Fallen Empire: Legions Open Beta Launches

The open beta for GarageGames' online shooter Fallen Empire: Legions, a spiritual sequel to Starsiege: Tribes, has launched on web portal InstantAction.com.

Prospective beta testers need only sign up for a free InstantAction account in order to get in on the action.

nope As in Tribes, Fallen Empire's major draw is its jetpack-based flight, which makes for a rather frenetic first-person shooter. The game supports up to 16 players on two maps, played in either deathmatch or capture-the-flag modes.
