Wicked Interactive’s latest MMORPG offering is set to launch its closed-beta testing phase on North American soil tomorrow. Beta keys can be obtained exclusively through Alienware Arena from tomorrow onward as well, but there are no links to the page yet. You can just check the official BHO site, in case one appears in the next few hours.
Bounty Hounds Online is free-to-play and is based on the popular PlayStation Portable (PSP) title of the same name.
“We are thrilled to have Alienware Arena participate in the launch,” said Sam Ho, Director, Wicked Interactive. “Their gamers are among the Web’s most influential and discerning. We know that they will not only go crazy for Bounty Hound Online’s sci-fi theme, they will also appreciate the four years of development that went into creating what will stand alongside such classic Namco Bandai titles as Pac-Man, Tekken, Ace Combat, Armored Core and Katamari.“
Players may select one of the five classes — Bioengineer, Artillery and Scientist, Agent, and Trooper, to be paired with a robot pet which transforms into a battle mech should the need arise. BHO has multiple factions such Mercenary Companies which allows for PvP between other similar groups.
