Now that the Dark and Darker Alpha Playtest #3 is officially off and running, it's perhaps no surprise that many are wondering how they have to play the game before it goes offline once again.
Here's a breakdown of when Dark and Darker’s Alpha Playtest #3 will end.
When Does Dark and Darker Alpha Playtest 3 End?
Alpha Playtest #3 for Dark and Darker was launched on Dec. 16, 2022, and set to end on Friday, Dec. 23, 2022, at 4 a.m. ET. As described by IRONMACE, this is its "early holiday thank you" and gives players exactly one week to check out the game.
It is worth mentioning that the Alpha Playtest #2, which took place at the end of October, was extended one day since the devs wanted to "just play the game with everyone for at least a day without worrying about dev stuff," so it seems there could be a chance that IRONMACE decides to extend its latest playtest at the last second.
For new testers looking to hop into the Dark and Darker Alpha Playtest #3, you will be able to instantly join the playtest by going to the game's Steam page and clicking the "Request Access" button.
Spearheaded by the efforts of IRONMACE, Dark and Darker is said to be an "unforgiving, hardcore fantasy FPS dungeon PvPvE adventure" that invites players to choose from a wide array of timeless fantasy roles and form up-to-three-person squads with their friends to uncover mythical treasures and defeat gruesome monsters, while staying one step ahead of other player-controlled treasure-hunters.
