The official Shadowbane web site has been updated with a number of news stories about the title from the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). Included in the list are a few previews, the lowdown on the game's backstory, a "Best MMORPG of E3" award, and many new screen shots.
One very comprehensive report comes from Shadowbane Warcry with two pages of impressions and a number of photos from the show floor. Here's the scoop on the game's current status and future beta plans:
We talked a bit about beta and how the game was going. He said there were approximately 1,200 people in beta right now. That number should be raised to 2,500 within the next few weeks. Open beta will probably begin in July and they are expecting to have at least 10,000 to 20,000 players once they ramp it up. Wolfpack had just finished a big graphics upgrade and they were showing it off at E3. The upgrades should be put into the beta within the next week or two.Shadowbane was awarded "Best MMORPG of E3" by RPGDot, beating out the many other massively multiplayer online role-playing games at the show. IGN also has the scoop on the Shadowbane storyline, while Shadowbane Realm and Unknown Player have a number of impressive new screen shots.
Once Shadowbane is considered ready for public consumption later this year, it will be published for both Mac and PC by Ubi Soft.
