Priming for Alpha with New Content & Alpha Preview Weekend -

As Shards Online nears the commencement of the Alpha phase of development, the team is ready to update the pre-alpha with Release 5 that bring a number of new systems into the game that pave the way for the milestone alpha launch in the near future.

To get everyone on the same page and starting from the same point, a full pre-alpha server wipe will go into effect prior to Release 5.

Here's what's in store for Release 5:

  • Player Parties and Group Looting.
  • Fishing - Who is going to be the first to catch a rare Golden Aetherfish?
  • The Prizm Lounge - Founders Tier VIP Club with Exclusive Items / Quests
  • (PvP) Criminal System - Risk vs reward through criminal and murderer player flags.
  • (PvP) Guild Allegiance - Pledge yours guilds in allegiance to the Gods of Water or Fire and claim victory in their name!
  • (PvP) Combat Balance - major revisions to spells, abilities & damage.
  • New Spells and Combat Abilities: Greater Heal, Poison, Cure, Onslaught, Leap and more.
  • User Interface Overhaul: Mini-map, Containers/Backpacks, Crafting, Skills/Abilities, Guild interface & Buff bar added!
  • And much much more.

The best news is that all expired trial keys will be reactivated on Friday, September 23rd. This allows any former testers to check out Release 5 throughout the entire weekend.
