fallen-earth-screenFans of post apocalyptic MMOs will get a chance to test their skills against other human players in the virtual worlds of Fallen Earth starting next week when the MMOFPS will enter the Open Beta stage. The program will debut on August 17 and it is expected to run without any problems and finish just in time for the full game release on September 9.

In order to join the Fallen Earth open beta, you will have to register, starting August 17 on FilePlanet and… well… play! Taking place in the Grand Canyon, Fallen Earth gives players the choice to rebuild the decaying world or participate in its destruction through use of the classless advancement system, real-time crafting and the seamless integration of first-person shooter and role-playing game mechanics.

“The Open Beta and Pre-Order programs give a much larger group of players the opportunity to experience Fallen Earth,” says Jessica Orr, product manager for Fallen Earth. “We are excited that players want to get a jump on the game, and we are including a little something extra for being among the first to order.”

“The first to order” Fallen Earth will get an in-game mount and the chance to experience the full game early starting on September 5.
