Ministry Of War: Even Bigger Beta Giveaway

By Jim Rossignol on September 7th, 2010.


The beta for intriguing MMO RTS Ministry Of War is opening up, and you guys can get your access to this phase through this link – specially for RPS readers!

Developers Snail need as many people as possible for this next stage of their testing, so go give it a look.
