Hey, really hyped for the game, been waiting for the multiplayer.
I do have a few questions though regarding the open beta
Can i play the open beta outside of the steam client? I have standalone Last Epoch launcher and i’d rather play that way.
Is there gonna be a wipe after the open beta?
Otherwise, keep up the good work

This limited event is only possibel through steam.
When the patch 0.9 releases on March 9th, that#s when you are able to play the standalone again
Yes this limited time event will happen on a entire different envrionment than 0.9 release.
All progress from that event will be wiped.
Your regular characters that you have on the current live version (Patch 0.8.5f) will move to offlien characters in the 0.9 patch.
Sorry to disappoint, but 0.9 is Steam only.
Discord is the easiest way to communicate over voice, video, and text. Chat, hang out, and stay close with your friends and communities.

I must have missed the notes, where it say that its steam only ?
It was confirmed on the Discord.
On my phone or i would provide a screenshot from the link i posted
Fwiw - you can link your LE account to your Steam account.
I’ll also include Mike’s follow-up post to that, which states:
So it’s unknown at this time if this will change in the future, but currently patch 0.9 is planned to be exclusive to Steam.
EDIT: For those impacted by this, here is the support article explaining how to link your LE account to your Steam account so you can access the game on Steam:
This Free Multiplayer Beta is only half of the story mode and not all content like the multiplayer events before?
February 18, 2023, 3:45pm
Yes, that is correct.
This event has content up to Chapter 4 (killing Admiral Harton on the Dreadnought)
That is correct. The Arena, Monolith, and 2 of the 3 dungeons will not be accessible during this Free Multiplayer Beta.
Afaik, Lightless Arbor Keys begin dropping from Rare enemies in level 25+ zones. So, provided nothing has changed, it should be possible to get a key and run that dungeon.
Are the spots limited? Or does hitting the button guarantee a place in the beta?
February 19, 2023, 7:23pm
Technically I guess the spots are probably limited by something but I don’t see a way we could ever hit it. You’re in!
Thank you! I was mostly worried for my friends on the edge about purchasing, but willing to test it out firsthand.
February 19, 2023, 7:31pm
Yea, just everyone sign up. We don’t have a limit that we are enforcing.
February 21, 2023, 5:59pm
Following up on the limit, I signed up but there is a message like it’s full actually.
Is it just the wording or are there really no more spots?
February 21, 2023, 6:15pm
I’m not sure what it’s saying but it is not full. There is room. It will not become full.
February 21, 2023, 6:21pm
Okay thank you!
Here’s the message:
You’ve requested access! Keep an eye out for an email notification from Steam when the developer is ready to accept more participants.
February 21, 2023, 6:27pm
I think that this is actually the “you’re in” message. It’s just an automated reply that Steam gives.
Resonances is brilliant! 100/10
Thank you !
