I got a invite from Cryptic to Legacy of Romulus Closed BETA testing. And since there is no NDA, I can share a few things you you.
There is a new interface design, and if you read the STO dev blogs you would know more about it than I do.
The character creation is as extensive as we know it from before, but the only race so far I can chose playing as Romulan, no Remans?
The saga starts in a farming colony that is attacked by some one / some "things" (drones) working with or for the Tal Shiar.
Why the attacks? we learn that many other colonies suffered at the hands of the Tal Shiar, is still a mistery. I haven't progressed that much.
Here are a few screenshots I took:
|new loading screen|
|new character selection screen - looks awesome|
|creating my romulan|
|now I go to the stars|
|colonists in distress|
|Tal Shiar warbird and an unknown ship/species allied with them|
