5TH Cell are now accepting applications for the closed beta for their upcoming XBLA release, Hybrid,over at Whatishybrid.com. The sign-ups originally back in March around the 20th had some intermittent problems with e-mail verification according to a few tweets to @5THCell, but all seems to be rectified now.
Hybrid is a pioneering third person shooter set in the near future, where global conflict exists between a species known as the Variant and a rebel human faction known as the Paladins. 5TH Cell strives to give players a completely new gameplay experience never seen before in the genre.
In 2032 a newly built Hadron Supercollider imploded, obliterating Australia. The world was sent into turmoil as an alternate reality collided with our own and from it emerged a species known as the Variant. Chaos ensued and world war broke out between the Variants and a group of rebel humans known as the Paladins.
The XBLA Game boasts Massive online world war with an intense 3v3 Air and Ground combat at 60FPS at 720p with 10 different maps and modes with tons of weapons and abilities.
Beta keys will be distributed closer to the actual Beta test in late April. Keys will be distributed in what seems to be common staggered rounds with increasing numbers of playtesters. 5TH Cell only determines whether potential testers are game developers or members of the press during sign-ups, so prior experience and other pieces of demographic information are not factors in determining the likelyhood of getting a key.
Players who recruit friends to the Beta will be awarded an exclusive golden helmet when they activate the full version of Hybrid after its release this summer., 5TH Cell says Hybrid will be available this summer.
