Having raised $537,515 during the Kickstarter campaign, Crate Entertainement’s Arthur Bruno issued a further update on the ARPGs progress.
According to Arthur, Crate are looking to get an Alpha version of the game ready by the end of this year with a Beta test to follow four to six months after.
Our current estimate is that alpha may be ready by the end of this year or early next year. We’re working our hardest to make this happen as soon as possible but we need to produce a certain amount of continuous, playable content and complete certain technical tasks before this can happen.
We expect beta to follow 4-6 months after alpha and then estimate August 2013 for the full release. I’m sure no one wants us to rush and release the game before it is ready though. After all, this is part of the reason we’ve avoided a standard publishing deal. So, please be patient; it will all pay off when we reach the finish-line.
The update also fills everyone in on reards and keys as well as details on the next stage now that the funding is being put in place.
With the ARPG genre seeing a bit of a revival at the moment, it will be intersting to watch the progression of Grim Dawn which looks pretty promising.
