We are very excited to launch Shards Online on Steam in the upcoming months. A topic of discussion that has come up frequently amongst the team is how do we wipe the slate clean for Steam while still making sure the people who supported the project, the people who made this entire thing possible, get just a little bit of special treatment.
- All supporters who pledge before the crowdfunding campaign comes to a close will get a 1 week head start on official servers prior to the Steam Release.
- New and improved Loyalty Store.
- Unique in-game titles based on lifetime loyalty earned.
- Reminder: All loyalty points spent during Alpha will be refunded.
We will be providing additional opportunities to earn loyalty points in the coming weeks. Including:
- All existing pledges will be granted a spot loyalty reward equal to 30 points per month since they've pledged.
- Going forward, loyalty points will be rewarded monthly (100 points per month) for active players.
- Reporting previously unknown exploits (via the in-game bug reporting tool). Put EXPLOIT in capital letters to make sure it doesn't go unnoticed.
- Keep an eye on the calendar for official in-game events.
Stay tuned over the coming weeks as we will be showcasing our planned rewards.
