    APG - FPS Playtest Invite

    Hello Everyone,

    It’s been a year since our first prototype and we’re now ramping up to alpha! We still have a lot of work to go but if you’re interested in playing with us, our next group playtest is January 30th 8:00 PM EST. We greatly appreciate any feedback provided and to join or be added to our mailing list let me know what email you'd like us to contact you with.

    If you want to know more we have lots of info at our website including a Players Guide Doc: http://www.arcturusprovinggrounds.co...#Players_Guide

    Also, here’s two videos to give a quick look at what APG is all about:

    Other Notes
    • Game will launch as F2P with no game balance related unlockables
    • Game auto updates so if we do future events you wont have to re-download anything
    • Since we’re still working on in-game voice we currently use Mumble to voice chat (not required but recommended).
    • From playtest feedback and setup of dedicated hardware will determine how and when future playtests take place



    Thanks,
    Ian Labrie

    January Playtest Is Here!

    Join us today, January 30th, for an open playtest with the devs at 8:00 PM EST. If you’re interested please email contact@nlogicstudios.com. We have limited space available so reserve your slot now!

    For this playtest we’re introducing the Factory level. Fight your way around, through, and on moving conveyor belts, gravity lifts, and other deadly hazards. This level is huge, with plenty of vertical space to cover. So make sure you buy some Jump Boots! Snipers are a likely concern that you’ll want to watch out for, particularly when the artificial gravity fails.

    We also made some changes to the layout of the Ship level so you’ll find fights in more places. Tight corridors and low ceilings makes mines effective and the pistol’s bounce shot mod downright frightening.

    The store is up and running in our Dev Sandbox so all point buying is FREE! For now, and obviously we’re gonna wipe the database after the playtest. So use your free points to buy the decal packs and get started working on unlocking all their content. Right now we have the kill and extract sets available so you’ll have the choice of focusing on kills or bounty box retrieval in your quest to unlock customization options.

    If you have a moment to spare you can pick up some vote tokens and voice your opinion on our first ever Community Poll.
