Dark Horizons: Lore Open Beta Available
8:43 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

GarageGames today announced an Open Beta Program for its impressive looking Mech game, Dark Horizons: Lore. Created by MaxGaming Technologies, the Mac OS X beta weighs in at just under 86 MB and is available for download through the Dark Horizons: Lore web site.

Here's more from the official press release:

Dark Horizons: Lore is a fast action FPS style mecha game where the player’s stats will affect the outcome of the war and ultimately write the history of the Dark Horizons universe. This “backend” method of stat tracking will be the next element to be stress tested by the development team.

“Overall we've been very happy with the response we've gotten from our beta players to Lore,” explains Adrian Wright, President of Max Gaming Technologies, “once they understand this is a FPS with early mechanized assault vehicles, even the most hardcore of mecha sim players will enjoy the melee multiplayer action.”

“I have been playing, and modding, Starsiege and Tribes for five years in order to do my part to keep the games alive." comments Stephen Tungate, Beta Tester on Dark Horizons: Lore. "I never thought a game would come along with the features of both. Dark Horizons Lore will be the game to rekindle the fire of the mecha gaming community."

To download the game and post feedback for the developers, head over to the Dark Horizons: Lore web site. You will need to use ignition code: RAYR-R46W-KZ4Z-Z6CW

[Update:] It seems the crashes some people are experiencing have been acknowledged by the lead Mac developer on the Dark Horizons team. He says to be patient and that a patch is on its way soon.
