Universal Monsters Online Opens Beta Sign-Up, New Artwork Released

Universal Monsters Online has entered a closed beta testing period and developer Bigpoint is allowing the public to sign-up for a chance to try the game early. We also have a new piece of promotional artwork from the game, featuring your favorite Universal Monsters.

Bigpoint – a worldwide leader in online games – today announced that Universal Monsters Online has entered closed beta, and is now accepting player registrations to access the game before its global open beta launch. Developed in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, Universal Monsters Online is a fast-paced, free-to-play Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game that brings together Universal’s iconic monsters into one competitive experience.

“We’re excited to have players jump into the closed beta of Universal Monsters Online,” said Billy Delli-Gatti, Producer, Bigpoint. “During this phase, we’re able to test and optimize the game for improvements, and the community feedback we receive will help to ensure that the game is fun and entertaining.”

Universal Monsters Online pits the brand’s iconic cast of monsters into a “winner-take-all” timed gameplay session where two opposing teams claw and gouge their way across a richly-detailed game environment to achieve the ultimate victory: raiding enemy territory to locate the damsel and returning her to the team’s fortress.

During the closed beta, players will be whisked into character selection mode where they can choose from a diabolical lineup of legendary monsters – Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and of course, Frankenstein’s monster among many others. Full-team cooperation will be demanded to survive, succeed, and defeat the town’s chaotic villagers, zombies, and seemingly indestructible turrets.

Registration for Universal Monster Online’s exclusive closed beta before its worldwide release can be found at: http://www.UniversalMonstersOnline.com/. In the following weeks, Bigpoint will increasingly unlock new player accounts for gamers to experience their favorite classic Universal Monsters in a refreshing new MOBA.
