MEN OF WAR II – OPEN BETA
As the upcoming real-time strategy from the World War II era Men of War II is nearing to its release on September 20, we would like to give players one more chance to try the game out during the final Open Beta, being available to download and play for free from August 10 to August 14 on Steam.
As a reward for covering Men of War II during the Open Beta, we offer an opportunity to get a free Steam key for the full game upon release. All creators who post genuine and entertaining coverage will be eligible for this offer.
The conditions are simple:
When will you start offering keys for the Open Beta?You can already claim your Steam key for the Open Beta. However, it's not possible to install and play the game before the Beta goes live on Friday, August 10.
For how long will the Open Beta be available?The Beta will start on Friday, August 10 and conclude on Monday, August 14.
What content will be included in the Open Beta?
The Open Beta will feature not just multiplayer modes and maps or single-player missions from the previous two playtests, but also brand new content: Classic Mode for fans of the Men of War franchise, where players call in their forces based on a combination of each unit’s individual timer, as well as the player’s own pool of resources, and Realism Mode, which offers a higher chance of disabling and capturing enemy vehicles, fewer visual cues concerning the visibility and health of their units, a more limited range of fire for weapons and many more gameplay changes.
What should my coverage focus on?Anything you find interesting in the game! You can test your skills in various multiplayer game modes (both PvP and PvE) or give a try to any of three available single-player mission, even in co-op with your friends. We also encourage you to check out the new content – Classic Mode and Realism Mode.
I'm a new to the Men of War franchise and don't have much experience with similar strategy titles. Is it a big deal?Not at all! The Open Beta includes several tutorial missions that will introduce you to basic controls. Once you are done with that, we recommend jumping into the Battle of Coisson mission from the American singleplayer campaign which is more approachable for new players, or perhaps playing a match or two agains AI bots on Easy or Normal difficulty.
