Want a chance to visit Bethesda's studios and try out some new and upcoming games? Folks in the Dallas/Fort Worth area will be able to do just that as Bethesda has just opened a Play Test Lab at id Software's studios, and volunteers are needed.
According to the Play Tester Application on Bethesda's website, most play test sessions will last an “hour or two” and volunteers will be expected to provide their own transportation. While play testing isn't a paid job, volunteers may have the opportunity to get games and swag in return for their time. Best of all, Bethesda is looking for gamers of all skill levels -- casual or hardcore, you have a chance to get an inside look.
Here are all of the official details:
-You must be 18 to apply and participate in a play test, no exceptions.
-You cannot participate in a play test if you work for a video game developer, or publisher, or if you are journalist that reviews video games.
-You will be required to a sign a non-disclosure agreement and show a valid government issued photo ID evidencing that you are at least 18 years old on the date of the play test.
-You must provide a valid email address when signing up. The email address you give on your application will be used to contact you about play testing opportunities.
-Participation in a play test is strictly on a voluntary basis and is not a paid position, nor does it qualify as employment. You may, however, receive games or swag in connection with your participation in the play test.
-We are looking for players of all skill levels and gaming backgrounds. It is important for us to know how the game feels for everyone, so even if you are not very good at video games you can still apply.
-We are only accepting play tester applications in the US. We are not accepting international applications at this time.
