November Producer’s Letter

November Producer’s Letter

Greetings Community!

By popular demand, at the end of December we are holding a Content Creator Showcase week. During this week anyone who participates in Pre-Alpha testing will be welcome to stream and/or record footage for their content channels. This will be an unlimited, NDA-free week to share your journey in Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen. The event will begin at midnight Pacific Time, Sunday, December 24 and run through until 11:59 pm PT, Monday, January 1, 2024. We request that content creators wait until that time before they begin gathering footage for their content. Posting of screenshots and video outside of the purposes of content creation will still require written permission from Visionary Realms, as per the rules outlined in the verbal NDA lift announcement. Please remember that support staff will be limited during the holiday week, so plan ahead.
