OPEN ACCESS RELEASE!

Postby [EUG]MadMat » Tue 18 Mar 2014 15:08

Hi,

Open beta will finally be made available tomorrow, Wednesday 19th, exact hour is still being discussed, but should be "Valve time", meaning 7 PM here in France and something like 9 AM on US East Coast.

This beta will feature:
- access to all units.
- improved deck creation system, with clearer distinctions between thematic decks, and availabilitybonus per nation.
- multiplayer only, with 4 ground maps (two from the closed beta + two new ones).
- some new balancing.

What we are expecting are feedbacks about general game mechanics, map & deck balance. The latter doesn't imply "buff my nation / nerf the other" rants though ... ;)

Naval part won't be featured yet, but shall be soon. We're still playtesting it.
Hence why the multiplayer maps are presently restricted to ground maps only, no mixed or naval maps yet.

Some known issues:
- some units still have placeholders. If I recall, it mostly concerns the WZ-551 (aka "Chinese VAV") and the VTT-323 series.
- some localization (unit names) issues: many are already fixed, but weren't generated in the last version.
- pre-made decks aren't up to date with the last deck changes.

Will there be new maps featured, or is it the same two ground maps from the closed beta?

Yay! Really looking forward to it. :)

@The guy above me Read it carefully...Mat specifically says there'll be two new maps.

So this open beta, is it only available to those who have pre-ordered or are previous closed beta testers also going to allowed back despite not owning the game.

I ask because poverty has struck and I don't know when I am going to be able to scrape together enough Tiberium to pay for Red Dragon :cry:

It is my only 'must have' game of this year.
