PlayXpert, provider of next-generation in-game community management tools for all PC and MMO gamers, today officially launched its Open Beta which includes hundreds of new features that resulted from gamer feedback over the past 15 months.
“We have invested a tremendous amount of time and energy in making our in-game platform solid for our users,” said Charles F. Manning, President/CEO of PlayXpert. “Changes include new features and widgets, enhanced usability, a new product skin, and performance enhancements across the overall system.”
PlayXpert is a completely customizable platform giving gamers, game developers, and the modding community the power to build new in-game widgets without the engineering challenge of developing in-game overlay. PlayXpert has published its widget application programming interface (API) so that community-built widgets can be delivered for its ecosystem.
