Reminder: Crowfall has not launched yet and is currently in testing.
That means the game
will have bugs (finding and fixing them is why we test), and that not all the skills,
features and content are in yet.
Thank you for purchasing Crowfall!
Note that these are two separate downloads. This means there will be two separate patchers
that will lead to, in effect, two different universes. The skills, items, and characters present in
one will not transfer to the other. This also means your pledge rewards can only be used in
one or the other (though we do reward resets every so often).
If you do choose to download both the LIVE and TEST versions of the game, please put the
installers in separate, clearly labeled folders (CrowfallLIVE and CrowfallTEST) to avoid any
The LIVE environment is where you’ll find the game up 24/7. It includes all the regular
features: the Skill tree, Eternal Kingdoms, and Campaign Worlds. LIVE represents the more
polished version of the game. This environment will be updated less frequently, but will also
be subject to fewer bugs and outages than the TEST environment.
If you want a more stable, 24/7 experience, play the LIVE environment.
The TEST environment is as its name suggests: this is the rougher version where the new
features will appear first. You’ll see more frequent patches, but they’ll also be in a more
unrefined state than the patches for the LIVE environment – just perfect for all your bug-
seeking thrills. You should also expect more resets here, and when this happens access will
restart with Pre-Alpha 1, then Pre-Alpha 2, and so on. The TESTING environment’s schedule
will be in flux; we’ll likely bring it up whenever we have a new patch that needs a larger frame
of testing than we can provide in the office.
If you’re okay with a more unpredictable playing experience and want to be on the front lines
of testing the newest features, use the TEST environment.
