Darewise Entertainment is accepting players who are interested to be part of a pre-Alpha test for the studio's upcoming open-world multiplayer game. Right now, the only name the game has is Project C.

Darewise is a new studio led by CEO Benjamin Charbit. Charbit was once the lead on Assassin’s Creed, and was responsible for putting together an all-star team of development talent that included the likes of Dishonored and Half-Life 2 design director Viktor Antonov. Currently the team is focusing on open world gaming and has entered into a partnership with Improbable in order to make use of its SpatialOS development platform.

The yet unnamed Project C is the first game that the company is developing, and as such cannot yet offer a release date. However, the team believes that the play test that is to be conducted is the first of what are clearly to be many community-focused and extensive updates and tests.

According to the developer, the game being created allows players access to a persistent open-world multiplayer experience. Here they can join clans, build societies and ultimately explore what appears to be an abandoned planet named Corvus. Corvus serves as the focus of the game, and is a world that is rich in resources, exotic wildlife, and powerful technology.

Darewise revealed that this is not your typical play test. Players who are interested to be part of this project need to take a survey first. Once they are approved, they need to undergo the onboarding process which includes, among other things, a live video chat with one of the members of the Darewise development team.

While there is no video yet of the planned game, Darewise has shared some of the concept art and the open world so far looks good.

CEO Charbit revealed that Darewise is inviting a select group of players to join at such an early stage of development since they believe that “[p]layers are always at the center of a great multiplayer gaming experience.” He added that the greatest of adventures usually happens with friends and this is why Project C hopes “to give players a truly dynamic open-world gaming experience to play with and compete against one another.”

For Chief Technical Officer Samuel Khan, developing a world class video game not only needs a standout vision, but should also have a great team behind it and a lot of technical knowledge. In addition, many of the best games today have a deep connection to their respective communities. He went on to say that in order for them “to reach the vision and goals we’ve set for Project C, we’re going to need players to join us on this adventure and help us make an entirely new open world experience.”
