Even games that haven’t technically launched yet are getting into the whole pre-holiday MMORPG frenzy. Take Crowfall, for example: Instead of kicking their feet up and sipping the finest of eggnogs, ArtCraft’s team members decided to release Pre-Alpha 5 today. Maybe it’s to impress their Elf on the Shelf.
Testers have a couple of tempting new options to play with this build. Both the Assassin and Human Male Ranger are available to try out, so you’ve got your pick of stabby-stabby or shooty-shooty. Crowfall has also added crafting stations, more keybinding options, the ability to anticipate and chain skills more smoothly, and something called “Wwise implementation.” Actually, this sounds like a good thing: “That will keep others’ sounds quieter than your own and support sound dropoff.”
