Hedone, the upcoming free-to-play FPS from German studio ACONY, will be entering a closed beta on August 24th. In preparation, the official site has now gone live and is accepting beta applications - so if you're spoiling for some free shooting action, have a go and let us (and ACONY, more importantly) know what you think!
Hedone promises to deliver "a product displaying all the quality of a full-price title free of charge." ACONY has assembled a fifty-strong team of veteran developers (including talent from Realtime Worlds), and reckon that they're set to "reinvent" the genre. We're looking forward to seeing whether the finished article lives up to this ambitious remit.
