I received an invitation to the Closed Beta. Now what?

Congratulations, and welcome! Follow the instructions in the email to register your key on Steam and start playing. Once you’ve been granted access to the game, you will keep your access for the duration of all Closed Beta playtests.


Do I need anything besides my key to play in the Closed Beta?
You will also need to download Steam, which can be done here: http://store.steampowered.com/about/


I received a key but can’t play right away, due to a very important pancake-eating contest / other commitment.

No worries! If you are unable to participate now,  you will keep your access for the duration of our Closed Beta.


Will I be sent a new key every update?

You will keep the same key, as it is bound to your account. Nice!


Can I share my key?

Keys are bound to your account, so sharing them isn’t possible.


What happens after the Closed Beta?

We will launch on Steam! Keep an eye out for the date.

What happens to my progress?

We make important changes with each new update, so any progress made in our Closed Beta will be reset as needed while patching. The servers are also subject to a reset at any time, meaning that progress could be lost while playing.

Do I have to spend money on the Closed Beta?

Nope! Survived By is free to play, and no purchase is required. If you wish, you now have the option to purchase Electrum using Steam Wallet. Electrum can also be earned for free through play and utilization of the Bloodstone economy.


Is there anywhere outside of the forums that I can talk about Survived By?

Yes! We have an official Discord Server (https://discord.gg/tgtJPNC) and subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/SurvivedBy/). You can also follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/playsurvivedby/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/playsurvivedby).
