Das Tal is due for a new round of alpha testing “for all testers” come April.
Fairytale Distillery’s Game Direct Alexander Zacherl explained to fans today that the takeaway from the game’s November alpha test was that the game is just not ready for a full launch — yet. “While a good number of players enjoyed themselves intensely, too many of our testers stopped playing too early and especially newbies were churning left and right,” he wrote.
Consequently, the team is plotting a number of playthrough incentives and accessibility features that’ll be prepped for April’s alpha test, among them server end events, caravan raids, clan management tools, and game systems for goals, opportunities, emotes, and flagging. Siege and gear progression are getting revamps, as are mechanics like large-fight stability and skill balances. It’s a tall order for the spring!
