Hail all, xenos, infidels, heretics, demi-gods and assorted immortals. Winter is coming to Montreal. My son keeps emptying my credit card on Steam to buy hats and skins. The team didn’t like my idea of Slaanesh day, instead of Hawaiian shirt day. With those important updates out of the way, we have some minor updates to share. Eternal Warriors enter the battlefield It’s November and we wanted to try to get Warriors in to Closed Alpha by the end of it. We’re going to make it all happen now, where you will effectively double the population on our servers, a really nice stress test and have everything explode. GO TURBO. Some Founders will think, more blood for the blood god, others will be less comfortable jumping into the fray with a lot of seasoned players. Incidentally, that’s what the feedback forum is for. How do you actually fare against seasoned players, whether you are a seasoned shooter player or not? Balance matters, skill matters, blood matters. We want to know how horizontally balanced we are right now. Well, we’re not balanced at all compared to the final outcome many months from now obviously but this is a unique opportunity where we’re doubling the playerbase by adding all the warriors at the same time so it’s equal new players and equal older players. Let’s use it. And try to blow up the servers as well. On the horizon of slaughter Our cleverness does have its intended effect sometimes. More than we’d like. The reason we entered into a Closed Alpha this early is to get you into the feedback loop early, and let you be part of the development team. We’re also pushing out updates at regular intervals. This does blow up as intended, ironically this time due to the introduction of the Melta Bomb. All the servers. We have now tested out 3 maps, 3 game modes, added Blood Angels and Night Lords, Plasma Cannon, Plasma Pistol, Power Sword and Power Axe and feature updates. We are going back to forcing in the Melta Bomb; testing an updated version of the Promethium map, while we ready ourselves for a brand new map, the Storm Bolter, and even a new class. Join us in the Slaughter. We don’t just need you to fuel the war. We need you to satiate our bloodlust. Streamers, steamers, surveys, coverage and the NDA While we’d love to open up the Closed Alpha forums to expose you to the awesome first impressions thread that has 611 posts, the entire Closed Alpha forum that has 20,590 wonderful feedback posts or show you our Closed Alpha surveys with all the love, we can’t just yet. What we can do is point you towards the media coverage which has been published lately and our initiative to allow Founders and seasoned streamers to get out from NDA. Angry Joe was the first to stream without NDA with his subtle charm and enticing smile and now we have a whole list of allowed streamers, ranging from Founders to Press. There are also interviews now and coming up accessible here. So while the NDA is still in effect, check out these sources for information, including of course our weekly Twitch. Now come join us, because at our development velocity, I think we’ll be on Steam Early Access faster than expected. Isn’t that the best way to get more skulls for the skull throne?
