Disintegration, a new sci-fi game from the creative director of the original Halo, is having its first closed beta and open beta this month. Players are invited to sign up for and download the Disintegration beta to help put the game through its paces ahead of release.

The Disintegration betas will provide players their first hands-on look at the game from the minds that brought us Halo and SOCOM.

Disintegration will also include two game modes in the betas: Control and Retrieval. Control has players capturing areas to amass points – a mode included in many self-respecting multiplayer games these days. The other, Retrieval, has one team trying to deliver cargo while the other defends. This sounds more like classic Assault from Halo.

Speaking of Halo, Disintegration is the brainchild of Marcus Lehto and Mike Gutmann. Lehto is known for his role in the creation of Halo: Combat Evolved while Gutmann was the director of the SOCOM series. These two series have clearly inspired Disintegration, which fuses the sci-fi shooter elements of Halo with SOCOM’s tactics.

While we haven’t heard too much about Disintegration, it’s certainly looking like a unique take on the sci-fi shooter experience. With the closed beta kicking off soon, and the open beta coming shortly after, we’re about to know a lot more about Disintegration. Scoot on over to the Shacknews Disintegration page for more, on-going coverage.
