Confirmed by Katelyn Olmstead community manager of Allods Online!

Well, this is earlier then I expected! but this is what the press is saying with Tara Einis of Gala-Net has the source.

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gala-Net, Inc., a leading free-to-play online game publisher, has announced today their Open Beta Test (OBT) for Allods Online in the North American market. The Open Beta Test will go live on February 16th and will allow players access to the entire game. All players are welcome to join the world of Allods, and there will be no restrictions to join!

Allods Online is a revolutionary sci-fi fantasy MMORPG developed by Astrum Nival, creators of Heroes of Might & Magic V, with a budget of $12 million and four years in development. Astrum Nival is owned by Mail.Ru, the leading online gaming publisher in Russia. Two warring factions, League and Empire, vie for control of allods—islands floating in Astral space. The truly unique aspect of Allods Online is the Astral ship system. Players can create their own ships, crewed by entire parties where each player has a distinct role, from navigator and helmsman to engineer and gunner. From their astral ship, players can navigate the randomly generated astral space where they can explore uncharted allods, fight massive Astral demons, and engage in Astral piracy on unwary fellow travelers. The game features an unprecedented amount of content for a free-to-play MMORPG: 2 factions, 6 races, 8 archetypes, 28 classes, and over 2,000 quests. The production values are top-notch with full motion-capture animation, top award-wining artists, and a soundtrack by Mark Morgan, composer for the hit TV-series Dexter, Fallout & Fallout 2, and Planescape: Torment.

“Allods Online had a phenomenal response from users across all of our closed beta tests! The positive feedback has been overwhelming, from hundreds of press articles and blog posts, to tens of thousands of emails and forum comments. Players have been raving about every aspect of the game experience, from astral ships and exploration, to the wonderfully detailed steampunk atmosphere. Most importantly, however, we’ve had countless players tell us that Allods has demolished the standard for quality in a microtransactional game. With our open beta, we welcome all newcomers to discover the Allods universe, as they journey from the planet of Sarnaut to the farthest reaches of Astral space.” – Patrick Paik, Marketing Manager, Gala-Net, Inc.
