Skyforge open beta due out this summer

Who do you pray to when you're the deity? Do you say 'oh my' a lot?

Ready to rock with the gods in Skyforge but not ready to pay for a founder’s pack? You won’t have to wait much longer. An exact date for the open beta (i.e., the launch for all intents and purposes) hasn’t yet been announced, but it’s going to be some time this summer, which is only a scant few months away. That means new players can jump in and players with founder’s packs can enjoy all the benefits those bring.

To commemorate the announcement, a new trailer has been released for the game and is embedded just past the break. Keep your eyes peeled for more beta testing events before the doors are finally flung open.

They didn’t publish exact date and the article look like an attempt to distract public from Russian F2P launch today (client has partial English translation) – which is actually very fun. People reported 12000 long queues (they’ve moved fast though). Nonetheless I’ll play international version later because I want paid options and Russian payment system refuse to take my money 8-)

I bought the top level founder’s pack because I wanted to try out the gunner. Here are my thoughts:

Currently a somewhat shallow game, but quite a bit of fun in a kill and move sort of way.
Voice acting is atrocious, but we are still in beta, so I figure they are working on all of that currently.
Environments are STUNNING!
Animations are VERY well done.
To me the game feels like a mash of Warframe/Neverwinter Nights/Tabula Rasa/Destiny All put into a blender and placed on puree. All in all a very interesting mix.
The game is something you can quickly hop into and play for 30 mins before work, or a marathon session if you have the time and you would still feel like you are progressing.
It feels like it was crafted for a console, even though the Xbone controller cannot be programmed with the keybinds.

All in all, I feel satisfied with my purchase thusfar, and if it gets better between now and release, I can see myself losing some hours in it. If you have an extra $20 lying around, it would be worth dropping it on the game to try everything out.

sonicblue31 In many f2p games the p2w aspects have no effect on most people. If you’re just going to mess around with the content and not worry about who;s the best, getting caught up in all that nonsense can often just keep you from enjoying a good game.

I plan to play this regardless of what people are complaining about. Cash shops almost never have a direct impact on my experience. Of course if it’s really bad I wont support the game and wont spend money, but I’ll still try it and try to enjoy my time in it.

The game looks ready, plays good and is already open beta in RU, what is the reason to wait several month ? Just for the chance of selling more founder packs?

I’ve scene people use the phrase plenty without being banned. I think you might be exaggerating

I don’t care how the cash shop turns out, p2w or not. Won’t make much of a difference to me. The game is just fun to play, and that’s all I care about

Just don’t say “Pay to win” in there forums, you will actually get banned for using that phrase! Censorship aside all the gameplay I have seen looks extremely… well, bad. From previous videos shown here I though it was some of the worst dialog I have ever seen.
