Shooter set in the near future accounting a war between the diametrically opposed forces of science-fiction (the Order) and fantasy (the Chosen). Technology versus magic. Science versus religion. Purge is being developed by Freeform Interactive LLC and utilizes the LithTech Talon system.
Freeform Interactive opens the beta signups for Phase 4 of the Purge Closed Beta Test. This is an extremely intensive closed beta, currently scheduled for September 1st, 2002. We are primarily testing for bugs, multiplayer lag, and game balance. We are looking for a variety of hardware setups, ranging from our minimum spec (Pentium-3 500Mhz / 128MB System RAM / 3D Video Card with 32MB RAM) to the latest computers. Be aware, with a minimum spec computer, you will be playing Purge at the absolute lowest graphics settings. Closed beta testers are expected to provide continous feedback by participating in related discussions in the forums and promptly download weekly or bi-weekly updates to the game which can exceed 80MB. Therefore, broadband or a reliable 56k modem connection is required. Phase 4 is limited to 3000 seats.
