Timed Events[edit]

Playtest Server Events[edit]

There is a PTS(Private/Public Test Server) version for the game where the developers have players test unreleased content 1 - 2 weeks before it's shipped to the live build. The signup is public and applications are approved as early as 48 hours before the test event starts. If a player's applications are accepted they will receive a code they must redeem in the Epis Games Store to unlock the PTS version, they then have to download the game. Even when downloaded the game is unplayable unless the PTS servers are active during the event times.

The playtests are streamed by the devs and other players, there is no NDA on this version of the game.
