When Fractured hits its first alpha phase on April 10th, it will be the first time "high tier" backers of the game will be able to get in and try it out for themselves and, best of all, it will not be covered by an NDA during its weeklong duration. Backers at the Knight level and higher will have access to Test 1, with a second testing phase coming in Q2 2019 and possibly open to more players.
4. What are the most notable missing features in Alpha 1 – Test 1?
The Knowledge System is likely the largest one. Instead of being able to learn new abilities, you’ll be given a spellbook with a couple dozens already available for testing purposes. The other big absentee are Towns, Governors & Politics: for now, you’re just able to claim your own personal plot of land.
Of course, there are plenty of other relevant parts of the game missing: the party system, guilds, (most) monster loot, (most) monster abilities, trading between players, etc.
