As we close the doors on Closed Beta 2.5, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you who participated in this phase of testing! Your feedback, dedication, and support have been invaluable as we continue to shape and refine our game for the better.

Closed Beta 2.5 has been an exciting journey! Here are a couple of highlights that made this phase unforgettable:

  1. New Features: We introduced Faction Pledging and Third Person mode, in addition to giving players the ability to scan aircraft recipes to acquire their blueprints. And, based on your feedback we also released a host of other game improvements and quality of life enhancements.
  2. Community Love: We launched our official MetalCore Ambassador Program during CB 2.5 and we have already received over 60 applications! We’re thrilled to see the amount of love and support from our community! <3 We also hosted our first official Twitch livestream where you got to play with our Community Managers and some of our devs.
  1. Exponential Growth: Our community has grown exponentially - we TRIPLED our Discord server growth and YouTube subscriber base. And, our waitlist of users to join Early Access has grown to over +123,000 users!

As for questing: Thanks to our dedicated and engaged community, close to 50,000 questers completed cover 350,000 quests! SUPER impressive numbers thanks to YOU.

And as per usual, you helped create some pretty great memes that our dev team always enjoys:

Now, as we bid farewell to Closed Beta 2.5, we're thrilled to announce the next chapter in our journey: Closed Beta 3. While we can't reveal all the details just yet, we can promise you this - Closed Beta 3 will be bigger, better, and more exhilarating than ever before. Here's a small teaser of what you can expect:

  • Session based PvP scenarios - introducing new faction based PvP scenarios with multiple objectives.
  • Faction-based social hubs - for you to hang out and connect with other players of your faction.
