Win a Pre-Alpha Key with The FoundationJanuary 18th, 2018 at 5:37 pm
Take part in community contests and drawings to climb up The Foundation even faster. At the top? A GAME KEY!
Hi, fellow gamer and MMO enthusiast!
In this fourth iteration, we’re giving you a much, much bigger chance. The chance to get…
…A PRE-ALPHA KEY!
That’s right folks – through The Foundation, you can now get a key to test out Fractured, absolutely for free.
How? When? What?
THE FRACTURED PRE-ALPHA
The Fractured Pre-Alpha is a time-limited testing phase to be run at the end of 2018 before the launch of Alpha 1. Its main purpose is to weed out any major issues that might exist in the game to allow for a smooth launch of Alpha 1. It may last any time between one and a few weeks.
The Pre-Alpha will be restricted to a small number of players – only the most dedicated ones, since it’s all about testing (while having fun too, of course). The measure of this dedication is… Your level in The Foundation!
How to get a key?
Alpha & Beta: our future Kickstarter campaign (and after that, our web store) will feature packs that grant one or more keys giving access to Fractured at different stages of development.
Pre-Alpha: through The Foundation only, by reaching the level that holds the key as reward. What the exact level is will be revealed later on.
Is access permanent?
Alpha & Beta: it is. For instance, if a key grants access to Alpha 3, the account using it gets access to Alpha 3, all the following Alpha and Beta phases, and full release.
Pre-Alpha: it’s not. A Pre-Alpha key only grants access to the Pre-Alpha.
Will there be an NDA?
Alpha & Beta: absolutely not. On the contrary, everyone will be invited to stream and share game content.
Pre-Alpha: yes. It will be strictly forbidden to disclose any game content.
NEW REWARD TIERS
While perhaps secondary when compared to the Pre-Alpha key, we’re sure you won’t mind the 10 new tiers of reward this updates added to The Foundation!
The new tiers grant rewards up to level 150, featuring some classics and some new additions, such as:
- The Trained Wolf Mount, an exciting evolution of the Feral Wolf Mount that can be obtained at level 35. It changes form according to the race of its rider: armored and regal for Humans, wild and shamanic for Beastmen, dark and frightening for Demons!
- The Fire Fendyr Companion. You loved the cuteness of your Fendyr? It now gets blazing paws and tail – still adorable, but with more character!
- Bronze Founder Chests. Every time you open one in game, you get one out of 8 possible Rare skins for your weapons, armors, pets, and more!
- Three new titles: Diplomat, Ambassador and General Ambassador. The previous instance of the Ambassador title has been renamed to Legate.
- Other 750 Dynamight Gold, the future premium currency of Fractured, that you’ll be able to spend in game to purchase plenty of stunning vanity items.
NEW WAYS TO GET POINTS
Since the Pre-Alpha Key is planned as a very high-tier reward, it would be unfair not to give you the opportunity to get Foundation Points faster. How? Just by generating quality content in the community and helping spread the word about Fractured!
Have a look at this thread on our forums to find out what the new Weekly Drawings are, what types exist, and how many thousands of points you can win!
As promised in the last iteration of The Foundation, we’ve added a couple functionalities to the website as well, such as a few new emblems for your guild banners and the possibility to see the ranking of the largest guilds in the leaderboard. Also, if the forum becomes unavailable again for maintenance, you will no longer see your level in The Foundation decrease until it’s back up.
Since many of you dear followers made us notice that our blog updates are a tad too infrequent, we’ve revised our schedule to deliver them at a whole new pace. In the coming weeks, we’re aiming to deliver 3-4 new updates per month (be them Feature Spotlights, iterations of The Foundation, or Public Sprint Recaps), instead of the current 1-2.The next one specifically, coming next week, is going to be a dev journal covering character creation, the six attributes and resting.
See you soon and, as always, don’t forget to let us hear your voice on our community boards and social media!
