Our Miner Wars Alphans,

We've finally made it to Beta!  To go along with it we have a video to knock your socks off.  This video will be more intense than any other video we've released thus far. This video will eat into your soul, and leave you praying for more. This video will tear your brain cells apart from your optic nerves, and you'll love every second of it.

So get on the starboard side, and squander not your time getting to see the video. It's Arrr-guably the best trailer we've put out yet, and you'll hear some finalized voices as well as some storyline progression, and you've guessed it... Pirates!  So don't scallywag and get yourself an eye-full of this motion picture. It's nothing to give a wide berth over...
