Krater Opens Up To Reveal Pre-Order Beta

That looks a very blowupable bar.

Fatshark’s Krater goes into beta testing today. The tactics-focused action RPG is due out on the 12th June, but buying it now lets you get in and start playing right away, and now there’s much more of the game available to those who do.

And there’s an interesting way to buy the indie-made game. You can pick up a copy of the so-called “Collector’s Edition” for €15, which will give you a Steam key and access to the unfinished game. Or you can choose to pay €40 for the Fan Edition, and your name in the credits. Or perhaps get the Patron Edition for €100, which nets you the ability to name one of the game’s rare items. It doesn’t actually say you get that item. Clearly these higher prices are not designed to reward the buyer with extra content, but rather a way to let people support the project beyond the basic cost.

Boasting permanent death, that certainly suggests a more hardcore approach to the genre, and I’m intrigued to find out more about the top-down Syndicate-like tactics they’ve promised. Have some footage:
