DeFi Kingdoms, one of the popular blockchain games, has announced the official soft launch of the pre-alpha version of Combat Testing Grounds. This early version of the game offers players an exclusive opportunity to explore the in-development combat feature and provide valuable feedback to the developers. By doing so, they'll help create a more polished and enjoyable gaming experience for the wider community.
DeFi Kingdoms has teamed up with Wisdom Gaming to make this pre-alpha version available to players, marking the first time the team has opened up a pre-alpha of a feature to its community.
What to Expect in the Pre-Alpha Version
As is the case with any pre-alpha version, players should anticipate various bugs and unfinished elements, with the current features not representing the final product. The pre-alpha version, which is currently available only for desktop users, includes the following:
The first three combat classes: Archer, Knight, and Priest
Placeholder animations for heroes and abilities
"Cutting edge" Blub AI, cute little slimes that players will face in combat
No mobile support, sound effects, status effects, or finalized animations and UI
Accessing the Combat Testing Grounds Pre-Alpha
Players can access the Combat Testing Grounds pre-alpha version through Crystalvale and Serendale using the new "Backstage Pass" Power-Up. This power-up can be purchased for 50 c/sJEWEL from the Power-Up Manger in the Jeweler.
It's important to note that the "Backstage Pass" Power-Up is a separate purchase and not included in the game's regular Jewel currency. Players should expect the pre-alpha version to be a work in progress, with many features still under development.
The Importance of Community Feedback
The DeFi Kingdoms team understands the importance of community feedback in developing a successful game. By offering the pre-alpha version of Combat Testing Grounds to players, the developers can gather insights and suggestions from the community, which will help them refine the game and create a more engaging experience.
In addition, opening up the pre-alpha version to the community allows players to become more invested in the game's development, fostering a sense of ownership and camaraderie among players. This collaborative approach not only helps improve the game but also strengthens the community that supports it.
Future Developments for DeFi Kingdoms
DeFi Kingdoms' soft launch of the pre-alpha version of Combat Testing Grounds is just one step in the ongoing development of the game. As the team continues to work on and refine the game, players can expect to see additional features and improvements implemented, based on community feedback and the developers' vision for the game.
Some possible future developments for DeFi Kingdoms include:
Additional combat classes, each with unique abilities and playstyles
Mobile support, enabling players to enjoy the game on various devices
