“This is our first chance to show the game to a larger audience, and we invite everyone to join up and help shape what Armored Warfare becomes.” said Feargus Urquhart, Founder and CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. “We have been thrilled with the feedback we've been getting from our testers and the community at large, and now it's time to move to the next phase. We have spent countless hours of development time to craft what, we hope, will be the ultimate experience for tank and armored vehicle enthusiasts. With your help we can make that a reality.

The first Early Access Test will feature PvP battles across four maps with uniquely different climate zones and settings: from port area in desert sands to a snow-covered town. Players will be able to test 38modern vehicles from six tiers covering all five types of vehicle classes in the game, including: main battle tanks, AFV’s, light tanks, tank destroyers and artillery.
