Allods Team, Obsidian Entertainment, and My.com, have announced the final closed beta test for Skyforge, running from June 23-29, which will introduce the knight and alchemist classes as well as a slew of new features.
The knight and alchemist, normally unlocked after a long time spent carving through the Ascension Atlas, will be available immediately to all players in CBT4, and the Atlas itself has been adjusted and its interface simplified "to promote a more streamlined experience, allowing the upper portions of the Atlas to be unlocked by players sooner, enabling them to more quickly progress towards other classes."
Players will find it easier to group in PvE and can adjust the difficulty of adventures to suit their mood. There's also been a major overhaul to the way orders and followers are managed and improvements to PvP matchmaking should make it easier to get well-tuned matches.
Aspiring godlings will also get their first crack at creating pantheons, trying on new types of equipment, amulets and trophies, and putting Skyforge's web interface, the Portal, through its paces. There are also the usual slate of bug fixes, UI improvements, client optimization, and character creation tweaks.
You can read the full, extensive patch notes on the closed beta test here. So now that we've got a date for the final CBT of Skyforge, Magicman's July 13 open beta prediction is still in play. Anyone wanna place bets?
