Armored Warfare rolls into open beta on October 8

The upcoming free-to-play tank game from Obsidian Entertainment is ready to reach a wider audience in October, with the game's open beta set to begin.


It's been almost a full year and a half since Obsidian Entertainment and publisher announced their entry into the free-to-play tank-busting world, but Armored Warfare continues to inch closer to release. And now, the free-to-play multiplayer game is about to enter its open beta stage.

The open beta will debut over 60 different tank varieties across several categories. Players will be able to roll those tanks onto nine PvP maps, which include environments like desert refineries, a forest airbase, a tropical island, and a snowy tundra. Players can also jump into online co-op to take on 25 different PvE maps, which will also provide the same types of progression rewards as PvP.

Look for content updates to hit the open beta as it goes on. The Armored Warfare open beta is set to kick off on October 8. As for those that have purchased a Founder's Pack through the Armored Warfare website, they'll get open beta access early. Their open beta will kick off this Thursday, October 1.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Not sure how I feel about this. I love all of Obsidian's games, but a tank game from them seems really strange!

      I get wanting to branch out, though...!

        I also get the free-to-play route. If they can make a quality tank game that generates revenue, it'll mean money they can put into other projects.
