Eugen Systems announced that the first phase of the Steel Division 2 single/multiplayer beta on Steam is coming soon. Phase 1 begins on March 27th for a 48-hour period and is open to anyone who pre-ordered Steel Division 2 on Steam, Gamesplanet, or The Humble Store. Testers will receive an advanced look at the wealth of game modes, including the Breakthrough mode. On Breakthrough, players defend a map against an attacking force and make a great deal of use of their new Defense Structure feature.
Beta testers can also look forward to checking out Conquest Mode, an objective-based mode that charges players with pushing the frontline of battle forward by capturing objectives across the map. Two divisions will be available to choose from for phase 1, starting with the German 5. Panzerdivision and 2nd Guards Tank Corps – with more to come in future phases. There will also be further 48-hour mulitplayer beta phases each week to get ready for Steel Division 2’s release, which is now slated for May 2nd, 2019.
“We’re excited for Steel Division players to finally experience what we’ve been working so hard on behind closed doors when the Steam beta launches,” said Pierre-Yves Navetat, Marketing and Communication Manager at Eugen Systems. “This beta will allow us time to incorporate player feedback and ensure players the best launch day experience with Steel Division 2.”
