The final closed alpha event for The Exiled has officially kicked off. From today through December 21st, alpha testers and supporters can log in and try out the large number of altered and improved features implemented by the team as a direct result of player feedback from earlier testing opportunities.
Connected, dying game worlds
- In order to accomodate for the large numbers of players expected during the first days of alpha we will create dozens of game worlds for you. Each game world now supports around 150 concurrent players (up from 50 during the last Alpha). We will also add more server locations - likely in Brazil and South-East Asia. Of course we will keep our existing server locations in the EU and the US.
- Game worlds now require an active player base to defend against daily attacks on the valley. If players on one game world do not manage to donate enough resources to the defense, this world dies and all players on it will migrate as refugees to a different, more active game world.
- This will change up clan politics a lot during the course of the Alpha. This also leads to a bunch of additional changes that we’ll show you in our next update on the blog. Sneak-preview: Clans and leaderboards are now global so you can now challenge the best of the best wherever you play.
To celebrate the final push before beta, The Exiled team has released a brand new trailer and other update notes.
