CLOSED ALPHA GAMEPLAY DETAILS
Once you complete the tutorial, one game mode will be available to play in Closed Alpha: Hunt (available in Solo and Squad variants). Renegade squads must scour X-Isle for arcane Artifacts to extract and score points with. Take down enemy players and steal their loot, stumble across it in PvE encounters with enemies, or solve puzzles to find even more loot. If you can secure four Glyphs to open a Vault, you’ll be swimming in Artifacts!
The Renegades that manage to extract the most loot during a session are the winners. However, that doesn’t mean the runners-up go back to the Riftwake empty-handed! Your loot is persistent, so you’ll be able to carry any successfully extracted loot across different games, and use it to customize and upgrade your Renegade.
