The folks at Chaos Online have announced that they will begin alpha testing Chaos Online on August 1st.
"We are glad to announce that, the Alpha testing of Chaos Online will start on August 1st, 2008. During the Alpha testing period, if there are no big mistakes/bugs there will be No Server Wipe.
Chaos Online is a free to play Sci-Fi MMORPG where modern technology & weaponry melds with Ancient Myth and Martial Arts. Since our purpose is to let players participate in developing a MMORPG, and we have decided No Server Wipe when alpha testing ends, so there are several instructions in alpha testing period."
