Camelot Unchained’s beta is now set to launch on July 31st

City State Entertainment’s Mark Jacobs has just announced on today’s studio Twitch stream that RvR MMORPG Camelot Unchained’s beta one will begin next week on July 31st. The launch is contingent on the success of this weekend’s test.

“We need to get enough people 500+ to show up at the same time to tell us whether the changes we have made worked,” Jacobs told us ahead of the stream. “We’ve run tests on it, and it looks good, but we need real human beings to join in, and the best time to do that is over the weekend. So it’s a bit of a Catch-22. But we’re looking good overall.”

MMO vets will recall that this beta was originally meant to launch several years ago, but the studio pushed it off, choosing instead to secure more investment, open a second studio, hire more programmers, and refactor large chunks of its ability system. The beta date was then set for the 4th of July, but it was delayed a few extra weeks because developers needed to clean up remaining bugs to eliminate a client crash rate that was, in their words, “too damn high.”

The stream begins at 4 p.m. EDT; you can catch it below.

For anyone with IT/Alpha/Beta 1 access, pop into Wyrmling to help the devs get above 400 concurrent players logged into the game to test the API server and get beta rolling.

Apparently I was too slow. All I see up atm is the IT server Hatchery

Hopefully MJ is still lurking around and can answer this. With the low turnout of testers, would it be a good idea to allow backers to gift their extra copies of the game (Warrior lvl tiers with Beta 1 access) to have a larger pool of testers?

The extra copies are for beta3 and not beta1.

The extra digital copies are Warrior lvl tier, which got upgraded to beta 1. The Beta keys are Beta 3.

As a Day 1 backer, congratulations to Mark Jacobs and Team! You have had your share of hurdles, but now you are on a sprint to the end. Love the game and cannot wait for launch!

Thanks! It certainly will take us less time to get to a LIVE game than it did for us to get to Beta 1! :)
