Sweet Bandits and Tripwire have announced a Deceive Inc closed alpha. The sneaky multiplayer spy sim will be available to a select group of participants from the end of this week, and will give you a few days to get to grips with its controls and its world if you're selected to take part.

Per a press release, the Deceive Inc closed alpha will begin this Friday, November 11th at 2pm Eastern, and will run until Sunday, November 13th at 8pm Eastern. The closed alpha will only be available on PC platforms, so if you were hoping to try Deceive Inc out on consoles, you're out of luck, unfortunately.

If you want to join the Deceive Inc closed alpha, you'll need to keep an eye on "partnered giveaways" over at Alienware Arena, SteelSeries, and MMOBomb. Sweet Bandits also say you should keep an eye on their socials, in particular Twitter and Facebook, to be in with a chance of grabbing additional codes or getting extra news about the game.

As well as the closed alpha announcement, Tripwire Presents also released a fun new dev diary that introduces the members of the dev team. The video depicts Sweet Bandits as a close-knit unit with plenty of fun dynamics between them, so give it a look if you're interested in a behind-the-scenes glance at their process. We found them to be rather agreeable when we chatted to them, so hopefully you will as well.

Deceive Inc is an upcoming multiplayer FPS based on subterfuge and spycraft. If you can imagine an entire game where you play as the Spy from Team Fortress 2, you're not a million miles off. You'll need to disguise yourself, use a variety of gadgets and tools, and take down your competition in order to secure your objective and emerge victorious.

Right now, Deceive Inc doesn't have a release date, but given that a closed alpha is coming this week, hopefully we're not too far off an announcement on that front. When it launches, it'll be on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
