Wolfpack Studios, currently working on their upcoming Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game Shadowbane, recently opened up a large number of positions on their beta test of the game. Wolfpack is allowing all these new testers in to essentially "break the game", or in other words, make it easier for them to iron out any remaining bugs.

For those who have yet to hear about Shadowbane, it is a MMORPG of a new kind, where the run the history and culture of the world. Players can create guilds, build cities, and even wage war against other cities.

Here's the full info on the added beta players:

For the second time in five days, the massive gates of the Shadowbane Closed Beta are opening up again to allow more testers into the world of Aerynth. Five thousand new testers will be admitted into the beta test sometime today, the largest amount in the game's history. The new testers were ordered by Associate Shadowbane Producer Arkama to do whatever they could to break the game. "We want them to break Shadowbane. We really need them to tear this game apart so we can analyze it, fix it, and put it all back together. We need them to give us the best that they can muster," said Arkama.

Last Friday, three thousand new beta testers were admitted into the Shadowbane beta test. Today's announcement brings the five day total to eight thousand new testers for Shadowbane's continuing closed testing, more invitations are expected very soon. Congratulations to all those who received their beta acceptance letter.

G3 350 MHz or higher
128 MB RAM
1 GB free hard drive space
