Playable Build to be Released to Backers Soon

Playable Build to be Released to Backers Soon -

The Shards Online team has announced that a fully playable version of the game that is still in its KickStarter infancy will be made available to backer ssoon. Those who choose to back the game will have access as soon as the campaign completes and will receive three months of subscription time.


If you back us, you get to play the game in a matter of weeks. No waiting, no wondering if the game may never come out. This has NEVER been done before on Kickstarter for an online game. All backers ($20 and above pledge-level) will get a CD key when funding completes to participate in a series of pre-alpha playtests that will take for 2 weeks starting shortly after the campaign. Members of the Immortals Program get these 2 weeks and beyond.


Not only will you get to watch, but you will get a chance to play. All backers ($20 and above pledge-level) will get a chance to participate in live events in-game during the campaign that will be streamed live on Twitch. We will randomly select participants from the pool of backers for each event. Our first livestream will be Battle of the Backers and is happening this Saturday, May 24th at 4pm EDT. In this game-show style event, we will put backers head-to-head in the pre-alpha build in a last man standing fight to the death. There will be super sweet prizes for the victors. May the odds be ever in your favor.
