Mad Min-Max: Apox Open Beta

By Jim Rossignol on December 22nd, 2010.


Post-apocalyptic multiplayer RTS Apox has announced an open beta, which you can apparently sign up for just here. It’s a Steam download and it will be free to all for the next two weeks. The final release of the game will occur on January 6th. I’ll try and dip a toe into the game over the Christmas break and have some thoughts about it when we come back.

And why wouldn’t you be, if you are not John Walker?
