Making History II Beta Opens for Pre-Order Customers

NEWBURYPORT, Mass.--()--The beta for Making History II: The War of the World (MHII) has begun for customers who pre-ordered the game. MHII is expected to release June 15.

Those interested in participating in the beta can still pre-order the game for $39.99 at Stardock’s Impulse, Paradox Interactive’s GamersGate or the game’s website, www.making-history.com.

“We’re always looking for ways to include our fans in the process. This beta will allow our community to help us polish the game even more,” says Dave McCool, president and CEO, Muzzy Lane. “We also intend to continue adding to our player’s experience with Making History II up to -- and beyond -- launch with updates, mods and our new multiplayer game service.”

MHII gives WWII grand strategy gamers the opportunity to lead a nation and remake history. MHII reflects the reality that economics win wars as much as combat, so players can customize the development of specific cities, regions and units to support their objectives. Along the way they will face rival political factions both domestic and international, diplomatic choices that affect their nation's status and reputation, and a reactive artificial intelligence that alters its strategy based on player actions. The game is a return to the relaxed, communal way board games are played infused with the latest social functionality: personal user pages, a new web-enabled messaging system, friend lists, leaderboards, multiplayer matchmaking, persistent hosted games, and group management support.
