Men of War II rolls out Open Beta in May

Greetings, Commanders!

We're proud to announce that an open beta for Men of War II will begin on Thursday, May 11, and conclude on Monday, May 15, making it the second opportunity to get hands-on with the game after the initial Multiplayer Tech Test last month. It will be available for free here on Steam, enlisting in the open beta is simple:

  • You need to head over to the Men of War II Steam store page where you will have the option to ‘Request Access’ for a ‘Men of War II Playtest’ - you can do so right now and get an e-mail notification once the beta goes live. Otherwise, clicking the button at anytime during the beta will grant you instant access.
  • If you have already taken part in the Multiplayer Tech Test, you do not need to sign up again, the ‘Men of War II Playtest’ will simply become available to install/play in your Steam Library once the beta starts.
  • Wait and jump into the action on Thursday, May 11.

The upcoming beta will once again feature a varied selection of multiplayer maps and modes but will also, for the first time ever, include single-player content. The developers are also implementing a number of gameplay changes based on your feedback, commanders. But please keep in mind, the open beta is not fully representative of the final game, as it is still under development. In the developers' own words:

"With Men of War II, we aim to deliver exciting new experiences and make fresh gameplay innovations to the Men of War franchise," said Maxim Kamensky, Men of War II Producer at Best Way. " We remain ever grateful to our long-time fans for their support and feedback, and where possible, will be incorporating some of the highly requested changes into the upcoming beta, with further additions being made at release and beyond.”

We will be introducing the new content and the planned gameplay changes during the weeks leading up to the beta. For now, however, we would like to share a few insights from the previous round of public testing. We hope you find the data interesting:
