It's only been a week since we were told that the European Home
beta expansion was pretty close and that the open beta was expected "within weeks,
" but now TedTheDog has updated us with some more
information regarding the current situation. Don't panic -- it's all good news. Here's how the whole situation will play out.
Firstly the version 1.0 patch notes will be made available for those currently in the Home
beta. They will be published in the closed beta forums, but don't be surprised if they spill out of there shortly thereafter. A few days after that version 1.0 will go live. Within a day or so of that
invitations will be sent out as the closed beta gets significantly expanded as a load test for the servers. The open beta will begin shortly afterwards (a matter of weeks).
So there we have it. We'll let you know when any of the above actually happens, as usual. Can you taste it? It's close. We just hope version 1.0 brings some significant updates to the service like, for example, some actual content. Here's hoping.
