Next Closed Beta Event Dated for June 23-29

Next Closed Beta Event Dated for June 23-29 - and Obsidian Entertainment have announced that the next Skyforge Closed Beta event will run from Jun 23rd through June 29th. Players will gain access to two more classes: The Knight and the Alchemist.

Players will be able to see in action several major changes made as a direct result of player feedback in previous closed beta tests.

  • (During the test only) Exclusive instant access to two high-tier classes, Knight and Alchemist – Players will get a chance to try two high tier classes available only in the upper ascension atlas: the Knight – a powerful tank class armed with a shield and spear, and the Alchemist – a half-mad scientist support class with mastery of corrosive chemical compounds and invigorating elixirs.

  • Client Optimization – The data collected during the previous CBTs helped to improve the game’s optimization and provide support for more configuration types. The maximum frames per second are now 30% higher than when beta testing began.

  • Orders and Followers – Since this is one of the most important parts of the game, the development team has put a lot of effort into improving the user experience and as a result, managing followers and their resources has been improved.

  • PVE and PVP adventures

    • Big changes were made for different aspects of gameplay. The difficulty level of adventures now can be chosen by the player after they’ve unlocked them. There will be no more prestige limitations between players who want to participate in adventures as a group, with players receiving rewards based on the range of the group’s prestige.

    • Grouping with others for adventures is now easier than ever, with recently vacated spots being automatically filled with new players during the adventure. Players can now automatically search for others interested in tackling PVE adventures, so if players don’t have a group they can choose to be matched with others automatically. For 5-man group adventures, pre-formed groups can now enter regardless of class makeup.

    • In PvP, the matchmaking system has optimized how players are grouped for battle in order to make it easier to find matches.

  • Ascension Atlas – The Ascension Atlas has been changed in order to promote a more streamlined experience, allowing the upper portions of the Atlas to be unlocked by players sooner, enabling them to more quickly progress towards other classes. The interface of the Ascension Atlas has also been changed to be much cleaner and easier to look at.

  • Classes

    • Along with the addition of three new classes, progression through each class has been streamlined to enable players to progress while still progressing through the upper layers of the Ascension Atlas.

    • Outside of the initial talents and abilities, classes now use their own unique class sparks to progress. This way you no longer need to choose between advancing one class or progressing towards others.

  • Pantheons – Pantheons are now available, allowing players to create their own or join others. Many of the features Pantheons provide will not be accessible in the timeframe of the closed beta test. Those will be in the upcoming open beta test!

  • Equipment – During previous closed beta tests players showed an interest in being able to acquire additional pieces of equipment.  With that in mind, Amulets and Trophies have been added to the game to create four and two new equipment slots respectively.

  • Portal – Skyforge’s new, all-inclusive web interface, the portal, provides integration with the game, including a forum, chatting with players that are in the game, viewing player items or equipment, a talent calculator, managing your Order, and more. While not all of these features will be readily available during closed beta testing they will be made accessible during open beta testing.

  • UI – A large portion of the UI has seen changes to improve readability. Some of these changes include the Skill, Order, Equipment and Options menus.

  • Chat – The chat system is now more in line with the chat systems found in other games, resulting in a much simpler and user friendly chat experience.

  • Character creation – Character creation has seen many additions and general fine tuning for personalizing your character. Some of these additions include the ability to select a voice for your character and choose from a variety of facial tattoos.
