Armored Warfare Rolls Into Early Access
Sporting a trailer full of armored vehicles of all types but lacking in any information, Armored Warfare, looking to feed the hunger of anyone looking for a modern arcade tank game, has moved into the “Early Access” phase. A disclaimer at the top of Armored Warfare's news post reassures people that they are entering into a work-in-progress game, and as such, nothing should be taken as a final product as it currently stands. At the very least, nothing is restricted by a non-disclosure agreement, so if you have access, feel free to share.
How can you worm your way into Early Access? Three ways, the first of which by way of winning a key through various social media contests, the next by purchasing a Founder's Pack(http://aw.my.com/us/founders-packs), which can run you 14.99 USD, 29.99 USD, or 69.99 USD, or by being randomly selected for access. Those with early access will get the chance to check out 38 vehicles, four maps, two tank “dealers,” a commander/crew system, the clan & platoon system, and some achievements.
The test will run from May 27th to June 3rd, and there are specific times that the servers will be turned on for different regions. They are as follows:
- EU Server:
- 6pm – 9pm CEST on weekdays
- 5pm – 10pm CEST on weekends
- NA Server:
- 8pm – 11pm ET on weekdays
- 7pm – midnight ET on weekends
I'm not quite sure how I personally feel about paying for such a small window of access, and while I'm sure that there are more beta periods to come, even the vehicles in the ~70 USD Founder's Pack don't stay exclusive forever. Conceivably, this is also because I have a habit of spending little money on free-to-play games, but regardless, I'll be keeping my eye on Armored Warfare.
