After every OpenDev so far, we have seen comments from many players asking us to let them keep playing, or at least host another OpenDev, and Victor was no exception. In fact, after the recent glimpse of the Industrial era in articles and videos, the cries may have been louder than ever before. Luckily, there’s a Closed Beta, and it’s bigger than any OpenDev before!




From June 13th at 14:30 PT / 23:30 CEST to June 21st at 14:30 PT / 23:30 CEST, play up to 200 turns of Humankind (PC and English language only), and for the first time ever try the industrial era and the new opportunities it brings. Exploit coal and oil to push your economy to new heights of productivity. Build railways to cheaply and quickly move goods and troops. Fight the biggest battles yet, support them with long range artillery bombardment, and take to the skies to keep an eye on your enemies! And of course, be sure to fill out the survey and let us know what you think.



How do you get your hands on the Closed Beta?


    • If you have played the Victor OpenDev, the Closed Beta should already be in your Steam library.

    • If you have pre-purchased on Steam, go to your profile page to link your Steam account, then go to your rewards page and redeem the Closed Beta access at the top.

    • If you have pre-purchased on Epic Games Store, the Closed Beta should be in your library

    • You can also earn access through Twitch-drops on participating channels, but make sure your Games2Gether account is linked to both Steam and Twitch (check your account settings to be sure)

    • If you are having any problems, please check the troubleshooting thread first.


Speaking of Twitch: Drops for the special streamer avatars are back as well, so you will have another chance to unlock them before release (though there will still be chances after release, and these avatars will be usable in the release version of the game as well). This time around, some of these avatars will even already have their own voice acting, so if you are a fan of any of these streamers, be sure to give playing against their avatar a try. They're even joined by a new face, Frankie Ward, cohost of the PC Gaming Show!



If you have any trouble getting access to the Closed Beta, please check the Troubleshooting thread, and while we are as eager to hear your feedback as you are to give it, please take a moment to read the Welcome Thread first.



Have fun!

Nice!  I'm looking forward to playing the beta over the next few days when I can block off some time and give it my full attention.


In other news, I see you've added a new streamer drop...  Oh joy...

WHat about us MAC users on steam?

Yeah I know there are lots of game logic and balance things to work through but I'd like to try the Mac implementation before launch to ensure it works on my hardware (Mac mini and AKiTiO NODE with RX580).

Grüße gehen raus an das Team von Amplitude, ich freue mich teil dieser Community sein zu können, wo Spieler und Entwickler gemeinsam Spiele entwickeln und erleben können.

ich hatte mit den OpenDev´s schon viel spaß,  da kann die Closed Beta nur noch besser werden.

Why did you rename it to "closed beta" in the last moment?
