If you’ve been eager to be among the first to play Conqueror's Blade with others from around the world, the wait is finally over. The Conqueror’s Blade Siege Test, a preliminary event that aims to showcase and stress the game’s focal PvP mode, will soon be underway. Depending on where you are in the western world, from today and until October 27 these are the times when the you need to be ready to join the fray:
1st Window (RU + EU)*
- Moscow: 18:00 - 22:59
- EU: 17:00 - 21:59
- NA East: 11:00 - 15:59

Those with pre-orders or who have activated invite codes can download the Conqueror’s Blade Siege Test (20 GB). Once the files are installed you can create a character, pick a class and join fights across the Siege of Augolia map.
Press ‘J’ once you appear in-game to search for a battle to join. You’ll start either as an attacker outside the city walls, or as a defender within them. Before you charge the enemy, however, look around for any siege weapons you can use to thin their numbers down. Ideally, too, you’ll want to use chat and voice comms to try and coordinate efforts with your allies. When you do make contact with the foe, make use of the full range of your abilities and remember that, as a General, you’ll be the focus of any enemy attack. Use your troops as protection and try not to get too far ahead of them lest you become isolated. You’re a General after all, not a fantasy superhero.
Be aware of course that the Siege Test is only a small portion of Conqueror’s Blade, which in itself is likely to change between now and when the game goes fully live at the end of the year. If during the Siege Test you do experience undue effects with regards to gameplay, accessibility or performance, please let us know and keep an eye on our various social channels - Discord especially - for any service updates over the weekend.
Even though the Siege Test is in session, it’s not too late to secure a place. Pre-order packs are still available, as part of which you’ll gain immediate access to the weekend fun and to the subsequent Close Beta Test phase - as well as receiving a headstart when the game goes live (when you can show off your exclusive armour)! For this Siege Test however, time is short. Remember that Saturday is when your final assaults and last stands will have to be made!
