Rend Alpha continues to grow with thousands of new testers added and major content patches releasing with the new Roots of Yggdrasil biome, Ascension metaprogression system, starter area Tutorial Stones, and much more, all leading up to Rend’s Early Access launch on July 31.
We are excited to announce that the Rend Alpha media embargo will lift on Thursday, July 26 at 12:01 AM PDT (UTC-7). Those who remember our developer letter from the very start of Alpha will recall the purpose of the embargo was to facilitate press features and give our indie game the best possible chance for mainstream coverage and awareness, while also ensuring that the game looked its best with finalized visual assets and a polished game interface.
Additionally, after 16 months of accepting hundreds of thousands of signups, we’ll be bringing down the Alpha sign up form on the website this week. This is a necessary step towards preparing for next week’s Early Access. Everyone who signs up for Alpha before Thursday, July 26 at 12:01 AM PDT (UTC-7) will be added to the test. Our sincere thanks to everyone who’s contributed to the game’s Alpha through breaking in new content, sharing constructive feedback, and making the Rend community a welcoming environment for players and new fans!
We’re full speed ahead here at Frostkeep and ready to reach Rend’s next milestone on its journey to launch! Stay updated on the latest Early Access developments by following us on Steam, Discord, Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit!
