Corepunk is finally considering PvE servers, plans multiple closed betas

We were taken a bit aback in early April when the Corepunk team seemed to assert that all of its servers would contain world PvP, despite acknowledging that many players would not want that. Fortunately, now it seems that strong consideration is being given to PvE-only servers to those who want them.

This news comes out of a compilation of developer questions and answers from the Discord server. “We are thinking about PvP and PvE dedicated servers on release,” the team’s lead game designer said. “What do you think? I mean, we still have not decided yet, but wanted to know what you guys think. By PvE servers, I mean no free open-world PvP, but you will still have all access to cross-realm arenas and battlegrounds.”

Other items up for consideration include possible Korean servers, the ability to access all professions on a single character, and roleplay servers.

Additionally, the team confirmed on Reddit that there will be multiple beta tests: “The CBT-1 will be three days long (August 25th through 28th) and there will be a CBT-2 and CBT-3. The CBT-1 will be more of a stress test for the servers/game. The first gameplay related videos will be posted during June.”

Not really interested as I don’t care about the theme and don’t like isometric MMOs, but at least they got the message that most MMO players aren’t into hardcore FFA PVP– there are shooter looters that cater FAR BETTER to that crowd than any MMORPG ever could.

Leave the MMOs to the RPG fans, option PVP is fine–not forced garbage.

Besides potential PvE servers (hell, yeah!), those are some great additions in the air. I say yes to all of them!

I was already interested in this game, but this makes me even more interested.

I actually really like PvP, but I absolutely HATE world PvP. So now I’m looking forward to this even more and will almost certainly play it.

These days, I just don’t have the time to devote to a PvP-focused game. So if there’s no PvE server(s), then I’ll pass rather than be frustrated at a game.

Any new MMO that goes strictly open world PvP is DOA. That this fact remains a mystery to many aspiring MMO developers itself remains a mystery.

Look no further than New World for developers to get insta-educated on why OW PvP rarely works.

With PvE servers, game has a chance of surviving to become viable for the long term.

I couldn’t agree more. I honestly have no damn clue, why so many (indie) devs choose to put open world pvp in their game. Are developers all hardcore pvpers or am I missing something?

The only reason I wasn’t interested in trying the game was because of the open pvp, but with dedicated pve servers, I’d definitely check it out for sure.

This is good news. I like PvE, I like PvP, I don’t like mixing the two.

Nice news. One Server to want be a “carebear hero” for “WoW´s weeping widows” and other to someone need a devs original vision (fusion between PvE and PvP).

I thought this game looked good when I first saw it, but if the devs don’t even realize people would want PVE servers or a PVP toggle?? Might have to pass :/ where are the good scifi MMOs after you’ve played SWTOR…

PvE servers? You get my money.
Only PvP servers? Nope, but good luck to you.
