Accessing the Public Test

Things to keep in mind:

  • The content you are going to experience is currently in development. By participating in our public test, you will be able to help us locate issues and fix them before the content is officially released to all platforms.
  • Since this content is still in development, we ask that when discussing unreleased content to please respect those who aren't participating in the public test who may be waiting for the content to officially release. Use spoiler tags when you feel it is appropriate.
  • It is important to remember that your save files might not be compatible between the test builds and the release builds. This is especially true when moving back to the release branch from the public test branch, since the content in the public test save contains unreleased content.
  • This Public Test is currently only available for players who have purchased the game on Steam. That said, we want to have as many players as possible help us play on these test builds and are working to open this up to players playing through Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and the Microsoft Store. We will keep you all notified when this becomes available to players there. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
