If you’ve been itching to try out Armored Warfare but haven’t wanted to shell out for an early access pack, your wait is almost over! In just a few days, you’ll be able to download and play Armored Warfare totally for free, and all your progress will be saved going into launch!

The Head Start period runs from Oct. 1 to Oct. 7 and will be available to players who purchased a Founder’s Pack. From Oct. 8 onward, anyone can get into the game, even if they haven’t purchased a Founder’s Pack. More than 60 vehicles will be available for purchase and destruction across nine PvP maps. Players can also check out the 25 PvE maps, as well as get a head start on building up their bases, which offer their own sets of rewards and other perks.

You can get full details on the Armored Warfare closed beta here.

    No its more like its new and hasn’t found a real footing and it can change over a year or more. If you played any games that where in their beta before buying them you would also complain about them having bugs and crap even though its in beta. Ya maybe after a few years and nothing changes maybe then criticism is due.

      Criticizing the game and it’s bugs is necessary ESPECIALLY when it’s in beta. Without feedback and criticism, the devs would not be fully aware of problems that exist within their game. That’s the whole point of a beta. (That was in response to your asinine remark about bugs. My intent is to state my opinion. If I want to give constructive feedback, I’ll email the devs.)
      Everything said here is in reference to the current state of the game, which should go without saying. We all are aware that it can change to some extent in the future, Captain Obvious. Opinions can change with the game.
      And no, I didn’t buy the founders pack. I don’t need to when Obsidian has detailed the game in-depth and there are videos all over YouTube. I’ve watch enough to see that the game is bland and uninteresting, much like the games it clearly draws inspiration from. If Obsidian is planning to outright remove all forms of vertical progression and add a new mode of play that is more fast-paced and arcadey, I’d be interested in playing it. If not, my opinion remains unchanged.

      I’d be interested in this it were more of a vehicle-based arena shooter instead a World of Turds reskin.

      you people are the very example as to why founder packs are a stupid idea. You can not base anything a game puts out on a closed beta that just makes you look stupid. There has been no beta as of yet that has been perfect.

        “It’s a beta therefore it’s above criticism herp derp derp”
