It seems like turn-based strategy was the pupal stage leading to the emergence of beautiful MMO butterflies for Jagged Alliance and UFO: Online, who are now poking their mandibles out of their coccoon in the form of beta sign-ups.
Which would make you the entomologists, prodding at the newly emerging life form from their development cocoon. If you manage to get on the beta that is. We've only been given brief glimpses of each game, but there's no harm in joining the testing process to see for yourselves. UFO's beta launches today and Jagged Alliance's will follow just a few days later.
