Escape Velocity: Nova Hits Beta
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The Ambrosia Software progress log for their upcoming "threequel" Escape Velocity: Nova was updated over the weekend with news that the game is feature-complete and moving into beta testing. David Williams of the Australian company ATMOS heralds the good news with this short, but sweet, line:

beta 1 build compiled and away

Dave @ ATMOS

Congratulations should go out to all the folks at ATMOS along with Matt Burch for all their hard work up to this point. While there's no release date set for EV: Nova, you can bet the team will do its best to hurry the game through to completion.

Be sure to check out the EV: Nova preambles site for more background on the game, and we also noticed three new screen shots of EV: Nova available as well. They show off some of the title's improved interface and sidebar as well as ships.
