Claim Bonuses on Public Test Server

One time grant of 10.000 Bits


Various other goodies:

After some conversation, Trion agreed it would be a good idea to give PTS testers a bit of a bump to aid in the testing process. This includes one-time grants as well as monthly awards of currency, Reputation, and some goodies. This code will supply you with this grant after you enter it either on the Trionworlds website or in the "Redeem Code" section of the in-game store.



One-time grants:

  • 10,000 Arkforge
  • All 5 DLCs
  • +2 Character slots
  • 1 Biohazard lockbox
  • 1 Powertech lockbox
  • 3 T4 Lockboxes
  • 1 Machinist lockbox
  • 1 Outlaw lockbox
  • 1 Survivalist lockbox
  • 1 Veteran Lockbox
  • 25 +15 slot inventory modules

  • 4 Jackpot lockboxes
  • 30 days Patron Pass
  • 300 of each reputation

NOTE: These grants are for the PTS only! You will need to claim everything from the Claim Item section of the store except for the Patron Pass, character slots, and DLC's. These are added automatically.
