Commanders,

Jason travelled with his Argonauts 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 we reach the next exciting stage in our own journey with Total War: ARENA, as we prepare to enter the first Closed Beta Test!

·The first Closed Beta Test will begin on Friday 1st September at 18:00 (UTC), Further information about in-game activities during this session and the exact duration of the CBT will be provided at a later date.

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!

We want everyone to experience this new stage of the journey together, so veterans and newcomers alike will be starting on a level battlefield at the start of the Closed Beta Test. There’s plenty of new content and features to discover in the latest build of Total War: ARENA, which we’ll be exploring in greater detail with developer Q&As, spotlights, and live streams from gamescom 2017 this week!

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, and we wholeheartedly encourage you to do so!

You can stay up to date on Total War: ARENA news from gamescom 2017 and beyond by liking our Facebook page, following us on Twitter, or checking out our Instagram! You can also head over to our official forum to talk tactics with your fellow commanders!

See you on the battlefield!

Most important question: will you wipe again at the end of this?

we really need a honest and reliable answer on this.

In a big grind-game as Arena i indeed need to know if we will get wiped again. This is not Playerunknownbattlegrounds where a wipe only mean stats but the game itself can be played without disadvantages, a wipe in Arena means you have to spend hours and hours again to play the units you want to play, and as i already spend amazing hours in the steam version and some alpha sessions who were wiped against all earlier promises, i indeed want to know if you are wasting my time with this or not. If it gets wiped again, have fun playing it everyone, cya in 2025 when the game gets released. I actually heard rumours it would be a duo release with HL3 on a 'TBA' date.

I think CA/WG owe to us testers to give us an honest answer about this CBT.

 

Im excited as everyone about the announcement as its been a long time coming, but as numerous people above have asked "We would like an official response please"

Xeir, would help a lot if you actually try to read the several posts in this thread and then understand the sarcasm of that post... Lol Xeir...Anyway, you are a real good Praetorian Xeir, without thinking yourself you defend your masters whatever they say or do. You can be proud of yourself :)

Clearly there will be a wipe.

Because it's closed beta and it lasts 8 weeks.

I expect minimum 1-2 wipes. 

One between closed and open beta.

And a second between open beta and release.

 

Just play the game for what it is and have fun.

 

Closed Beta here we come!

...for a small force is but booty for one more powerful."

And you are great alpha tester, you reported so many bugs, and helped fix so many things in game to be great for us all. You can be proud of yourself and name of your grup.

 

Changing lvl of conversation.

 

You are here like 2 years, and you should notice that if im not in mood and see someone who first write without searching im sometimes ( pretty often), creating that type of "answers"

if he would create question in correct way i would love to  join discussion and talk about this topic even it that would mean don't agree with Wargaming or creative-assembly move, like often i was doing in past 2 years

Because im not they employee, and my opinions are only my own.

 

But if you knowing this all you are still spun toward me, then i can't do nothing about it because this is irrational and have not sense.
