PC gamers can sign up to participate in the closed beta test of Dontnod Eleven’s ‘Battlecrew Space Pirates’. The game takes place in an original and iconic Space Pirates universe, where players can control charismatic heroes, each having their own unique characteristics and skills.
Beginning Thursday, January 19th at 11: 00 am (EST) and running through Sunday, January 22 at 11:00 am (EST), Dontnod Eleven is hosting a test for players in North America and Western Europe. The team will work to implement changes based on consumer input ahead of the Early Access launch at the end of January 2017.
The biggest new feature being introduced during the closed beta is the ability to create squads.
They will also be able to partake in the 2 vs 2 Team Deathmatch mode which will be available exclusively during the closed beta. Once the game arrives in Steam Early Access, Team Deathmatch won’t be available until it’s added later on as a free update.
During the Early Access phase, which is planned to start at the end of January, additional content such as news maps and skins will be added through different mechanics such as crowd unlocking, community challenges, time limited events, updates, and community polls. These updates will be implemented, while the team continues to improve the game leading up to its full release.
