Report article RSS Feed It's Here! Closed Beta Releaqse Dates!

Finally, we've decided the right dates for launching Closed Beta Test of City of Steam. So sure to clear your schedule if you are interested in trying it out all straight from your browser on Nov. 16.

Posted by CoS_Ethan on Oct 31st, 2012

Our countless hours of caffeinated game development are finally paying off! We are very pleased to announce the finalized dates of the Closed Beta Test for City of Steam, which will take place between November 16th and December 28th!

The test will be divided into 4 seasons:

Springtide (Nov. 16th to 20th)
Summercrest (Nov. 30th to Dec. 4th)
Autumnwane (Dec. 14th to 18th)
Winter Festival (Dec. 23 to 28th)

This is to ensure that all constructive feedback from our testers will be duly paid attention to and we will have ample time to make modifications while continue adding features between the seasons.

Now we know what you’re thinking. “Seasons? Does this mean character wipes like in Alpha?” (How did we know you’d ask that? We asked the Oracle of course) Well, it depends; if whatever needs fixing requires a character wipe (for balance and compatibility reasons), then we will have no choice. However, we do want you to reach those high levels, too, so we’ll try not to have to resort to that if it can be avoided.

The Beta test will bring in a slew of new features, smoother gameplay, improved framerates, and more! There will be Beta key giveaway campaigns in the coming weeks so keep your eyes peeled for updates on the site (yes, we will let you know about them)! If you prefer to ensure your access (and support us at the same time), while getting a hoard of other awesome extras (like character name reservation, Electrum, extra keys for friends, to name a few), get yourself a Beta Collaborator Pack! Remember the more support we get in these comings weeks the more we’ll add as a bonus to the game. You can check out our Steam-o-meter here.

And contests? You bet. We’ll have more on these later, so stay tuned!

Be sure to drop us a line and tell us what you think in the Forums.
