Another update for the character/costume creator beta

From Consultant:
During the upcoming character creator beta, we're going to give participants an option to run around the city and explore. Some buildings will be open, including one building in the Warehouse District, and of course Ivar & Sons Auction House. But also we'll allow people to jump into the hospital lobby and poke around, and in addition we're going to have a nightclub with a hidden entrance, called the Beta Club.
There'll be a badge for finding the entrance and getting into the club. It's not quite finished, but it is looking pretty darn good.
Shinies! One thing I did like doing in City of Heroes was running around collecting badges. We'll be getting them in Ship of Heroes too :)

So far, the only information we have regarding the date of the character/costume creator beta is that it's pencilled in for the end of August. This isn't a firm date so be sure to check back here (or the official SoH site) regularly.

As far as I know, all you need to do to qualify for the character/costume creator beta is have donated enough towards the development of Ship of Heroes to have reached the 'Stylish' level - that' means having donated at least 50 US Dollars. And, yes, donations made over any period of time on the same account accumulate.
