After An important team meeting the developers of Pokémon Universe decided they will try to release a public beta version of PU in December 2011!
The beta version will feature a brand new map and all basic features. It will give the players a real taste of what Pokémon Universe will have in store, and it will of course test the server and the game itself.
At this moment 12 players that have been chosen by the developers team are already testing the game and server. Everyone else who wants to try the game will have to wait till December though, because there isn’t a playable version of PU available to download yet.
I’m sure more news will come when the beta gets closer!
