Hey Survivalists,

Alpha 20 is getting close and we are looking ahead at the impending experimental release. That said we are recruiting more qualifying streamers for our Alpha 20 pre-release weekend streamer event. We know that there are many streamers out there who have played our game for their audiences and who would love to be a part of the pre-release streaming weekend. There were several hopeful streamers who did not quite qualify for the A19 event who hopefully have been able to grow their audience and can join us this time for A20.

Here are the details:

1. In order to qualify you must have as a minimum, 5000 followers or subscribers on a single site. That can be Twitch, YouTube, or another site.
If you are a partnered Twitch streamer then that automatically qualifies you regardless of followers.

2. You must record an announcement to your viewers on your channel that you will be showing early footage of A20. It can be its own video or part of one of your regular episodes. We don't have a firm date yet but you can just tell them it is going to be happening soon.

3. You must sign up for the official forum and send Roland a message that includes the official business email address of your channel and a link to the announcement video you made.

4. Once we have verified that you are a content creator that qualifies I will give you access to our stream team subforum where all announcement regarding the event will be made including the password to access A20 on the first day of the event.

5. If you are already on the list because you qualified for A19 last time, you don't need to do anything except hype up your viewers. You are already qualified for the A20 event. If for some reason you don't want to be part of the event this time please let me know and I will remove you from the list.


1) The announcement must be a video or a recorded clip from a stream that is posted on your channel. This is part of our verification that the video is really from the channel it claims to be from and it is also for marketing and hype.

2) PLEASE have the link cued up to where you make the announcement if part of a larger episodic video.

3) I want to emphasize that this is NOT a contest. If you meet the requirements, you qualify. So go ahead and do the announcement and release it if you qualify.

4 IMPORTANT: The password you will be given is to download the A20 update. It is not a steam key for the game itself. We are not giving the game away for free for this event. We actually want people who have played before and know what they're doing when they show A20. Get the game and play for a few weeks on A19 if you wish to stream during the event but have never played 7 Days to Die.

Streaming FAQ

Q: When is Alpha 20 coming out and when do the streamers get access to it?

A: When its ready. Don't claim specific dates. Some streamers did this last time and it makes everyone look bad. We are shooting for before the end of October provided all goes well but things sometimes do not go well and delays happen. The public release of Alpha 20 will happen on a Monday. Our team of streamers will get it the Friday/Saturday preceding that. (2-3 days)

Q: If I’m approved by TFP to stream Alpha 20 how do I get access?

A: We plan to send out the password to the qualifying streamers on the Friday before the Monday that we will release A20-experimental allowing a full weekend prior to the public release. You will go to the Beta Opt-in screen in Steam and enter the password which will make the A20 experimental version appear in the list of betas you can opt into.

Q: What if I don’t have 5000 but I’m super loyal and really want to stream A20 early?

A: We encourage you to do all you can to hype up and advertise your channel to get your followers/ subscriptions up to the minimum amount. If you don’t reach the goal for A20, we plan to do this again for A21 and we’ll welcome your participation for that event.

Q: If I'm a partnered Twitch streamer can I still qualify if I have fewer than 5000 subscribers?

A: Yes. A Twitch partnership is all you need if you have one.

Q: Do you have to have a presence on both Youtube and Twitch? What if I use a different provider?

A: You only have to have a presence on one site where we can go to your channel via your link and see your announcement as well as your viewership numbers. We chose followers on Twitch because that is the most easily publicly viewable measure. Same with subscribers on Youtube. If your alternate streaming/video publishing site has a measure of your viewership we will look at that.

Q: What if I’m a well known personality, I was in the event last time, and you know I qualify. Do I still have to do the enrollment video?

A: No. You don't have to do anything since you are already on our list. We figure you will want to hype it up but you don't need to send a link to us to verify who you are.

Q: If the game is good enough for streamers to show it, isn’t it good enough for players to play it?

A: The version the streamers will be playing will be the same release candidate we plan for the whole community (who wish to test experimental). But we have found that releasing an experimental version on a Monday is much better for us to be able to respond quickly and effectively with hotfixes and get new builds out to you that play better. The whole team isn’t always available on the weekend to address showstoppers but on that Monday we’ll be ready. In the meantime, we hope you will post your feedback on what you see and help us catch things that might be simple to fix before the general release on Monday.

Q: Why are streamers getting special treatment? Didn’t I pay for early access?

A: All of our customers who have paid for early access are getting the early access that they paid for. At the same time we have to acknowledge that streamers provide a huge media benefit to the industry in today’s world. Being able to reach potentially hundreds of thousands of viewers over the weekend to get the word out that A20 is finally here is a powerful and amazing tool we wish to use. At the same time allowing the streamers to show early footage of an update is something of great value to us and them. We love all of our fans and we hope you all will love the A20 update when you get to play it. Plus, for those who enjoy this sort of media it is a great deal of fun that we wish to Pimp out to y'all.

Q: What if I usually stream with a partner? Can my partner get access as well?

A: Yes. We will allow qualifying streamers to include anyone they wish to join them in their stream. We want teams to be able to stream together. All those who receive access this way only have permission to have their gameplay shown on the qualifying streamer's channel. They cannot go and stream it themselves on their own channel.
