Initially, pre-alpha testing was scheduled to start on March 5 for Into the Echo has been delayed and will take place over the weekend of March 12th and 13th. The Etlok Studios team is still continuing to register on their website for those who are interested in trying out the beta, and they’ve just arrived. released a brand new lore blog that establishes several key elements that await players.
The new lore blog is called “A Planet on the Brink of War” and it offers a lot of information and a taste of what we can expect from Into the Echo. It opens with a man named Krazos staring at the giant snake sculpture (recently revealed by the team) with no one else around. He searches for answers and hopes that some cave will give them to him.
This initiation then delves into some of the history of the world of Raava, where the Order of the Silver Birch, for whom Krazos worked, has been responsible for researching Qen, the force that gives human powers. According to this account, the Order was “the most important authority for Qen”. Krazos considers the time spent studying Qen and its place in the world, its applications, and confidence in the Order’s knowledge until recently.

Rothaka, a race of “so-called liberators who have appeared out of nowhere” and skillfully display their incredible knowledge of Qen. These profound and powerful abilities, known as “Shadow Qen”, were enhanced above anything else, yet wielded with ease by Rothaka.
Soon there will be war, and Krazos has questions. If he can travel to the past and learn more about Qen and its origins, perhaps he can find the answer. This establishes the basic lore of the world we will enter Into the Echoand a purpose of the time travel element.
