Must-Have Closed Beta Test Info

smoreceror

Hey, Closers. Smoreceror here! Today I’ll be laying out all the details for the Closers Closed Beta Test (CBT)!

Before I get into the nitty-gritty, I’m excited to announce that we’re finally ready to unveil the start date of the Closers CBT:

Tuesday, November 7!

That’s right, we’re less than a week away from turning the Closers servers back on for our CBT, and we’ll be arriving on Steam later this month. Best of all, there are no progress wipes this time!

Read on for info on how to get into CBT, what events will be running, and what we’ve changed up since Alpha. We’re looking forward to seeing you in-game!

Introduction to the Closers Closed Beta Test

Based on your amazing player feedback, we’ve got a lot of great changes going into the Closers CBT (check the Changes from Alpha section for more info), but we’re not done yet!

The client version that we’re kicking off Closed Beta with isn’t 100% localized just yet, but we’re very close. From an economy and progress side of things, we feel we’re in a great place, so from the start of CBT on, there will be no character wipes. Closed Beta players will be the first Closers in North America and Europe. You’ll help shape the game, and get some awesome, exclusive loot.

You can get CBT access and the previously mentioned sweet loot by becoming a Founder!

Become a Founder and Gain Access

You can reserve your spot in the Closed Beta and get some awesome exclusive items (like the Dark Command costumes) by pre ordering a Founder’s Pack now. All Founder’s packs will provide access to the Closed Beta and, depending on the pack you choose, you can get a variety of items and costumes to start your Closers career in style.

Please note, these bundles contain one of each specified costume. When you first login, you'll receive the bundle in your delivery box and then move it to any character on your account. Once each bundle is opened, it is bound to that character, so choose wisely!

Here is a complete list of details, per item and pack.

  • Phase Wings, Ivory Icon Costume, Tan & Ash Sweater Club Costumes, Monster Cat, Founders Title – are all unique to Founders Packs, this will be the only way to obtain these items EVER, for the Black Lamb Team.
  • Dark Command (SoD) – is exclusive to closed beta and only purchasable through the “Ace Closer Bundle”. These have never been available as a 10-piece set purchase, all at once. These will be obtainable, after closed beta (by launch), through the same crafting method currently available in other regions.

    Changes from Alpha

    There are a ton of bug fixes and localization changes going into the Closed Beta build—too many to cover here—so we’re just going to focus on a few of the biggest additions to Closed Beta.

    The Fatigue system is weekly instead of daily!

    When a character is created, it gets 170 Fatigue, capped at 170 Fatigue. Then, that cap increases by 170 over the next seven days, re-filling completely at the weekly reset (Tuesdays, at 6 a.m. UTC). Check out the table below for a better idea of how this works.

    Login Day Fatigue Restored Fatigue Cap
    Day 1 170 170
    Day 2 0 340
    Day 3 0 510
    Day 4 0 680
    Day 5 0 850
    Day 6 0 1020
    Day 7 0 1190 (MAX)
    Weekly Reset 1190 1190 (MAX)

    The weekly fatigue reset occurs Tuesdays, at 6 a.m. UTC.

    The in-game shop is now open for business!

    You are free to buy EMP and spend it however you like on a variety of items in our in-game store (including any EMP you already had associated with your account). You can purchase tons of consumables and costumes there for your whole crew.

    We added an Elite subscription system, with a ton of great benefits.

    If you’ve applied 90 days of Elite status to your account, you’ll be upgraded to Platinum status! It’s got all the perks of Elite status, and then some.
