It’s been a while since we heard anything out of one of the more tantalizing MMORPG sandboxes on our horizon, the SpatialOS-based Fractured, but the game has stayed on our radar thanks to its plans for MMO-centric content like player cities and consensual PvP as well as its anti-grind philosophy. MMO players will recall that it entered alpha one this past spring after a delay from 2018, the same year it funded on Kickstarter to the tune of $130,000.
“While the scope of Test 1 in April was to get your feedback on basic game mechanics and assess server stability, work for Test 2 was largely focused on adding new content to the game. As described in the roadmap, content added consists of new creatures, spells, and crafting / housing / equipment options. According to community feedback, Fractured was deemed to be already (relatively) polished in Test 1. Nonetheless, we’ve managed to get rid of over 30 bugs in the last couple months. That should guarantee you an even smoother testing experience!”
Access to this leg of the alpha will be granted to those who’ve bought a Knight package (or better) from the game’s preorder store. The studio does remind players it’s discontinuing its Kickstarter-equivalent packages when phase two kicks off. And no, there is no NDA.
