If you’re still sad about Darkfall: Unholy Wars’ abrupt maintenance mode or Darkfall: New Dawn’s public indev soft-launch didn’t do it for you, Darkfall: Rise of Agon is going to give you one more crack at falling back in love with the game.
Big Picture Games says that its closed beta will launch this Friday, enhanced with a UI upgrade, new player experience adjustements, and quality of life changes.
“Upon server opening our new security enhancements will be implemented along with our first game design patch named Low-Development/High-Impact 1 (LDHI 1),” writes the studio. “To allow us to gather as much feedback as possible on these initial changes, and to compensate for us moving directly into Closed Beta, the first 14 days of Closed Beta will be free to all users. After the free period ends on August 19th, 2016, anyone with a Founder Pack will have full access to the remainder of this testing phase.” The cheapest founder pack will run you just a hair under $20.
