    As promised, the long-awaited Realms Beyond combat beta has been released to eligible backers. Players will get to assemble a party and can expect to face some tough battles in the Halls of Challenge, made tougher by the fact that savegame functionality hasn't been implemented yet. Here's the announcement:

    Fellow Adventurers!

    The long-awaited combat beta of Realms Beyond has been finally released to backers whose reward tier includes combat beta access. Assemble your party and enter the Halls of Challenge to brave tough fights that will put all your skills to the test!

    The purpose of the combat beta is to provide feedback and bug reports to us, so if you are among those with access to it, we ask you to report any issues to us. The easiest way to do so is in our official Discord server, where we have opened a dedicated combat beta channel. You can also use our official forums at realms-beyond.com (account registration required). You can also write to support[at]ceres-games.com.

    While the combat beta is not available to the public, there is no NDA on it. You can take screenshots, talk about your experience on forums and social media, or even record yourself playing it on YouTube or Twitch.

    Since this is essentially a closed beta, please keep in mind that there are still bugs to be ironed out, balance is not perfect, and some features are missing. We will deal with those issues as we receive your reports. As of now, we have not yet implemented a savegame feature. If you want to speed up animations in combat, hold down <SPACE>. If you have any questions - or suggestions - feel free to contact us about them.

    Happy playing, and may you survive the trials of the Halls of Challenge!
    The combat beta is exclusive to original Kickstarter backers and is not available on the Realms Beyond preorder site. By my count, only 231 people pledged enough money to get it. Let's hope some of them upload videos to YouTube.

    Nah. They're using Backer Kit, but you need to set up some other account on some forum. Too much to deal with just to see a preview right now.

    The game looks very interesting. Now I wish I've backed it.
