FALL OF THE SAMURAI CLOSED BETA: Join up now!

Dear forumites,

How would you like to be a part of our closed multiplayer beta for Fall of the Samurai?

You’ll get the opportunity to try out brand new content way ahead of everyone else – and what’s more, we’re looking for lots of people to get involved!

If you apply to join the programme right now, we’ll be letting in early applicants before December 23rd. Then, in the new year, we’ll be rolling out keys to everyone else who’s applied to be a part of the beta.

Please note that to join the programme, you’ll have to agree not to talk about the contents of the beta with anyone. The non-disclosure agreement you have to sign also prevents you from taking screenshots or videos from the content you’ll be playing.

What’s more, the agreement is legally binding – so make sure you’re comfortable with this before signing up. There’s a checkbox on the form that you need to tick in order to acknowledge this.

We'd also love to hear your feedback on the beta - so head on over to the new subsection of the forum we've created for feeback in the members' only section.

To sign up, just hit this link below:


JOIN THE BETA


The beta is still a project very much in development, and for that reason it won't be complete. There are a few known issues that we'd like you to know about that won't be the case in the final version of the game, which is due for release in March 2012.
Existing known issues:

Some issues with avatar traits
Some issues with unit cards
Some retainer cost issues
Known UI bugs with avatar tutorial
Some unit banners don't display correctly in battle
Known clan token issues
XP is currently set to 4x
Only FotS units currently available for selection


If you do enjoy the beta, please consider picking up a copy of the game when it becomes available for pre-purchase on Steam. It's your invaluable support that helps up keep making Total War games, and keep making them better than ever.

Merry Christmas. We'll see you on the battlefield.

-The Creative Assembly

PS. Please note it might be a few hours, days or even weeks before you get your code. We'll be handing them out in batches to ensure stability. We'll try to give priority to those who sign up first.

    I think u just have to wait until they decide to give u a code or not. It says it can take up to weeks to get the code so dont expect the code as soon as you signed up :P

    Excellent idea. A constructive way to participate. I'm expecting to see some (hyper)active forumites enlisting...

    As the OP said:

    So now you lean back and relax, or better yet delve deep into the forums and try not to get too frightened by the dwellers ;). Welcome to the forums.

    Ah, thx, didn't notice that was a link. I should not make a habit of skipping breakfast, and coffee in particular in the morning.

    Off work today, so, out of the usual habits.

    You'll get a code via email anywhere between now and March. If you sign up early you stand a better chance of getting your key sooner.

    I buy, ,, Fall of the Samurai " in March I hope that I will play before the Napoleon Total War with missing units from pre-order (Grand Battery, HMS Elephant, Towarczys, the Royal Scots Greys) and ,,Heroes of Napoleonic Wars," with collector's edition when those previously unissued units will be released on Steam. ;)

    Barnaleon,

    If you're going to attempt to hijack a thread about a beta on an upcoming project, at least do it in a complete and grammatically functional sentence. :p

    Great to see that the CA is getting help from the community. Then not as many will whine about balancing when the game comes out :p Hope I'll get my code soon!

    easytarget,

    Sorry but my English is at a low level and I use the online translator. I know that I make many mistakes. And he writes about it in this thread because many people enter here and also people from the CA, which wants to be interested in a matter of missing troops to Napoleon Total War. :p
