Want to play Forge Alpha early? Kickstarter is the only way
Lot of cool things available by supporting their Kickstarter.
Dark Valve games have announced that, one way to play Forge early would be to support their Kickstarter project for the game. Forge is currently in an alpha stage but looks pretty good. It’s a multiplayer-only PC game which is set to release this year.
“We’ve always said that we want to run our business a little differently, to do what is right for those people playing our games,” said Tim Alvis, COO/CTO of Dark Vale Games.
“We’re doing just that – we’re giving PC gamers the opportunity to try FORGE’s unique multiplayer by pledging money on Kickstarter but never having to pay a dime if they’re not satisfied. As an added incentive, those who pre-purchase FORGE via Kickstarter now will receive a significant discount compared to the retail price.”
Here’s what you can get by supporting them on Kickstarter:
- Alpha Access and try-before-you-buy: Backers of the game will now be able to play FORGE immediately via an Alpha demo available only to Kickstarter supporters. Alpha play will run from now through the end of the Kickstarter campaign on September 8. If players are not satisfied with the title’s direction and experience, they can remove their pledge anytime (per Kickstarter rules) before the end of the Kickstarter campaign on September 8.
- Discounted price: FORGE is being offered for an exclusive price only for Kickstarter backers. The game is available for the minimum pledge of $15, a $10 savings off the $25 final purchase price.
- Beta Access: Backers of the game will also receive access into the already-full Closed Beta, scheduled for September. FORGE’s 10,000-player beta filled incredibly fast with PC gamers hungry for something fresh. Pledging on Kickstarter will be the only way for PC gamers to join in on one of the hottest new games of the Fall before release.
