Hello, potential patrons of the Pit! We’re currently still working out the details of our Pit People closed beta, which we’ve announced will be coming to Xbox One first with Steam to follow. The plan will be to post the registration form online as soon as we can!
In the meantime, let me introduce you to one of my personal favorite fighters in our game: Hair Trolls. These gigantic creatures rock their strength with shiny, black tresses all over their bodies.

There was a lot of love for Blue Knight this year!

We also continued to hand out free Pit People bags and Behemoth lanyards. Look at how happy we are to give out free swag!

In the final hour of Day 2, we took a stroll over to the Rooster Teeth stage to watch Cow Chop take on Pit People.
