Bigpoint Undertakes Universal Monsters Online into Closed Beta27 Jul 2012
San Francisco – July 26, 2012 – Bigpoint – a worldwide leader in online games – today announced that Universal Monsters Online has entered closed beta, and is now accepting player registrations to access the game before its global open beta launch. Developed in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, Universal Monsters Online is a fast-paced, free-to-play Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game that brings together Universal’s iconic monsters into one competitive experience.
“We’re excited to have players jump into the closed beta of Universal Monsters Online,” said Billy Delli-Gatti, Producer, Bigpoint. “During this phase, we’re able to test and optimise the game for improvements, and the community feedback we receive will help to ensure that the game is fun and entertaining.”
Universal Monsters Online pits the brand’s iconic cast of monsters into a “winner-take-all” timed gameplay session where two opposing teams claw and gouge their way across a richly-detailed game environment to achieve the ultimate victory: raiding enemy territory to locate the damsel and returning her to the team’s fortress.
During the closed beta, players will be whisked into character selection mode where they can choose from a diabolical lineup of legendary monsters – Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and of course, Frankenstein’s monster among many others. Full-team cooperation will be demanded to survive, succeed, and defeat the town’s chaotic villagers, zombies, and seemingly indestructible turrets.
Registration for Universal Monster Online’s exclusive closed beta before its worldwide release can be found at: http://www.UniversalMonstersOnline.com/. In the following weeks, Bigpoint will increasingly unlock new player accounts for gamers to experience their favourite classic Universal Monsters in a refreshing new MOBA.
