Ember Sword prepares to reveal their world to a larger audience with an open alpha playtest in April! No token or NFT ownership required for this alpha. Players need only register an account on the Ember Sword website.
Ember Sword Open Alpha Playtest
This playtest will be limited — only open on April 18th and 19th, 2023, from 10am CEST until 23:59 CEST each day. Players will be placed in a queue to join when the game opens, and let in on a first come, first served basis. In addition, each player is limited to 30 minutes of playtime in order to give other players a chance to try out the alpha.
The team promises a series of five quests for this alpha, each one previewing a different part of the gameplay. The quests provide an introduction to the game and include PvE combat, resource collection, crafting, puzzle solving, and a PvP arena. Players will also have a chance to explore the open game world, fighting enemies and discovering secrets and hidden areas!
The Ember Sword team is very interested to hear player feedback form this alpha test and will send out a link to a feedback form afterwards. As an added incentive, participants who fill out feedback form have a chance to win an Ember Sword merch pack.
What is Ember Sword?
Ember Sword is a free-to-play, open world, fantasy game currently in development. Ember Sword offers PvP in the Outlaw Zones, as well as PvE options, including multiplayer dungeons. The game promises an MMORPG experience with nation-based resources, a caravan system for transportation, collectibles, cosmetic items and more! The game also features land ownership system where land plots exist as NFTs. Land owners can upgrade their lands and earn income when players visit.
Most in-game items that provide player bonuses won’t be NFTs. However, all cosmetic collectibles will be limited edition release and also have historical records of their use and ownership, making each one truly unique! The game runs in a class-free leveling system. Skills level up as you use them, unlocking new abilities along the way, allowing players to choose their own path based on their playstyle.
Ember Sword plans to release their own token, Ember. Ember will live on the Ethereum blockchain as an ERC-20 token and see use for marketplace transactions, to purchase limited use consumables, or pay for subscription services. Though Ember Sword is free to play, they plan to offer perks for those willing to pay for a subscription. This could include things such as extra bank slots, exclusive titles, and collectible airdrops.
Ember Sword migrated to the Immutable X system in 20222. To learn more about Ember Sword, visit their website and follow them on Twitter. They also release weekly updates every Wednesday on their Discord server, often showcasing new concept art and in-game screenshots.
