Total War: Arena Going Into Closed Beta on September 1
Jason and his Argonauts travelled over land and sea, through perils and horrors untold, to retrieve the magical Golden Fleece and reclaim his kingdom. Hercules performed twelve hellish labours for twelve years as atonement for the death of his family. And so Total War: ARENA prepares to enter the first Closed Beta Test!
The first Closed Beta Test will begin on Friday 1st September at 18:00 (UTC), and will remain active for 8 weeks.
This is the largest session Total War: ARENA has carried out to date, and offers the greatest freedom in experiencing the game than any session before it. Step into the arena and unleash some fury as the servers remain active 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This crucial evolution was announced at gamescom 2017, where the vengeful Barbarian Commander Boudica has been wooing the Cologne crowds with her brand new unit, the Wardogs!
As a reminder of some more good news, the non-disclosure agreement, which was in place for all previous Alpha sessions leading up to Alpha 10, has been lifted. You are now completely free to stream and share images and video of your experiences in Total War: ARENA with the wider world.
