Project Gorgon warns alpha users that their free ride is ending
For a very long time now — we are talking years, here — Project Gorgon has operated a free public alpha to anyone who wanted to enjoy the game and test it out. But now with the launch of the title on Steam early access this month, that free ride is about to come to a close.
The team sent out notices on Twitter that it will be deactivating the standalone alpha client “in the near future.” This doesn’t mean the end of those players’ accounts; by purchasing the Steam version, a former alpha tester can link accounts and carry over his or her characters to the early access client.
Project Gorgon is charging $40 for its buy-to-play MMO. The title has accumulated over 100 reviews on Steam so far and remained in the “very positive” range of impressions.
