With the beginning of the first phase of closed beta testing fast approaching, many people are wondering what will be focused on in terms of game play and mechanics testing.
With two phases currently planned for closed beta testing, the first phase will focus primarily on the following aspects of Forsaken World:
- First half of phase 1 - Content up to level 29. Second half - Content up to level 30. Characters will be capped at this point during phase 1.
- Starting zones for all races
- Basic guild functions
- Beginner pets and pet functions
- Crafting and refining
- All UI elements
Phase 2 will broaden the horizons a little bit, with content up to level 50 being accessible. The following aspects of Forsaken World will then be open for testing:
- Guild Wars
- Arena Battles
- Cash Shop enabled (players will be provided cash shop currency for free during this phase)
- Advanced guild functions
- Advanced pet functions
Tentatively, these beta phases are slated to last around 3 to 4 weeks a piece. As a we get closer to the launch of the open beta, more and more players will be allowed access to the closed beta for testing purposes. Eventually, all players will have the opportunity to play during a closed beta phase.
Closed beta phase 1 begins on October 27th. We thank everyone for their patience in waiting for the start date of the Closed beta! The wait will be worth it!
