FAQ / PLAYTESTING
1. HOW IS FRACTURED TESTING STRUCTURED?
The development of Fractured is split into 4 periods of time, called development phases (or cycles). In chronological order, they’re named Alpha 1, Alpha 2, Beta 1, Beta 2. The current development cycle is Alpha 2.
Within each development phase, multiple tests are run, with some downtime between each. More info on the topic can be found below.
2. HOW DO I GET ACCESS TO TESTING?
Access to testing at different stages of development (Alpha 1/2, Beta 1/2) was included as reward in the Pledge Packs of our Kickstarter campaign.
Today, test access that can be obtained directly on our store by purchasing a Founder Pack.
3. CAN I UPGRADE MY ACCESS RIGHTS?
Yes. If you purchase a Founder Pack, you can upgrade it to a higher one (if available) any time paying only the difference between the price of the two.
For instance, if you own a Master pack (€49.99) that gives you access to Beta 1, you can upgrade to Legend (€89.99) to get Alpha 2 access for €40 (€89.99-€49.99).
4. WHEN IS THE NEXT TEST STARTING?
The next test, Alpha 2 - Test 2, is starting on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 4pm CET (10am ET).
5. HOW LONG DO TESTS LAST?
The last test, Alpha 2 - Test 1, was scheduled to run for 2 weeks, but was extended to 1 month. Future tests will last even longer - it's perfectly possible the ones before full release will be online for 3 months or more!
6. IS THERE AN NDA ON PLAYTESTS?
There is no NDA on playtests. You are able to stream, make YouTube videos and spread game content any way you like. In fact, you are invited to do so!
7. I'M A CONTENT CREATOR, CAN I GET ACCESS?
The Fractured Partner Program allows influencers and content creators to get a key that grants permanent access to the game and a link for revenue sharing.
If you signed up to the Fractured Partner Program but nothing is listed, it means your channel isn't large enough to qualify automatically. Please get in touch with email@example.com directly if you're interested in getting access.
