Mechanist Games has announced a closed beta date for its upcoming City of Steam title. Well, sort of. A new post on the game's website spends three paragraphs leading up to the word November, but it doesn't mention a specific day.
The post also mentions that the devs are combing through reams of alpha feedback from the recently completed testing phase, and it suggests that you keep an eye on the CoS forums and your inbox if you're itching to get into beta.
City of Steam is a free-to-play browser-based MMO based on a series of steampunk-flavored RPG books.
