Joint developers n-Space andhave announced a Head Start Access programmed for their fantasy RPG, Sword Coast Legends. Pre-order customers will be able to jump into the game on September 11, a few weeks earlier than the final release date of September 29.
"We at n-Space have always intended for our pre-order customers to have a chance to try out the game prior to its September 29th release," says n-Space president Dan Tudge, the game's director. "To that end, we are announcing the details of Sword Coast Legends’ Head Start access program."
He goes on to explains that the game's Head Start Access will have three 'sessions'; the first is scheduled for the weekend of September 11 through 13 and will be available only to members of the Design Council, meaning anyone who pre-ordered one of theor Campaign Collector’s packs. The second runs from September 18 through 20, and is available to all pre-order customers, and the third session will run from September 24 through to September 29.
The first two sessions will only feature the game's "Dungeon Master modes of Campaign Creation and Dungeon Crawl", as the developers apparently don't want to spoil the story. In the final session, Design Council customers will be able to jump in to the story campaign.
A little bit confusing, but I think I've got my head around it. During the pre-order sessions, n-Space, Digital Extremes and Wizards of the Coast team members will be hanging around in-game.
