Technical Alpha is the second phase of development of Camelot Unchained after the P.A.T.s when anyone with an Alpha account can play. This is considered an "old school Alpha" which means that it is a true Technical Alpha and far from a finished game unlike many modern definitions of Alpha. It opened on March 11th 2015. Alpha is expected to continue until August 2015 when Beta is tentatively scheduled to begin.
Alpha is currently under NDA which means:
- No re-streaming (or streaming) content
- No posting information except in the appropriate CSE forum
- No screen-caps of the gameplay anywhere except in the permissible CSE forum. (Some sections are restricted to Alpha, and IT)
City State Entertainment affiliated with the popular streamer CohhCarnage to share their first Alpha footage on March 28th 2015 and he is expected to stream more Alpha gameplay. At some point the NDA will lift and other sharing will be possible.
Alpha is held at scheduled times, during which anyone who has an account with Alpha access can play a control point game in a Battle-Ground-like zone. The zone was enlarged to 25 times the Pre-Alpha size with all new terrain. New features were added to enrich the game from the previous pre-alpha testing such as, keeps and structures around the control points, the ability system v1, basic sounds, improvements to the PhysX system and the engine rendering , the ability to drop a light in the world, sun and moons added, and C.U.B.E.. The C.U.B.E. environment is accessible 24/7 even when the regular servers are offline. Alpha takes place on the Wyrmling server (the production server), on the stable build. Alpha tests have accommodated up to 1.100 players and bots without noticeable server lag. Many features are being added to Alpha at this time and can be found in user Stories which lists the specifics of each one.
