We’re once again opening up a work-in-progress version of the upcoming patch for you to try out! This time, we’re holding Technical Playtests on two days instead of just one! As you know if you’ve checked out our content update schedule, the September patch will contain a new combat update, Show Director Power, Electronic Power, and more.
Don’t forget that the features you’ll see in the Playtest are still in development, so you may experience small issues.
What exactly am I testing?
We’re looking for your feedback about the combat update, new Show Director Ability, and new Electronic, in particular, but you’ll be able to share your thoughts about everything in this version in the post-playtest survey. Stay tuned to our social media channels for some details in the next few days, or go in blind for a surprise in next week’s Playtests!
When is the Technical Playtest?
The Technical Playtest will take place on Tuesday (September 11) and Wednesday (September 12) from 4 PM EDT / 8 PM UTC to 6 PM EDT / 10 PM UTC.
