The start of the fifth pre-Alpha test of indie MMORPG Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen was initially scheduled for early 2020, but later this date was changed. The developers have not yet announced the exact start time of the new phase, but they have revealed the date of the stress test, which was called "Pre-Alpha 5 Shakeout". It will take place on September 5 and 6, and the servers will not be open 24 hours a day. The detailed schedule is expected to be published later. Users who purchased one of the VIP sets for $1000 will be able to take part in the subsequent Pre-Alpha 5 Shakeout.

During the Shakeout, the players will be to choose between two classes: Dire Lord and Shaman. Also, players will be able to evaluate the redesigned combat system, which, according to the developers, has become much more responsive, reliable and skill-specific; the climbing mechanics will also appear in the game. The test results will determine the Pre-Alpha 5 date.
