How to Get Into the Project Loki Playtest

The long-awaited first title from Theorycraft Games, Project Loki, is getting another playtest. Here’s how to join.

Project Loki is the brainchild of former League of Legends developer Joe Tung, a “League meets Apex meets Smash” style game that promises to be community-driven and fun enough to have you playing for thousands of hours with your squad.

The game is still far from its release, but gameplay has potential so far. The large maps and interesting mobility options have intrigued gamers, especially because it looks like it could be an entirely new subgenre of game. Teams of highly customizable heroes work together to defeat other teams and take control of the map, which consists of an abundance of segmented locations.

If this sounds up your alley, you can join the Project Loki playtest this week.

When is the Project Loki Playtest?

Theorycraft Games just announced an upcoming playtest. Here’s when it will be available:

  • Thursday, August 24: 5 - 9 PM PST
  • Friday, August 25: 5 - 9 PM PST
  • Saturday, August 26: 11 AM - 3 PM PST

What Is In the Project Loki Playtest?

This time around, the playtest will focus on movement, according to developers. Check out the unique ways to traverse the large map and what are your best tactics for moving around the map as a squad.

But that’s not it. You can also check out the first-ever Project Loki DEATHMATCH SHOWMATCH. It will be taking place on Saturday at 11:15 AM PST. The “smol tournament” will feature three “top deathmatch enthusiast squads” and one squad made up of developers. Join the Discord to find out where to watch.

How to Join the Project Loki Playtest

If you want to take part in the playtest, there’s still time. Head to Theorycraft Games’ official website. When you click “Sign Up For Playtest” you’ll be brought to a separate page with a form to fill out.

It will be the same information as last time:

  • Enter your email
  • Provide your Discord
  • Submit your Steam ID
  • Choose the region you’ll be playing from
  • Let them know which games you’re currently playing the most (this is optional)
  • Answer “yes” or “no” when asked if you work at a competing game studio

Before jumping into the mayhem, you can also head to the Discord to see some patch notes and a new “fireside chat” from Project Loki’s executive producer. This should be coming out later this week, although no exact date was given.
