For those who tried to get into the previous Darkspore beta period with no success, Maxis has some good news. The developers have announced another round of the closed beta especially for PC gamers running the Steam platform.
With Darkspore set to launch April 26, Maxis wants to use the remaining time to further “balance and fine-tune the game, incorporating fan input, so that the game is just right when unleashed toward the end of next month.” To accomplish this, they have opened up the closed beta to prospective Steam gamers from today through 12pm PST on April 1st.
To get in on the four player co-op action and/or the one-on-one and two-on-two PvP battles, follow this link to download the beta client from Steam. Don’t have Steam? Then this link is what you’re looking for first.
