ABOUT THE BETA
Like explained in the article about the progression of the beta we posted in January, we have been working on a lot of features and improved a lot of existing ones. Compared to the alpha, the beta will have more islands, quests, bosses, techniques, items and more. It will also have new features. The most interesting ones are probably marines global organization and pirates crew alliances. Marines officers will evolve in the same organization and will get higher ranks by doing quests or by being promoted by their superiors. It's a bit different for pirates. They can have their own organization only if they form alliance with other pirate crews.
Alpha players will notice some new little features like the grapple hook system, the shop item preview and mobs having unique ability starting from level 30.
We have also improved a lot of elements like maps, NPCs, spells and game stability. We hope alpha players will be pleased by the game progression.
As the game now has more content, the level cap for the beta is 55.
In order to make the progression feel smoother, we decided to add a level requirement to soul fruits (level 30 or above). Once you have eaten the fruit, the stat linked to your specialization will partially reset so you will be able to change your build.
One concern we had about the alpha fighting system is the lack of skill shots, because of the auto aim feature. To fix that, we decided that auto aim will now slightly decrease attacks and techniques damage.
We would like to thank our Discord community for their support! Without them, the game would not have been in its current state. Special thanks to our publisher, Hitspark, and to the developers of Intersect Engine.
