The team cites a couple of reasons as to why they’re opening the game to all backers:
“Our new early game experience (starting area + tutorial) wasn’t live yet during the open playtest we’ve run in February, so we haven’t had the chance to stress-test it yet. A certain virus is messing with humanity these days, and we know a lot of you are forced to stay home – just like us. This will hopefully make isolation feel a little better ??”
The event starts on Friday, April 10 at 10a ET and will run through Sunday, April 19. Note that after this time, access will be dialed down back to Legend Pack backers or higher.
Additionally, April 12 is set to include a Q&A live stream with CEO, Jacopo Gallelli. You can catch the live stream on the Oxfurd’s Twitch Channel at 1p ET on April 12.
