As a friendly reminder, we are not permitting the sharing of any content from Scavengers during this Technical Playtest Weekend. This includes streaming, images, social posts, or articles sharing impressions.

Scavengers is in pre-alpha so you can expect to see bugs, fluctuating performance, and balance issues - which makes your participation and feedback extremely valuable! This Technical Playtest Weekend will allow us to improve on Scavengers, as your feedback will help us continue refining the game. This is even more important as we work towards Closed Beta and Early Access.

In this Technical Playtest, new upgrades have been added to the Loadout screen, allowing you to customize your Explorer’s kit between matches. We’ve also unlocked all the characters for the playtest, so you can find the right Explorer for your playstyle.

[Please note: Character progression and loadouts will be wiped after the playtest. While all Explorers will be playable for the test, some of them will need to be unlocked when the final game is released.]

We’ll be running our Technical Playtest Weekend for 50 hours. Make sure your friends are signed up as well so you can scavenge, fight, and win together!


As always, thank you for being a part of our incredible Scavengers Community!
