After all the talk and hullabaloo, we can understand being eager to take on Rend as an actual game instead of a concept. Good news, then! The first alpha test will be playable now! That’s no assurance that you’ll be one of the people playing it, however, since it is an invite-only test and there are no firm numbers on how many people will be allowed in. But you can sign up and have a realistic hope of getting in, that’s good enough.
Rend, for those who have forgotten, is a faction-based survival sandbox focused around a mix of PvE and PvP combat with a time-limited server reset mechanism. We had a chance to peek at the game’s current state at both GDC and PAX East, so check those out if you’d like a refresher about what we saw. (Which, for the record, was good stuff.)
