Mafia City Roleplay Beta Introduction After over a year of development, Mafia City Roleplay will finally be opening the doors to people outside of its staff team! It has been an extremely long journey to get to where we are now, but we hope you will agree that it was well worth the wait. Throughout this post, we will walk you through the planned beta phase for Mafia City Roleplay. An internal date has been set for Beta Phase 1, we will make another announcement when we are ready for Beta Phase 2. Beta Phase 1 (Private) This will last one week and has the possibility to be extended depending on the overall results. We have decided to invite the Los Santos Police Department, the Los Santos Emergency Services, the entire Staff Team, and select media driven individuals to participate at this stage. There are two schools of thought when it comes to BP1 (Beta Phase 1). The first being that it will allow the legal groups to become more familiar with the systems we have created for their use, and to ensure they are ready to provide a service for the general population of Los Santos. The second school of thought is that it will be an open-world extensive test of our systems to prepare us for BP2. Whilst we have no doubt that this will massively increase the hype surrounding the eventual release, we think it is essential that we take the time necessary to ensure that the environment we have created is as polished as possible. For that reason, we are limiting the number of individuals who can attend BP2. Beta Phase 2 (Semi-Public; Application Based) This will last for at least another week, and we will extend an invitation to roughly 100 individuals to join those who participated in Beta Phase 1. BP2 will serve as an even more extensive test of our systems, testing not just the functionality of our features, but also how our systems will behave under a much heavier load. Although we may have worked out a lot of the kinks in BP1 there will still be a lot of work to do and that is something we recognize and embrace. Apply for Beta Phase 2. Development of Mafia City Role Play will not end with the Beta phases, nor with the eventual launch to the public. Development will continue for a long time to come, as we fix any bugs which are discovered, and continue to create exciting and innovative new features, ensuring that Mafia City becomes the best possible Role Play environment.
