Fate Core Beta Released

Thank you to everyone who expressed interest in the Fate Core Beta! We’re happy to announce that the beta is now available to all of our beta testers – if you signed up, check your email and download it now!

For those who haven’t heard, Fate Core is coming to Hero Lab®! Our award-winning character creation software has been gamers’ go-to character management tool for years. Hero Lab already supports games like the Pathfinder® Roleplaying Game, Shadowrun, Mutants & Masterminds and more, and we’re excited to add the multi-award winning RPG from Evil Hat to that list.

For anyone who signed up to be a Beta tester, you should soon receive an email with instructions on how to access the game system and report bugs. If you signed up for the Beta and haven’t received an email by Saturday February 8th, please check your spam folder. If you still cannot find the email, please email our support team.

If you’re interested in Fate Core within Hero Lab, but missed the Beta sign up, you can still sign up!  We’ll release another wave of invitations soon. Don’t forget to stay up to date with news on the public release by signing up for monthly newsletter, “liking” us on Facebook, and “following” us on Twitter.

Thanks again to our Beta team for participating! Because of your feedback, you’ll help us ensure everything is working well prior to public release. Make sure to break Hero Lab out for your next FATE session, and let us know how it goes!
