This game might have the best slogan ever: "Free to Pray, Free to Prey, Free to Play". A game that features the battle between heaven and hell as the primary theme, a bunch of different classes, and a cool slogan? We might have a FTP MMO on our hands folks. That's an idea that's almost mind-boggling in it's audacity. 

Faxion Online is going into it's second closed beta, and will be selecting a mix of new and existing beta testers to try out all the bug fixes and new content added for this go round. I signed up for the first round but didn't get in. I signed up again so hopefully I'll have better luck this time.

Austin, Texas -February 25, 2011 - Ashes to ashes, dust to dust - as
the eternal battle between heaven and hell continues, and the forces
of Heaven and Hell are recruiting you for the war. UTV True Games
announced today that its combat driven, free to play MMORPG, Faxion
Online, entered the second phase of beta testing. Register at

exclusive keys, news, item giveaways and more.

New players chosen for beta test two, along with existing closed beta
players, will experience all new content, features, bug fixes, and
balancing that was addressed based on valuable feedback from the
community. Some of the key improvements include an all-new user
experience where the Heaven class begins behind the pearly gates, and
the Hell class starts their experience amongst fire and brimstone,
complete with a more intuitive tutorial. The second Closed Beta also
features a polished and rebalanced multi-classing system that clearly
indicates how skills improve through ranks, and how attributes are
distributed as a user invests more in secondary and tertiary classes.
In addition to these major system adjustments, additional content,
maps, and convenience features like teleportation stones have been
added in the latest patch to improve the overall player experience.

"The responses to the first closed beta have been incredible in helping
us determine updates for this second phase," said Frank Lucero, Studio
Head at UTV True Games. "Our community has provided invaluable
feedback and we are looking forward to their response to the latest
content in the second closed beta patch."

Players can side with Heaven or Hell in the relentless struggle for
ultimate domination over the seven deadly sins. With a comical twist,
Faxion Online is one of the first free to play MMORPGs to deliver
aggressive and robust PVP game play and a unique territory control
system that allows the different factions to battle for the fate of
the seven deadly sins. With a unique multi-classing system, players
will have the freedom to play the way they want with achievement and
glory through adventure and combat.

Faxion Online is being developed internally at UTV True Games' Austin,
Texas studio by a group of industry veterans with significant
experience on titles such as Shadowbane, Ultima Online and many other
popular MMORPG's. Faxion Online players can expect to see a
groundbreaking, competitive action game that strips away the typical
experience and leveling grind observed in many MMORPG's today.
