Video games have always been one to set their own path to launch, this especially is true when indie games became a bigger part of our gaming world. Now, via websites and services like Gamejolt and Steam, developers have even more freedom to develop the game how they want to. Which is perfect for the permadeath MMO known as Survived By. For last year, they did a closed alpha on their official website, and through events and special alphas, they were able to grow their fanbase. And now, they’re doing it again with a closed beta.
Through this closed beta, the teams behind the game, including Digital Extremes and Human Head Studios, are actually going to bring in more players than ever to test out their MMO and see what feedback they have for it. They also will be able to test out the new event called “Prophecy Of Sin”, which will bring a new monster into the fold.
But wait, there’s even more you’ll be able to do via new features added to the closed beta.
Players can also take on Survived By‘s newest 10-player-limited Raid Dungeon, Conduit of Fire. The introduction of this Raid dungeon and more to come will force players to strategize and work together like never before as a maximum of 10 players take on new bosses across multiple levels. Along the way, players will encounter fierce new enemies, uncover altars that bestow various buffs and earn unknown treasures across a series of maps. While regular dungeons consist of a single boss, Raids will force players to defeat three, each blocking their path until the other is defeated. Once completed, players are rewarded with rare components to craft unique weapons, armour and soon, unlock never-before-seen ancestral legacies.
Additional New Features Added During Closed Alpha
- Hard Mode Dungeons. These brand new dungeons act as variations of the original dungeons but with more rooms, increased monsters and more rewarding loot.
- More Ways to Customize. New skins, legacies, set bonuses, bullet patterns, item sockets, item levels and permanent bonuses await in the Heartlands. Launching today will also be a brand new attachment system that will allow players to add cosmetic items including giant bat wings, burning footsteps and more.
- Updated Visuals. Reimagined zones, enemies, sprites and an all-new UI.
