Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen fans viewing the team demoing the game at TwitchCon this past week were delighted to hear one surprise announcement: the confirmation of a pre-alpha test coming by the end of this year.
“We’re happy to announce today that pre-alpha will be here in time for the holidays,” the team said. However, don’t get too excited thinking that this will open up the game to a large group of players. The buy-in for Pantheon’s pre-alpha is a $1,000 minimum purchase as of right now.
The team spent most of the stream showing off the gameplay and finding new and horrific ways to wipe. “It’s a new game, lot of new features, lot of new ideas,” said Brad McQuaid. “But we’re trying to bring back the social element, the challenge. Most of the content is built around grouping.”
