Hello Chasers, this is the KurtzPel Team.
We have an exciting announcement to make.
Something all of you have been waiting for, the release date of Early Access!
On April 30th 2019 at 09:00 PDT (April 30th 2019 16:00 UTC+0), Early Access will be available for Americas (North/South).
After that, Europe will become available early June and Asia will be available early July.
As you all know well, KurtzPel is a fast-paced, online multiplayer game with a strong emphasis on PvP. That being said, a stable, strong connection between players is very important, and in order to provide Chasers the best service possible, we have to prioritize each region separately, and in order to do that, we have to open access region by region.
Physical server locations for a PvP game are extremely important. Based on the CBT data we’ve collected, for North America, we will have server locations on both the West & East coasts.
Brazil will host the server for South America, and act as the central hub.
The location and size of each of these servers will be tweaked as Early Access progresses.
Our prime goal will be to make the KurtzPel play experience be as smooth as possible, for all our players.
In order to provide the best experience, we will not be allowing cross region play and also transferring of data from one region to another.
Though North and South America will be launching first, players from Europe and Asia need not fret!
For players in Europe (June 2019) and Asia (July 2019), we would like to apologize for the delay, but we will do our best to bring you KurtzPel as soon as possible.
We will be consistently and constantly updating KurtzPel after the Early Access release, and we will continue to improve the content and playability of the game.
With the upcoming release of Europe and Asia, we will be localizing the game for players in those regions.
For South America, we will be adding ‘Brazil – Portuguese’ and ‘LATAM – Spanish’ for our localization line-up.
We want to also discuss the payment model of KurtzPel.
In order to allow everyone to be able to experience KurtzPel, the core content of the game will be Free to Play!
In the spirit and history of the quality games we produce at KOG, all players will be able to enjoy the core content of KurtzPel PVE & PVP for free.
In future updates, additional Karma and Costumes will be available for purchase in the form of DLC on the Steam Store Page, or they’ll be added to the in-game Item Shop to be purchased directly.
These will be cash purchase options. The price and content of these will be revealed in the future.
Lastly, Founder’s Packs for KurtzPel are currently in the works, and they will mainly consist of ‘Additional’ Karmas’ and ‘Exclusive Costumes set’ that can only be acquired by purchasing the Founder’s Pack. The details of the Founder’s Packs will be available at a later date.
It has already been a year and a half since we showcased KurtzPel to the World, and we would like to thank each and every one of you for taking this journey with us.
We’re ecstatic to have you all here with us, being as excited about the official launch of KurtzPel as we are.
We owe all of this to each of you, and we promise to improve and polish KurtzPel as we move forward. With your love of the game and constant feedback, we will achieve great things!
