Corepunk Alpha 2 Test Patch Notes

Published 1 week ago News & Updates Artificial Core

The following is an official news post, originally available here.


WELCOME, EVERYONE!

Thank you for following the game. We hope you will enjoy your time in the world of Kwalat!
Note: We didn't manage to introduce the trader system and new quests we were preparing for the test, but the good news is that we have almost everything ready for this. Additionally, we have added over 100 new NPCs to the game, each with their own story, and there will be no spoilers before early access. :)
We want to remind you that the game is still in active development, so expect bugs and various rough edges. We hope your expectations are accordingly set.

⚠️ 1. IMPORTANT: Close and reopen your launcher, log out from launcher, log out from browser, re-log in again to have less disconnects.

⚠️ 2. Please keep the launcher open during gameplay to have less.

⚠️ 3. If you get disconnected often - repeat step 1.

⚠️ 4. Check your previously bricked heroes, they should work now.

📢 5. To follow server updates, join the official Discord thread.

GENERAL

  • We are testing the initial player experience, so the game area is limited. If you hear whispering “come back,” and seeing the fog, that means you have reached the restricted zone, and you should turn back.
  • The gameplay mostly happens in the west part of the start location map. The east part is still locked.
  • We are using a combination of voice acting and AI-generated voices.
  • To link an item in chat, use LShift + RMB on the item in your inventory.
  • To split a stack of items in your inventory, use Shift + LMB on the stack.
  • Hold LShift for more information in Tooltips.
  • If there's something on the ground, hold LAlt to display names for the items.

MOVEMENT AND COMBAT

  • Press “Z” to toggle Autorun.
  • Press “L” to unlock/lock the camera.
  • Press “Tab” to center the camera on your character.
  • You can turn on Smart Cast in the game settings.
  • You can use Attack Click with A + LMB (without Smart Cast). In settings, you can set up Attack nearest enemy to the hero or to the cursor.

  • Press LCtrl + RMB on a weapon to open weapon Incrustation window. This window is in a very early prototype state.
