The time has finally come! We are thrilled to announce that Echoes of Empire will launch into beta on October 3rd, 2023. Our beta release represents the game becoming commercially available to the general public and free to play worldwide. We are incredibly excited to be able to share this with the community, and we know it’s been a long wait!
Ahead of the launch, we will have several community test periods for our landholders, so while October may still seem far away, the team is working very hard to bring all of our beta features into the game and have them ready to go. We want to ensure that the game is as polished as it can be, and claim holders will play a pivotal role in helping us shore up the experience, locate bugs and issues, and be ready to rock our October launch.
This release is a major milestone for the game and the team, but we want to stress that there will be ongoing additions and support for the game well after the doors open. For us, it is just the beginning, and we have long term plans to continue to develop and enhance the game. Players can expect to still encounter some bugs and issues while the game is in beta and still growing. Transparency has always been very important to us, and we want to set those expectations ahead of time.
As a reminder, claim holders can also look forward to the land rush period, and to being able to get into the game prior to the October 3rd date. Players will be let in for land rush in order of the rarity of their claims, as we’ve previously shared with the community.
2023 is our year, and we can’t wait to bring Echoes of Empire to market. Stay tuned for plenty of ongoing news, updates, and content as we approach launch!
