Een van de grote online games die het rijtje van Everquest en Ultima Online aan mag vullen is Anarchy Online. Na maanden van testen is het spel vandaag goud gegaan en zal over een kleine maand in de winkels te koop zijn.

Op dit moment is het testen (vreemd genoeg) nog in volle gang en is er een lange waslijst aan bugs te fixen. Deze publieke testen van BETA 4 zullen echter doorgaan tot de uiteindelijke release.ANARCHY ONLINE GOES GOLD!

Norway, June 11, 2001 - After receiving high praise at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo last month, Funcom's highly anticipated title, Anarchy Online, has reached gold master status and is now in manufacturing. As the first game in years to take up competition with other popular massively multi-player online role-playing games, Anarchy Online will be available in

Nordic and North American stores by June 27th with servers going live that day.

"We are very excited to bring Anarchy Online to the market and expect that our customers will be very happy with the final product," says Funcom president Andre Backen. "No other game in the market today can rival our

graphics and none can support as many players in the same playing field as we can."

While the actual game code is now in manufacturing, with all gaming content and features completed, testing for server stability will continue until the day the game goes live. Funcom now has thousands of testers playing this version to find server problems and get them solved as quickly as possible before launch.

Anarchy Online is a massively multi-player online role-playing game in a science fiction setting. This game can only be played online and users will need to pay a monthly subscription fee in order to access the game. Players will encounter a thriving, constantly developing, 3D online world with thousands of other players connected at the same time. Join the Omni-Tek

corporation or the rebel clans, and take part in the epic struggle unfolding on the mysterious world of Rubi-Ka. It's up to you to take on the challenge, and make yourself a part of history - future history.Na wat kritische uitspraken door beta-testers heeft Funcom, de maker van het spel, een compleet nieuwe versie van het spel uitgebracht waar niet enkel de graphics verbazingwekkend mooi zijn geworden, maar ook een aantal ingrijpende gameplay-veranderingen zijn doorgevoerd.
