Hello inmates,

We know you’ve been waiting for an update this year! A brand new Show Director Power, axe improvements and more updates are coming your way this month. You’re invited to preview and help us improve them in a Technical Playtest on Monday, February 4!

Don’t forget that the features you’ll see in the Playtest are still in development, so you may experience some issues.

WHAT EXACTLY AM I TESTING?

We’re looking for your feedback about the new Show Director Power, axe changes, and the new Practice vs. AI training mode, in particular. We’d also like to know what you think and how your experiences are with creating Custom Matches.

Show Directors, we know you’re all curious about the new Show Director Power, so stay tuned to our social media channels for some details in the next few days, or go in blind for a surprise on Monday!

WHEN IS THE TECHNICAL PLAYTEST?

The Technical Playtest will take place on Monday, February 4 from 4 PM EST (9 PM UTC) to 6 PM EST (11 PM UTC) on Steam.

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE IN THE PLAYTEST?

  • Go to your Steam Library
  • Right-click on Darwin Project and select Properties
  • Go to the Beta tab and enter the playtest code: playtest124357689
  • Click Check Code, then select Playtest from the drop-down menu
  • Restart Steam and launch Darwin Project

Important: Don’t forget to opt out of the Playtest branch once it is over! You can do this by going back to the Beta tab in the game’s Properties and selecting None from the drop-down menu.

I play on Xbox, How Can I Participate?

We are currently only able to conduct Playtests on Steam, but we are already actively working on a way to enable players to participate in Playtests for the Xbox One console. We will share more details about this as soon as we can!

CAN I STREAM OR RECORD THE PLAYTEST?

Yes! We also encourage those who are not able to participate to tune into the streams if they’d like. Don’t forget to opt out of the Playtest when you are done playing before continuing to stream Darwin Project.

HOW CAN i SEND YOU MY THOUGHTS?

We’d love to hear your feedback about the the upcoming patch! We will be posting the link to the post-playtest survey in the playtesting build as well as our social channels. Please take the time to fill it out and help us make this update the best it can be!

WHEN DOES THE February CONTENT UPDATE DROP?

The next patch will be available on February 19, with patch notes published a few days earlier as usual.

 

We hope you’ll join us, and see you in the arena!
