In a surprise announcement, Playnet.com associate producer Dana "Gophur" Baldwin informed IMG that the Mac version of World War II Online, the massively multiplayer online war game from Cornered Rat Software, is about to enter the next stage of closed beta testing, and they are looking to the Mac OS X gaming community for recruits to participate.

In the first phase, Playnet will need a hundred additional beta testers or so. In phase two, they will expand their beta test pool to about a thousand people. Here is the announcement we received from Playnet:

Cornered Rat Software's massively multiplayer online game World War II Online has been available on the PC for almost a year now. The highly anticipated Macintosh version has been in testing since the earliest release of our product and we are anxious to complete this process and bring it to market soon.

We're looking for a few good men (and women) to participate in the next phase of our beta testing for the Macintosh. We are currently accepting applications for our Mac Beta and would like to invite you to share the application URL with your readers.

The beta test sign-up will be open for two weeks and will close Monday, March 18. The non-disclosure agreements will be sent out via postal mail or e-mail (in PDF form) as soon as applications are approved. After filling out the NDA, you'll have to send it to an address Playnet will provide you.

Look for a hands-on preview of World War II Online coming up on IMG.
