Hello all. Dorian from Mechanist Games (indie developer of City of Steam) here. Just two days ago we wrapped up the "Human Debut" test weekend, which, however, doesn't mean to be the end of the whole Alpha test weekends. A new test round - "Elves Elite" weekend will be rolled out at 7pm PDT on July 27th (that is, this Friday)
, when players get to play as a cautious and withdrawn Draug or as a stylish and charismatic Riven
(and of course, you can still play as humans this weekend).
For the keys - if you've activated your account for the first weekend test, it will remain activated until the entire Alpha session is over; or if you've got a key for the first test weekend but haven't redeemed the key yet - not to worry, it can be redeemed anytime throughout the entire Alpha test.
But if you haven't got a key yet and still want to play the game, here's the chance. Some media sites are jointly giving away the keys with us. They are:MMORPG
