Posted May 28, 2010 by Michael Bitton

Dawntide Open Beta Begins Monday

Working as Intended's sandbox MMO Dawntide will be entering Open Beta come Monday, May 31st. Keep in mind that the developers will be wiping all existing character data for the Open Beta test, so don't get too attached to you existing characters!

A number of additions will be added to Dawntide (or have been already) on the path to Open Beta, find the details below:

  • A significantly revamped UI with better communication tools, tooltips and an in-game help section to guide new players.
  • North Vynn and the Free Waters, a collection of uninhabitated islands free for players to build on and claim for themselves.
  • Unconsciousness and bleeding mechanics that promotes safety in numbers when hunting.
  • Endurance-based skill gain system that rewards you for pacing yourself instead of macroing and grinding.
  • Cevanti as a selectable race.
  • Many skills such as cooking, hiding and stealth made fully functional.
  • Player markets where players can put up items for sale to fellow players.
  • Boat routes connecting the continents.
