Obsidian Entertainment and My.com announced today that the second Early Access test for Armored Warfare will open on June 10th and will last until June 24th.

Armored Warfare is a massively multiplayer online tank combat game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by My.com. It features team-based gameplay with cooperative missions and a wide range of modern vehicles to fight with.

In celebration of the second Early Access testing news, a brand new trailer of the Roughneck map has been released which details the map players will get a chance to play on in the second test:


The Roughneck Map

The cold plains of Russia await you in the new Armored Warfare map "Roughneck." The peaceful town of Nadym was invaded by mercenaries trying to occupy the local refinery and your team must not let such a major source of revenue in the region fall into enemy hands.

The green zone represents the refinery - because it was damaged during the fighting, the rubble provides excellent cover for you to fight the enemy at close range. This route is recommended for heavier and slower vehicles.

The red zones represent primary access between yours and the enemy's parts of the map. They form chokepoints that are controlled by the team occupying the refinery or the pumping station.

The blue zone represents the refinery pumping station. Enemies in cover can easily control large areas of the map and will be very difficult to dislodge, approach with caution.
