Alpha testing is its last phases as Beta Testing will begin rolling soon.
I had the opportunity to play Island Expeditions briefly at PAX East. For those who don’t know, you queue to Island Expeditions by going to a table on the west corner of the Zuldazar Port, or outside the lower end of the Boralus Inn.
