Early Access

Q.) Will my progress be reset during Early Access?

A.) Yes! We’re aware this is a painful experience and will try to minimise the frequency of this occurring as much as possible. However, there will be resets of your progress and the world during Early Access. This is only something we do as an absolute necessity. They’ll be rare and we’ll give you as much warning as possible. At the moment we estimate this will happen around every 4 months. 

Please note: progress and items will not be restored as a result of this reset. However, Lockbox and Founder’s Pack items will be unaffected by any resets.
