The latest Auto Assault newsletter arrived, handily saving me the time taken to post individual newsbits on the game:
Greetings from the Central
Our beta started last week and we are stoked by the
level of participation and reactions from our early testing community. This week
we’ve sent out another batch of emails to applicants and will be doing so for
months to come. It’s still not to late to sign up! Visit http://www.plaync.com/aa_beta.html
E3 2005 is only two weeks away and Auto Assault will have a huge presence at
the NCsoft booth (#1024, South Hall). Be sure to check out our E3 page (http://www.autoassault.com/e3_2005.html)
which includes highlights from last year. We will be updating the page
periodically up to and through the expo, so revisit often and see what’s
There are two new Recon updates up this week, a new
chapter in our historical preludes to the game called “For the Greater Good” (http://www.autoassault.com/recon/recon_history_prelude_chapter3.html),
and a look at the Biomek Terminator (http://www.autoassault.com/recon/recon_class_terminator.html)
class. Our forum poll has been updated (http://boards.autoassault.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=17886)
as has the NetDevil Auto Assault
team page (http://www.autoassault.com/team/).
Assault articles were posted this week, both from sites based in
Europe: a preview from Jolt (http://www.jolt.co.uk/index.php?articleid=3671)
and a Q&A interview from Boomtown (http://rpg.boomtown.net/en_uk/articles/art.view.php?id=8041).
Finally, the Gamespy video featuring Auto Assault and the Havok engine in
action is now available on our Downloads/Movies page (http://www.autoassault.com/downloads/movies.html).

Speaking of E3, Bethesda will be there showing off Oblivion.
If anyone from DaC is going to the event, be sure to ask them about
