The Myth of Empires closed beta is almost upon us. Developer Angela Game has announced the dates for the upcoming multiplayer battler's beta this October, and you can register for a chance to join in right now.
When is the Myth of Empires closed beta?
The global closed beta for Myth of Empires will begin on October 2nd. It'll run all the way through to October 10th, giving you eight days in total to experience the beta stage of the multiplayer sandbox war-'em-up. If you haven't heard of this game before, imagine a sort of Eastern take on Mount and Blade. You'll be able to recruit followers and soldiers into your empire, collect resources to build up your stronghold, and sally forth into the field of battle with your retinue by your side. Check out the official closed beta trailer below for a look at what Myth of Empires will offer this October.
If you took part in the Myth of Empires alpha, you'll notice plenty more content in the beta (should you manage to get in, of course). There are new siege battles across counties, fortresses, and entire provinces. New environments have been added; you can now do battle across snowy mountains, caves, and swamps, among other locations. Crafting has been expanded, and more animals will populate Myth of Empires' impressively sized sandbox. Lastly, across Asia, Europe, and North America, both PvP and PvE servers will be available for beta testing. All of this is in addition to what was already in the alpha; building structures, recruiting NPCs and forming guilds with your friends, and, of course, engaging in glorious combat with your enemies.
How do you sign up for the Myth of Empires closed beta?
Signing up for the closed beta couldn't be simpler. All you need to do is head over to the Myth of Empires Steam page and scroll down to an option marked "Join the Myth of Empires Playtest". Click Request Access, and you'll be asked if you want to be notified when the developer is ready for more participants. Simply confirm that you do, and voila, you're on the waiting list. We told you it couldn't be simpler.
A full Myth of Empires release date is still TBA, unfortunately, so we don't know when we're getting the full version of the game yet. In the meantime, do be sure to sign up for a chance to enter the closed beta, and wishlist Myth of Empires on Steam if it looks like your jam. We can't wait until people get their hands on this one; maybe enterprising modders will think to overhaul Myth of Empires with Westeros or Wheel of Time's world, just as they have for Mount and Blade. Watch this space for more news on Myth of Empires.
