City of Steam Alpha Test 3 Makes Goblins, Hobbes and Orcs Playable
After debuting the humans and elves races in two earlier Alpha test weekends, the free-to-play browser game City of Steam will be launching the greenskin races for testing this August 3 – 5.
Aptly called “Greenskin Incursion,” this latest Alpha test weekend will begin Friday at 19:00 PDT (22:00 EDT) and will last until Monday at 00:00 PDT (03:00 EDT). It will open up the race selection to include the three greenskin races –the meddlesome goblins, the gruff hobbes and the burly orcs. This brings up the number of playable races in the browser MMORPG to the complete total of nine.
“The Alpha weekend will be chock full of events and activities that will give players a chance to win cool swag and honorary titles,” said City of Steam developer Mechanist Games. It also said more Alpha test weekends might be lined up after Greenskin Incursion.
Players who are able to grab a City of Steam Alpha test key – MMO-Play is giving away some to random members – will be able to explore the World Machine, join the Alpha test events and test out the turn-based combat of this free online rpg.
City of Steam testers are also encouraged to try out the four available classes: The magical Arcanist, the ranged Gunner, the martial Warder, or the bard-like Channeler.
On top of exploring the game and having fun during Greenskin Incursion, Arcanist Games also reminds testers to be on the lookout for glitches. “This is an Alpha version, so be sure to help out the developers by reporting bugs on the forum and getting into the strong community.”
