The first alpha test for Fractured has not yet begun, but you can get a taste of what it’ll be like with a look at the map of Myr, the continent used for that first alpha test. Myr consists of 40 square kilometers of land for players to roam across and forge into something; it’s meant to be large and untamed, while at the same time full of places to work and things to see even before player settlements start popping up all over.
And player settlements are meant to pop up; you can see the sites for those towns marked all across the map, along with mines and roads to serve their own functions. The designers are already hoping that the map is larger than what players would normally expect, so perhaps it would be best to take a look at the map and evaluate if it’s even bigger than expected after all. Or just read about fun things like Kickstarter pledge integration; that’s there too, but it’s not marked on any map.
For those of you who may not recall Fractured in any detail, it’s an isometric sandbox with an emphasis on player cities, opt-in PvP, and an emphasis on lore and setting. Its rather modest Kickstarter funded back in July with $130,000.
