BREAKING NEWS: The HV-MTL Forge Rift Will Not Open Tomorrow And The Hunt Is Delayed Until Next Week

Rift-Mas isn’t canceled but it is delayed after the Bored Ape Yacht Club announced that they found a few bugs in the game.

On Wednesday, the BAYC took to Twitter and announced that HV-MTL Holders and their Mechs will have to wait a bit longer to enter the Rift and begin the Hunt!

“During final testing, we discovered a few bugs preventing the Rift from opening tomorrow, September 7th,” the BAYC wrote. “As a result The Rift will now open sometime in the next week to ensure everyone has a smooth experience. We’ll share an updated and confirmed release date this coming Monday.”

At this time is it unclear how, if at all, this delay will impact the BAYC’s HV-MTL seasonal schedule which currnelty has season four ending on September 28th, Season 5 ending on October 12th , and season 6 ending on November 2nd, the day before Ape Fest 2023 begins.

While HV-MTL Holders and their Mechs won’t be entering the Rift tomorrow, we do know that once they do voyage into the unknown, they will be exploring, collecting and fighting in an effort to craft items, upgrade their robots, win $Ape, and prepare for the final boss battle.

As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, in order to go through the Rift and participate in the next phase of the Hunt, players will need to build out their HV-Homes to the point that they can see the ‘Rift’ on their board.

“Before you can go anywhere, you’ll need to get to the Rift,” the BAYC wrote in the guide. “This is the easiest part of your expedition: just build out your tiles into the fog of war (shrouded area) until the Rift Portal is in sight. Off you go.”

Note, players do not need to connect to the 'Rift,' they only need to be able to see it.

“One small change we made here is NOT requiring a direct connection to the rift,” Yuga Labs’ Social Lead Ngbshpend told the community last month when asked how players can participate in the game going forward. “Just need to see it aka build out enough into the dark space. Hopefully this allows for easier entry and more HVs in the rift!”

The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow the HV-MTL Forge and will let you know when the club announces a new Rift entry date. Stay tuned for updates!
