Winter Mayhem will be five days of medieval combat across two stages - an open weekend during which ANYONE can take part followed by a three-day closed stage for our pre-order pack owners and prior siege testers. We’ll also be opening a second (NA) server introducing new content (2 new maps and 5 new units), increasing the level cap and awarding Silver coins and Honor points for new characters to spend.

As before the client will be available to download via the Game Center launcher prior to the Winter Mayhem servers coming online, with access again limited to specific time slots.

Please enjoy the new video and be sure to join us for the open weekend, and, if you haven’t already done so, make sure you pre-order to stay with us until December 19 and long into the CBT season planned for early next year!

That’s two days in which to score ten kills and two map wins.

Known issues

  • New players connecting through Steam are required to “sign up” for beta via the launcher to acquire a temporary account. This process could take up to 5 minutes and will require the launcher to be restarted. (The “Sign up” button in the Game Center launcher will change to “Play”, at which point the game files can be downloaded.)
  • There is an unfortunate crash issue that some users with AMD processors experienced during previous Siege Tests. Due to the same client being used this issue persists, but will be eliminated in time for the closed beta test phase.
