FAQ / PLAYTESTING
1. HOW IS FRACTURED TESTING STRUCTURED?
The development of Fractured is split into 2 periods of time, called development cycles: Alpha and Beta. The current development cycle is Alpha.
Within each development cycle, 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 and Beta) 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 an Adept pack (€24.99) that gives you access to Beta, you can upgrade to Master (€49.99) to get Alpha access for €25 (€49.99-€24.99).
4. WHEN IS THE NEXT TEST STARTING?
The next test is starting in Q1 2022. The exact launch date is yet to be decided.
From the beginning of the next test, servers are going to be online 24/7, with regular patches adding new features and content. No more downtimes!
5. HOW LONG DO TESTS LAST?
The duration of testing phases becomes longer the closer the game gets to full release. The Winter Alpha 2021 is expected to last for 1 month 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.
