Battleswarm, Atari founder Nolan Bushnell's online PC game that pits real-time strategy players against first-person shooter fans, is now allowing players to sign up for beta in advance of next month's release.
Battleswarm seems to be coming along well for a game we only heard about just last month. That's probably because the title, being developed by Gameworld Tech Co, LTD, was already released in Taiwan. The USA Today article the original story came from seems to credit Bushnell for development, but in reality it's the company he co-founded, Reality Gap, Inc., that will be performing publishing duties in worldwide English.
Online titles ported to North America generally move into beta rather quickly, as is the case with Battleswarm: Field of Honor. Anyone interested in pitting their RTS skills against opponents' FPS skills and vice-versa can visit http://www.battleswarm.net/ to give it a go.
