Camelot Unchained will announce its beta starting date on Monday

Really, that headline is all you truly need to know. After years of development and several delays, City State Entertainment is finally ready to announce the long-awaited start date for Camelot Unchained’s beta on Monday, February 12th.

“As we’ve mentioned in previous updates, we want a date we are confident in that also delivers a great experience for our backers, who simply deserve as much for their enthusiasm and patience,” the team posted. “Earlier today, we came to an agreement on that date after several weeks of hard work, but Mark wanted us to take the weekend to think about it just so we can be as confident as possible with that date.”

In preparing for Beta 1, the team has been auditing the game to make sure that it’s ready to go. Testers have been doing their part to break the game client or stability. This partially took place in the form of 100v100v100 battles that involved both players and bots. According to the team, one player managed to single-handedly bring the game down by dropping armor and 400 siege scorpions all at once.

Hehe, nice.

Why the scenarios when the pvp should be in the open world or is this just for testing?

Reader

I believe this is for testing purposes only

Reader
Rodney Perry

I hope so….I am sick of battle grounds, warfronts, all that kind of rubbish.

Reader
Mark Jacobs

Correct. Scenarios are intended to help us test things more quickly and in a much more focused environment.

Thank you sir 🙏

Now that the beta date will be announced, when will we be getting more details on the crafting system? Oh and a new presentation of the classes and where they are at now would also be appreciated. :)

Reader
Mark Jacobs

Yep, lots more on both coming as we approach the opening of Beta 1.

Ah, so tantalizingly close. You can almost taste it….. which sounds like something you should go to the doctor for.
Going to enjoy being able to test it consistently. We still got a long way to go.

Reader
Mark Jacobs

LOL, nicely said and I completely agree with you.

So is this a closed beta for backers, or an open beta for everyone? I assume it’s subject to wipes and is in no way comparable at this stage of development to early access?

Not my cup of tea, but I wish you guys well with it anyway. Mark’s PvE/PvP games were decent and he ran them well, but a PvP-centric game isn’t for me and I still haven’t seen anything to suggest that a pure PvEer is going to get anything from this game possibly unless he/she specialises in guild crafting roles.

That’s fine, I’m all for niche PvP titles and I’d much rather have them than PvE-centric games in which the minority PvP voices clamor the loudest for skill and other balancing changes that are then applied to the PvE as well as the PvP.

This is going to be a Backer Beta. Base, non-supportive non-backer peasants are left out and they deserve no less.

As it should be.

Thanks Tandor! Hopefully the next big game we do will be more to your tastes. No matter what, thanks for the kind words.

I wanted to comment on this good news, but… this new comment system update is really distracting me.

MOP’s upgrade stole the thunder of announcing this announcement. Have some mercy on Mr. Jacobs on Monday, Bree.

edit: Read below that this wasn’t an announcement of an announcement but just a mention of an announcement in a regular update for people who follow closer than I do :)

Reader
Mark Jacobs

FYI, no problem with what Bree and MOP posted here. If I didn’t want people to know about it, I wouldn’t have put it in the update. :)

Yeah, I’m wondering about the new comment system here too.

What “new comment system update”? I seem to have missed something.

Took us long enuf!

If you can’t laugh a little at yourself, don’t worry, someone else will! :)

I have many friends who have been looking forward to participating in this beta. So now they can make plans once we have a date.

Like I frequently say, better late than never like we have seen with other games.

Reader
Mark Jacobs

Thanks, I couldn’t agree more.

But we also want the rest of Alpha to be fun too which is one of the reasons this week was all about the first real tests of our scenario system.

As I’ve said here, there, and everywhere, can’t wait!

Will it have NDA?

Reader

Yes OC, in the beginning of Beta 1, but we will allow some livestreaming of the Saturday Night Sieges during early Beta 1 and possibly before Beta 1 as well.
