What is this?
Open World Alpha is your opportunity to to play with a small slice of MetalCore – and for us to get feedback on some early tuning and server performance.
Open World Alpha is expected to run for several months, starting with small windows of time, and expanding with more gameplay and more server uptime.
Have specific questions? See below, or join us on Discord.

Open World Alpha – Open Times:
UTC – servers will be hosted in our Asia data center. 6pm to 9pm Pacific // 1:00 UTC to 4:00 UTC
– servers will be hosted in our North America data center.
Infinite Games will be resetting Player Data Progress at the conclusion of the Thursday OWA North America Servers running (Approx. 9 p.m. PST) and will be finished before the start (Approx 6 a.m. PST) of the Friday Asia Listed Server Time.
TLDR; Log in Thursday to use stuff you have already unlocked before we wipe data - and then come back Friday and Saturday so you aren’t left behind while everyone else is powering up and unlocking vehicles.
Let us know how the game feels from a fresh perspective of looting and unlocking by using that feedback button in the launcher!
Please check back here during the test windows for any last minute changes and updates. We may be adding more days and times soon.

To put it broadly, a gaming PC built 5-6yrs ago should be able to play METALCORE, at reasonable framerate, at low settings. If you find that METALCORE is not working the way you’d expect on your PC, please get in touch with us through a feedback ticket.
Please note – these are for the current phase of Open World Alpha only. We continue to add content as well as optimizations, so our final hardware requirements are likely to change.
The game is a work in progress and you should expect to encounter unfinished, unpolished, or downright broken content along the way. Stick with us, because things will only get better from here.
Known Game issues:
> TL;DR – game is an Alpha, and still has lots of WIP elements
> User receives ” Lost connection to host ” message after logging in with newly created account
> Please restart and try again
> Give up won’t work after pressing SPACE when character is downed
> Hold space for 1 second to give up
> Heavy Assault’s infinite ammo ability doesn’t function after switching weapons
> Sometimes the player may be spawned in midair with his head through the ceiling inside the base
> Engineer: effect when using main ability is not visible to the player who used the ability
> Scout: NPCs can see the player even if he uses the “invisible” ability
> Character remains on the map & leaderboard after the user disconnects from the server
> Some resources have no weight
> The weight of the items from inside of a container does not update in real time
> Some Mech’s SFXs for weapons and walking/running are distorted or missing
> Captured bunkers spawn enemies No ability to drop items from inventory
> AI will continue to shoot at dead corpse
Known Launcher issues:
> TL;DR – Launcher is still and Alpha, and has lots of WIP elements
> Users are not able to change the install path. Launcher puts the game in the Documents folder.
> Launcher does not put a shortcut on the Desktop. Can be started with “Infinite Launcher” found in the Start Menu under Apps, or by relaunching the installer.
> Game Installation or updating randomly stops without any context In the error pop-up
> “Error Getting Access Key” message. We’re working on a fix for this. Please try again.
> “Error Installing the Game” message. A couple of things trigger this error.
> Confirm you have at least 30gb of storage space to install the game on your primary drive. The game does not allow you to change the path from your ‘Documents’ folder. This functionality is coming.
> Make sure your network connection is maintained during download and installation.
This can happen with a network interruption. Launcher seems to re-download the whole game, but it’s actually trying to continue from where it left off. This gets it in a bad state.
> Launcher got into a bad state. Last option once you’ve checked your storage space and connection – delete the ‘InfiniteGames’ folder. This will start the process over again from scratch.
