Hey guys, Damokles here.

For everyone who wants to play Apoc and has not known this:
You will have to uninstall your currently installed version and redownload it on the 19th from the website OR STEAM.

Just throwing it in here. ;)

    thanks for this i was wondering this very question yesterday.
  • When do you think the MMO will start having open tests. Like the testing that crowfall is in right now?

    Looking forward to trying Apop though.

    @bmwpower603 Would be very surprised if the MMO has any open testing. They sold very expensive packages to 10s of thousands of people that had that testing access in it. Making it free for the MMO would cause them a lot of grief. Could happen though, they have changed their mind on things in the past and currently.

    I will need to purchase one of these packages. The question is, when will we be able to play the game with purchase of the package? I’d be more likely to buy the package sooner if I had an official date that I could play the game.

    As it stands now, there is no plan to have open testing for the MMORPG.

    But everything is Subject to Change™

    Intrepid will come up with a new launcher for APOC, and on Steam as well.
    So, will the MMORPG still be available on the same launcher or will they create a new launcher?
    Because Intrepid said they will not launch the mmorpg on steam and will not support it further on steam.
    (Only APOC)

    So why should i download it on Steam, if i aim in the future to play the MMORPG.

    APOC is a standalone product of Intrepid the MMORPG will have a different launcher.

    Some people just REALLY like steam ;D
    You will link your Intrepid Account with the steam account, so i would imagine that they will integrate things like your friendslist from steam etc in APOC.

    It's also a really good form of visibility for the game.

    Not sure if people noticed, but Steam is fairly popular these days.
  • Negative Reviews INCOMING !!!

    This was posted on April 30th of 2019 (about 3.5 months ago) 1 billion total accounts and over 90 million active users. I would say that is the reason they are putting APOC on Steam.

  • Yes for JUST for testing reasons :P

    Only 90 million active users monthly? This seems low to me. Do they mean concurrent or accounts active within a certain time frame of that month?

  • Hopefully Apoc isn't much bigger then it was last year.. I'd really like to run it off a ram-drive again...
