While Hero’s Song might not have raised as much money with its recent Indiegogo campaign as the studio hoped, players who did pay $15 or more into the game did so with the promise of being invited into the Alpha 3 test. The good news for those waiting for this perk is that said alpha is happening very soon — early next week, in fact.
“We are very pleased to announce our Alpha 3 launch for Hero’s Song will be on Monday October 31st,” the team said on Twitter yesterday. According to Steam, the Alpha 3 test will contain 15 of the game’s 21 classes, limited multiplayer, basic dungeons, gods, a loot system, and other test-worthy tools.
John Smedley indicated that this will be a short-duration test: “Early access is still planned for early November. The exact date will be determined after we’ve had a few days of feedback from our Alpha 3 players.”
Earlier this month, the team posted a form that allowed fans to subscribe to a newsletter to stay abreast of all developments in the Hero’s Song universe.
