    • Welcome, Soldiers! We’ve been hard at work and heads down over the past few weeks, making good progress on some very cool and exciting things for Beyond the Wire. As some may know, our Community Manager BLITZ has recently taken some well deserved time off and will be back with us soon. In the meantime, we wanted to thank everyone for their patience, and share an update with you all regarding our development progress. Drumroll please… We’re very excited to announce that the second Closed Alpha phase will start later this month! We greatly appreciate those who not only participated in the first Alpha wave, but also took the time to fill out the feedback forms. This feedback has been extremely helpful in identifying which parts of the game are the most enjoyable so far, as well as which gameplay elements require additional iteration. We’ve spent the past 1.5 months working to both address feedback we’ve received and add polish. We’re incredibly excited to show Alpha players what new features and new content has been added, as well as explain fixes and tweaks that have been made to the Alpha version of BTW. How Do I Get Access To The Closed Alpha? If you were part of the previous Beyond The Wire Closed Alpha, you don’t have to do anything additional to get access to it once it goes live again. You’re already in! If you signed up for the Closed Alpha but haven’t received a successful invite yet, please keep an eye on your email inbox - we will be inviting an additional wave of testers in the next few days! We’re looking forward to getting even more of you into the game. If you didn’t have a chance to sign up for the Closed Alpha in the first wave, not to worry! Sign-ups are now OPEN again! While we will still be prioritizing those that signed up in the initial wave, we wanted to give new folks a chance at securing a spot as well. We love that so many people are on the hype train with us!     CLOSED ALPHA SIGN UP   What’s Next for the Community? We will be hosting additional livestreams in the coming weeks to showcase parts of the game you all have been excited to learn about. We also have more devblogs in the works that go into detail about gameplay and technical aspects that are unique to Beyond The Wire. In the meantime, please make sure to wishlist Beyond The Wire on Steam, if you haven’t already. This helps us tremendously, as it grants us additional exposure on Steam. You can add us to your Wishlist here. Thank you! Now, we couldn’t let you head into the weekend without some eye-candy, which is why we want to share with you a work-in-progress version of the Passchendaele minimap. Let us know on Discord if you’ve spotted something interesting!   Click to view high-resolution version Until next time, and stay posted Soldiers!
    • Hey mate, welcome! Beyond the Wire will require payment to access the game, no price point has been made public yet, as that is still TBD and more information on pricing will come closer to early access release. There is always the potential for Steam free weekends, which could be a possibility RSI might consider sometime post early access release, guess we'll have to wait and see. In saying this, wave 2 of alpha playtesting is coming up sometime this month, so keep an eye out on here and in discord, for the announcement. 
    • I'm a massive WW1 geek and looking forward to playing this! Hoping to finally have a complete WW1 PC experience I can rope my friends and discord into. BFone is nice but not quite historically accurate enough and slowly losing player base and Verdun is fun to a point but becomes a heavy sniper war on some maps and lacks depth as there aren't a lot of explosion, gas attacks, arty or large scale engagements as player numbers are limited.  Verdun has suffered due to pricing and being very linear and BFones superseeded by newer games. How are you devs going to price the game and keep the player base engaged? Have you thought about a free2play model thats limited to get people through the door and then allow them to play before buying the game. I think a lot of games like this would benefit from giving the players a taster. It's hard to commited £20-£30 to a game in a market so full. You're competing in a market that's full of massive shooters... Battlefield, Call of Duty, and many other WW2 games. This game needs something to pull in some of those punters and many people don't know much about the WW1 era. I am loving the screenshots and the visual look really authentic and atmospheric.   America joined the war in 1917 which makes their story more limited than say a game about England, France and Germany. Really looking forward to seeing how you approach this whilst keeping things realistic and accurate. 
    • As a WW1 geek I'd say the following:   Beneath Hill 60 - True story about Aussie miners in WW1 one of the more famous known stories from the war era. Good to mixed reviews lots of action and a good biographical account of Captain Oliver Woodward. The miners story is quite unique these guys weren't often in the face of the enemy but suffered loses and had to deal with life below the ground trying to outsmart enemy miners. WW1 mining is such a unique tactic that was deployed for obvious reasons as direct engagements caused a lot of loses. The Lost Battalion - True story about American troops that were surrounded due to mix up in command orders. Good reviews fairly accurate account of what happened with lots of real character biography here. It's a good true story some action as well. It's not your standard trench warfare story. 1917 - Big fictional film out recently that everyone knows about, as you'd expect as a big Hollywood thing lots of explosions and effects but filmed in a unique way gives a nice view of how WW1 looked and some very authentic visuals. Story follows the path of a young solider as he travels through battlezones and towns to deliver important orders. I work with someone who dates one of the cameramen and it was shot in a very different way to a lot of films you follow the main actor really closely and its cool to know that the whole film was laid out as almost one long obstacle course meaning 95% of the film set was setup all in one go. No idea if this was a true story or not I doubt it. Passchendaele - Loosely based on true events and is a tribute film to main actors grandfather based on WW1 stories. This one has real mixed reviews but I really like it though it is fictional! Sad story/love story but it shows the emotional and personal side of WW1 as one of the Canadian characters has a German father. Mixed reviews but the battlefield scene near the middle and end of the film is very authentic. You kind of forget about people have dual nationality and families were forced to choose loyalty. Journey's End - One the more famous stories based on a theatre play/book deals more with relationships and personal stories than the war so if you're looking for combat and explosions this might not be for you. This hasn't got much action but good reviews.   Testament of Youth and War Horse are good WW1 era films but they don't really deal with WW1 as the main topic but are stories set in that era effected by the conflict. War Horse does have some great looking battlefields and some cool WW1 scenes... so I guess it's got quite a bit of WW1.
