Victor OpenDev Available Now

Over the course of Humankind’s development, we have given our players several opportunities to try the game and let us know what they think through the OpenDev program. Every time, we saw valuable survey data, interesting discussions, and constructive feedback. And every time, the OpenDev period was almost immediately followed by one question: When will be the next time we can test the game and give feedback? 

The answer to this question is as simple as it is exciting: Right now! 




From Thursday, April 22nd to Monday, May 3rd, the new Victor OpenDev is available on Steam and the Epic Games Store. In this OpenDev scenario, you will have up to 150 turns to guide your civilization from the Neolithic Era to the end of the Early Modern Era. Once you finish the game, you will be given a chance to fill out a survey, as in the previous OpenDev.


Those of you who have participated in OpenDev before may notice that this scope is very similar to the Lucy OpenDev. While we know that our fans are eager to try the final two eras of the game, we want to focus on the content we shared before and be able to compare the feedback, as we have made many improvements to the game since the Lucy OpenDev. Here are just a few examples: 


  • Rebalanced game pace, economy, and cultures 
  • Improved District placement User Interface 
  • Improved territory and outpost management 
  • Improved Diplomacy User Interface 
  • New Unit Classes like Anti-Cavalry 



 



So how do you play the Victor OpenDev to give us your feedback? There are a few ways to get your hands on it: 


  • If you have played the Lucy OpenDev 
    1. Go to your rewards page on Games2Gether and resync your Steam-link with the button at the top 
    2. The Victor OpenDev will appear in your library ready to be installed and launched 
    3. If it does not, go to the Steam Store page of the Victor OpenDev and click the Play button to start the installation
    4. NOTE: Somey keys from the Twitch Drop campaign may have been revoked. If you got access to Lucy through Twitch Drops before, and cannot access the Victor OpenDev after following the Troubleshooting steps, your key may have been revoked. In that case, you can earn a new key through the current Twitch Drop campaign.
  • If you have pre-purchased Humankind on Steam 
    1. Log in to your Games2Gether Account 
    2. Go to your profile page and link your Steam account 
    3. Go to your Rewards page and claim the OpenDev reward at the top of the page 
    4. The Victor OpenDev will appear in your library ready to be installed and launched 
    5. If it does not, go to the Steam Store page of the Victor OpenDev and click the Play button to start the installation 
  • If you have pre-purchased Humankind on Epic Games Store 
    1. The Victor OpenDev should be ready to be installed and launched from your EGS library 
  • If you have not pre-purchased Humankind on either store and have not played the Lucy OpenDev 
    1. Log in to your Games2Gether Account 
    2. Go to your profile page 
    3. Go to your Account Settings 
    4. Link your Twitch account; you will be prompted to log in to Twitch to confirm your identity 
    5. Watch a total of 3 hours of Humankind on participating channels (watch time does not need to be consecutive) 
    6. Claim the Twitch Drop 
    7. Go to your Rewards page and claim the OpenDev reward at the top of the page 
    8. The Victor OpenDev will appear in your Steam library ready to be installed and launched 
    9. If it does not, go to the Steam Store page of the Victor OpenDev and click the Play button to start the installation
  • If you are having trouble accessing the Victor OpenDev after these steps, please check the Troubleshooting Steps first.


Speaking of Twitch drops, this OpenDev presents another chance to earn the Influencer Avatars through drops on their participating channels. Log in to your Games2Gether account and make sure your Twitch account is linked as described above, and you’re set to earn the avatar drops as you watch their channels. If you cannot catch their streams live this time around, no reason to worry though: there will be other chances to earn these Avatars, and you will still be able to play against them after release. 



Go check out the Victor OpenDev, and let us know what you think in the survey and the Victor OpenDev Forum. 

And have fun with Humankind!

No it is not here either, I do worry that this may have something to do with the fact that the Lucy OpenDev was removed from steam libraries after the beta in order to prevent people from continuing to play it (otherwise I probably would have put in /several/ more games between then and now). If this OpenDev is using the same keygen/steamid it's entirely possible that anyone who had it removed from their library will be unable to access it, this coming from someone who played the Lucy OpenDev and still does not have access to the Victor OpenDev

Once again I am imitating the Bernie Sanders meme to ask you ...

Please include a list of Twitch Streamers who can drop massive Humankind sized loads?

I also can't acces it. I did play Lucy Open Beta, deleted it after it was over. Unlinked both Steam and Twitch and relinked them. I can leave a review on the Victor Open Dev page but there is no Play button or any button at all. It is also not in my rewards.


//Edit: After watching a Twitch Stream for 3 hours and claiming the Victor Open Dev it now appeard in my Steam Library. If you are like me and did not get it, even though you did participate in Lucy Open Dev, you may want to do this as well.

When you already asked for an extension on university homework - but have to make clear to your lecturer of which utter importance another extension for the deadline is.

I also participated in the lucy opendev and cannot get victor opendev unlock. I've resynced a few times and even relinked steam account a few times, nothing seem to work.

Also there is no play button on the steam page for it for me.

That's my situation - Steam and G2G act as if I have it (Steam did even before I re-synced my G2G account), but it doesn't show up in my library.. IT may be relevant that I uninstalled Lucy after it expired - did an ID get reused somewhere but not everywhere?
