:beerchug:Next Island Release:woot:

I have amount of time before the Next Island Beta. It is said to be released in about 5 weeks. I recieved an email from Next Island support who answered a question about the game, but also confirmed the 5 week release. I hope it can be trusted. There seems to be allot of new things in this game. Does this also mean some old features will come out with it?


If you need to see the email I will post it. Stay tuned

In 5 weeks ? The release or the beta ? Beta was announced to open in 2-3 Weeks. That announcement was 3-4 Weeks ago, so I'm a bit confused here :confused:

Well

Theyve been doing that for a while. So many within 3-5 weeks. They probably had some error somewhere that they wanted to fix.

I wonder if you respawn with 0 skills or if you carry over your skills when you visit a new planet? If I have to start over...well I,m staying on Calypso.

i think the whole thing they where going for was you have one avatar but each new planet is like a new game and you keep everything. like playing masseffect 2 you can use your avatar from the first game.

if it is a beta thaught i'm shure you have to make a beta avatar that might get deleted when the full release comes

Well, they will be carried over...
I was one of the early registered members and I was offered the chance to create an avatar that would acquire a start set on arrival. I could start skilling on Calypso already.

I rather have a full functioning, bugfree Next Island in two months time, than a faulty one now.

There I am, dreaming again.

Yes I agree. A bug free Next Island would be nice... even if it has taken longer to make.

its beta its going to have bugs.
I think whats holding them up is waiting for pc to get features developed that were promised, such as the quest system.

I'm pretty sure you are too late for that.
I hope I'm still in it. :p
I registered on the very first site as #64, but that was all gone with the second site, leaving me no option to register again. ;)
