Indie MMO TitanReach’s free-to-play access is live — for a limited time

    
8

TitanReach, an indie MMO with an ambition to marry old and new school design together, may have been out of your financial reach with its previous $70 and then $38 early access price tag. Fortunately, now the cost has been reduced to $0 for anyone who wants to peek a head into the test.

As of August 1st, TitanReach is now free-to-play — until the closed alpha test begins. There’s been hope that the title can rise above funding issues and other controversies involved with its early access program, and certainly getting a lot more people into the test is a good way to expand the game’s reach into the wider MMO community.

“That means anyone with an account on the TitanReach website will be able to play for free until the closed alpha begins,” the studio explained. “This will not only open the game up to a lot more people but allows those of you who have supported us but didn’t have the financial means to play the game.”

For someone who used to play Runescape a lot and has a character with i think around 1800 skills.

What is their sales pitch towards people like me? What does this offer that Runescape does not and why wouldn’t i just play RS instead again?

Not bashing the game, i am just curious as to what are they offering to go up against a rather fleshed out game as they are trying to fish in that same pool of players.

Care to elaborate? They seem very very invested in ‘we’re going to be the new Runescape!’ …for someone who’s never been a Runescaper, I don’t even know what that means.

For me it’s time to download. I have a 100meg connection but I’m not going to dl and install a 50gig game for 4 days play or whatever. I see the installer is about 5g, but can’t tell how much the rest of it is?

I really doubt a game like that will be 50 Gbs large

The game is 2GB, but they don’t have patching capabilities, so on every patch, you’re downloading the full client again. On a 100Mbps line this should not take more than 5 min (ideally it would be around 3min 20sec).
The test should be around till Q4 when the game goes paid again.

As for the purpose of this game: Runescape is an incredibly popular game but there’s not a single even half-decent alternative to it. This one is attempting to do that, and since it’s newer, it will probably have less archaic systems and mechanics.
Right now it’s obviously very early and a bunch of QoL (and features, and systems etc) is missing, but later on it will probably be easier to get into than runescape, at least as an introduction.

So far they seem to have designed their game without making any really bad core game design errors that will end up killing the game.
The question is more if they can get the game into a state that’s worth paying a subscription for before they run out of development funds.
