August 4, 2023
Greetings, fellow explorers and adventurers of the AlterVerse.
Fasten your seatbelts, as we take you on a thrilling new ride into the heart of our gaming universe. From August 4th to 7th, we're opening the gates to Sky City for an exclusive beta playtest yet again!
This is not just any playtest. Witness the current beauty of Sky City, as we all eagerly anticipate the arrival of the SkyReign Immortals. These powerful entities herald a silent war beneath the surface of Sky City...a storm brewing with the potential to reshape the world as we know it.
What's more, three distinct factions will soon mark their territories within Sky City: the Aristocracy, the Underworld, and the Marauders. Each faction holds its allure, its challenges, and its rewards.
For this playtest's contests, get a taste of the grandeur of the Aristocracy as you maneuver your vehicle through ramps and rings in the city's luxurious EpiCenter. Feel the thrill of the wild with the Marauders as you hunt the diverse wildlife populating the treacherous terrain of Razorback Ridge. Then, lose yourself in the chaotic charm of the Underworld's Emusement Park, a place where fun means profit, and where not everything is as it seems. Finally, give yourself an exhilrating aerial tour of all the featured faction HaloSpheres!
Location: EpiCenter HaloSphere
Details: Explore the EpiCenter, find a ride and take it over the central ramps. Catch yourself driving around the central ring, near the giant mechs. Bonus points if you get footage riding through one of the floating rings!
Prize: Ring Racer "Atlantic"
Location: Razorback Ridge HaloSphere
Details: It's time to hunt. Immerse yourself in the beautiful, untamed wilderness of Razorback Ridge -- the soon-to-be home HaloSphere of the mighty Marauders. Hunt some wildlife and document the evidence with a video or screenshot.
Prize: Roadster "Classical"
Location: Emusement Park HaloSphere
Details: The Underworld loves fun -- especially when that fun is "making tons of money from unsuspecting Aristocracy and Marauders". It's time to play around on their home turf, before they turn it into the world's most advanced and engaging grift. Step right up, and capture footage of the sights around Emusement Park!
Prize: Roadster "Hot Rod"
Location: EpiCenter, Emusement Park, and/or Razorback Ridge HaloSpheres
Details: What better way to experience the gorgeous sights of Sky City than from...well...the sky? Glide through the EpiCenter, soar through the Emusement Park, and fall-with-style through Razorback Ridge. Share your favorite footage or screenshot(s) captured on your tour.
Prize: SkyCar "Sentinel"
This playtest promises to be an exhilarating rollercoaster ride, as we bring you one of the last remaining chances to see Sky City before the factions' rise. Witness the calm before the storm, experience the city in its untouched glory, and prepare for an impending revolution.
Get ready for an exciting, fun-filled weekend, rich with unique adventures and intense competitions. Be the first to scout out Sky City's offerings, and prepare yourself for the arrival of the SkyReign Immortals.
Stay alert, adventurers. Sky City is on the brink of a seismic shift, and you're at the heart of it. Gear up, tune in, and stand by for more updates. The factions are rising, and the SkyReign Immortals are nearly here. Will you rise with them or fall in their wake?
It's your journey, your story. Make it one for the historical archives of the AlterVerse.
