Players eager to jump into Sword Coast Legends won’t necessarily have to wait for the game’s launch on September 29th. The game is hosting a head-start event this weekend for anyone who has pre-ordered the game.
The head-start is only a limited-time run, not a jump on the game’s release as you might expect. It starts tomorrow afternoon and runs until Sunday evening, allowing players to jump into a pre-release build, create campaigns, and enjoy player- and studio-built adventures. The devs warn that not all DM tools will be available during this event.
There will be some carryover to the live game from this event, however. The studio expects that shared campaigns will be available at launch, while reserving judgment for whether or not characters will enjoy the same persistence.
