Early tests will have a small number of players, but that number is expected to grow as the tests progress. New testers will be invited for every consecutive test wave and Sign Up for Pre-Alpha testing is still open on the
official website.  

The goal of the Pre-Alpha is to gather unbiased first impression feedback from players and will be conducted under NDA to ensure new waves of testers will join unprejudiced. The purpose of the tests is to answer specific questions about game mechanics in a controlled environment. It’s expected that the game may change considerably during and after Pre-Alpha testing.
