Four different access passes can unlock early access
Multiplayer action RPG Big Time has launched early access for Gold Pass holders with redemption starting April 19th, 2022. Those that purchased a Gold Pass NFT on OpenSea or Binance can now redeem it and start exploring Big Time. They also get the bonus of participating in a Gold members VIP onboarding experience.
The online game Big Time is an action RPG that allows users to join teams, hunt monsters, and acquire loot. The game offers unique in-game items such as customized personal weapons and clothes. Big Time has been in development since early 2021 and has now released first access to Gold pass members, with further access unlocked over the coming weeks for other pass holders.
- Gold pass holders can access Big Time from April 19, 2022
- Gold passes can still be purchased for around $6,300 on Opensea
- Learn how to redeem a Gold pass
- Big Time Studios has recruited game industry veterans from Epic Games, Blizzard, EA, and Riot
Originally there were three early access passes, with a fourth Ruby pass being added later. The Ruby pass is awarded to members of the community who helped to grow the game’s following in its early days and members of the community who continue to contribute to the communities’ development. Therefore, the Ruby pass can only be granted through community involvement or purchased on the secondary market, where none are available at writing.
As outlined in the image above, each pass level entitles the holder to different benefits, with Gold pass holders receiving the lion’s share of perks and NFT drops. Importantly the Gold pass is the one that permits players to access Big Time from April 19, while other passes will open up the game to holders in a staggered way over the next few months. VIP passes grant players guaranteed early access to the game. This in turn gives players a head start in accessing game content where limited-edition cosmetic and decorative NFT items can be found.
Importantly all three paid tiers of Access Pass let holders gain early entry and access to NFT drops and exclusive items. Here are the four Early Access VIP Passes for Big Time and the benefits they bring:
