    Hello @ClassicJump as of yet there is no set date for the beta but expect around summer of 2019

    So there is no way i can try it ? not even alpha or something ?

    well you can join the alpha 2 test but for that, you need the Voyager Plus pack but that costs $375 it really does depend on how much you want to play the alpha.

    The $250 pack will get you access to Alpha 2 as well.

    Wont all registered users get access to the "Apocalypse" mode in 2-4 weeks?
  • JahlonJahlon Member alpha-stress-tester
    Within 2-4 weeks everyone will get access to the BR part of Apoc.

    Then at the end of December the A1 backers will get access to castle sieges.  30 days after they get access, everyone with a registered account will get to play.

    Then at the end of march same thing with Horde Mode.   

    After that A1P2 will start and will look like a traditional MMORRPG.

    The Betas will be very short, not these Asian import Betas that last for months.  These Betas will be very targeted for testing not promotion.

    Launch "before 2020" still on schedule.

    I thought it was just people with alpha 1 and 2 packs?

    Nope, the new action combat testing experience dubbed Apocalypse will be free for anyone who has registered on the website once it goes active. Most likely after the website account integration and upgrade has occurred. Enjoy.

    As others have said, there will be a bunch of free testing available over the coming months/year and access to the alphas and betas is purchased through the shop. Take a look around and read up on what each of the various stages looks like and decide what you're looking for. There are a lot of options.

    Welcome to the forums! If you have any more specific questions there are tons of folk here who are happy to help.

    Welcome to the community!
    While these early phases are open to everyone registered, one note of caution. They are fun, but they are not the mmo they are planning. These early testing phases are just that, for testing combat. So, if you want to test out the actual mmo for any period of time, you will need to gain access to at least the Alpha 2, since Steven said the betas will NOT be months long, but very short.
