The Exiled Experiments With Not Letting People Play, It Doesn’t Work

The Exiled is a game that MMO Fallout has covered to some extent over the past year, it’s a quirky little MMO that seems to suffer mostly from poor marketing and low population, the latter likely influenced by the former. Oh and the developer Fairytale Distillery has made some arguably boneheaded experimental moves over the past few months.

One of The Exiled’s draws is that the game runs on seasons, allowing the team to experiment with new modes and ideas, see what works and what doesn’t. Back in August, with the launch of season 6, the team decided to take the living world and make it not so living by reducing the availability of servers to just three hours per day. Odds are if you attempted to give the game a look during the last two months, you logged in during one of the 21 daily hours where the servers were off.

It was a well-meaning idea, limit the server availability so players would be logging in during the same hours, but in practice it just meant that nobody was playing. Literally. With the next season set to start on October 6, servers will once again be available 24 hours each day. Fairytale Distillery will also be refraining from making any big content changes until they have more of a concrete plan for the game’s future.

 We will go back to the drawing board with our plans to re-set the game. Expect smaller bug fixes from us in the coming seasons but no major changes. We are still supporting the game, keeping the servers running and answering your support tickets but as long as we have no convincing plan for the future of the game we will not make any further major changes to it.

The Exiled Hits Steam Today

Fairytale Distillery’s MMORPG The Exiled has officially hit Steam. The Exiled bills itself as a social sandbox, combining strategy with survival and showcasing full loot and unrestricted PvP. The game is available to try on Steam for free for 7 days, after which you can continue playing with one of the game’s access packs.

“We believe giving all players an opportunity to try our game for 7 days will be incredibly beneficial to the long tail and overall support of The Exiled during its time as an early access title.” said Fairytale Distillery Managing Director Alexander Zacherl.

Pay to Win: The Exiled Has No Time For That

The Exiled is an upcoming MMORPG hitting ground February 23, and the development team over at Fairytale Distillery want you to know that their game has no place for pay to win tactics. For starters, everyone access to a seven day free trial which can be extended indefinitely with a simple one time payment of $19.99 minimum.

Your payment allows you to reserve one character name forever, one character slot per season, a cosmetic title, avatar picture, frame, and background, and unique skins for tier 0 equipment. Higher tiers reward various skins and pets, and even the soundtrack and art book, but you won’t be able to buy in-game power. The top purchase tiers do reward a higher fame gain (unlocking account ranks) and extra daily challenge slots.

Fairytale Distillery’s latest press release also notes that certain regions including Russia and Brazil will have lower local prices.

The Exiled Hits Steam February 23rd

The Exiled is an upcoming game that promises to merge survival strategy with skill-based PVP combat, and the last time we covered the title was to point out how the developers plan on handling low server population during alpha. The good news is, we’ll be able to see just how well that works as the team at Fairytale Distillery has announced a launch date of February 23 for early access launch on Steam. Early access packages will be available starting at $19.99 and going up to $79.99, containing cosmetic goodies based on which option you choose.

Even better, all players will have access to a 7-day free trial in case you’d actually like to play the game before you throw down real money on it. For more information, check out the FAQ here and the game on Steam.
