Citadel Studios has announced that the pre-alpha for their MMORPG , Shards Online will start on December 3rd for $75 backers, December 10th for anyone backing the game at $40+. Servers will be up 24/7 for the duration of the pre-alpha event with no wipes.

The major focus of game system updates for the Pre-Alpha 3 phase is on controls and the new player experience. As such,  we’ve completely revamped the controls, added a brand new targeting system to make combat far more responsive and accurate, and we’ve extended the new player quest that includes 7 profession quests and 4 exploration quests to get players acclimated to life before setting them out on their own.
