Lead the Stormcast Eternals and Orruk Kruleboyz
Frontier Developments has released details regarding the upcoming Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin beta. The open beta event for the real-time strategy game will be available to everyone on July 7-10.
Those looking to join in the fun are encouraged to register their interest for the beta to ensure they get the proper details when they drop.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin open beta details
According to the beta page, this open beta has two main objectives.
The first is to test the stability and network performance of the game. The other objective is to test the game’s multiplayer feedback on the balance of the two factions in the beta. These include the superhuman near-immortal Stormcast Eternals, and the swamp-dwelling Orruk Kruleboyz. Frontier Developments will be looking for feedback on overall economy and gameplay balance of the two factions.
The team hopes this beta period can also serve as a network test. If a large number of players participate, the servers can be stress tested to identify potential bottlenecks or other issues to ensure a smooth and stable network come launch.
How to access the open beta
The first open beta will run from July 8th at 3AM PST through July 10th at 3:59PM PST. A second open beta event is on the way with more details coming this summer.
