Sword Coast Legends releases next month, and the developers are granting those who pre-order the game a chance to play it before anyone else.
The head start will be offered to Linux, Mac and PC users in three stages depending on which edition of the game was pre-orders. Cross-platform play will be supported, and developers n-Space, Digital Extremes and Wizards of the Coast team members will be mingling with players.
Stage one runs from September 11-13 for members of the Design Council – those that pre-ordered one of the Limited Edition Collector’s or Campaign Collector’s packs.
The second access period will run September 18-20 for all pre-order customers.
These first two sessions will focus on the Dungeon Master modes of Campaign Creation and Dungeon Crawl. The Story Campaign will not be available due to spoilers.
The third and final early access session will run September 24-29 and it contains the same content for all pre-order customers. Design Council members will also be granted to the Story Campaign.
PAX Prime attendees will be able to try their hand at the first public demo.
Sword Coast Legends releases on September 29 and is available for pre-order from Steam and the PlayStation Store for $34.99. Digital Deluxe and Collector’s Edition are also available for pre-order for $59.99 and $239.99, respectively.
Details regarding the upcoming “Rage of Demons” DLC expansion for Sword Coast Legends will be announced at a later date.
