Blue Mars limited Beta to begin in June

Posted by Bettina Tizzy

Blue Mars, the upcoming virtual world that will use the bleeding-edge game engine CryEngine2, is slated to begin its limited Beta testing in June, according to Jim Sink, Avatar Reality's vp.

The virtual worlds community is concerned that Blue Mars has been built for systems running Vista (!) and that only select developers will be able to create content in-world, but we are hoping against hope that we will be able to persuade them to make some significant changes before launch.
