Ubisoft's free-to-play dungeon crawler The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot has gone into open beta. Anybody can sign up and start playing through Steam, the game's official website or Uplay.

In The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, players choose a hero from four different classes and raid other players' castles in search of treasure and glory. To build a castle, you select trap placement and enemy spawn locations, then publish your personalized gauntlet online through the game's built-in social network. Each castle run culminates in some sort of boss encounter and, if the baddy is bested, a treasure room full of riches.

After being criticized for The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot's microtransaction elements in last year's closed beta, developer Ubisoft Montreal stripped all pay-to-win elements from the game. The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is currently only available on Windows PC.

THE MIGHTY QUEST FOR EPIC LOOT NOW IN OPEN BETA

London, UK – February 26, 2014 – Today, Ubisoft® announced that The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is welcoming all players into its open beta on Steam and on PC. The game is now accessible to everyone willing to stockpile gold, loot neighbours' chests and brag about maniacal castle defenses in their quest to become the undisputed master of Opulencia.
To kick off the permanent opening of the kingdom in the skies, The Runaway is officially joining the quest. Experienced looters as well as newcomers will enjoy her striking speed that gives her a clear edge during combat. This rocker girl shows no mercy when it comes to hacking and slashing; she rocks the axe like nobody else.
Adding to the slew of new features launching today, five Diamond packs are now available for players looking to get a head start in the game. The Runaway will be available with the Attacker Pack, the Trio Combo and the Ultimate Pack for players looking to get their hands on Opulencia's newest looter.
Players, beware: in Opulencia no one should sleep easy, especially since the new Defense Mode with Open Creation is at work. Closed-beta revealed how imaginative looters could be when their precious treasure was threatened and to spice up the variety of castle defense options, Open Creation was put into place. Of course, Open Beta is just the beginning of the adventure, as the Mighty Quest will only keep evolving and improving over time.
