It’s Total War: Arena‘s second open week, which means that anyone with a Wargaming account can play the game right now! The game is currently undergoing closed beta testing, but until February 12th, gamers will be able to get a sneak peek at the upcoming free-to-play game.
Total War: Arena
Total War: Arena is a free-to-play, team-based strategy game, putting players in the middle of epic-scale realtime battles. Its 10v10 battles attempt to appeal to more strategic gamers that enjoy the gameplay style of the Total War series. Players will control three units of warriors, led by an iconic commander from history, each with their own battle style. As you level up commanders and units to open up more specialist skills, weaponry, armour and abilities, your team’s strategies, combat tactics and teamwork will decide who is victorious.
Throughout this open week of the closed beta, players will be able to participate in a variety of mission types that will ship with the final game. Wargaming has broken down the details of what these missions are like:
- Victory is Inevitable: Runs from February 9th to February 12th.
- Party Play: Runs from February 4th to February 9th.
- First Victory on a Commander: Runs the entirety of the open week.
