Frontier Developments say the beta will give you the chance to immerse yourself in a fiercely competitive environment, rendered in spectacular visuals, where control of the map is the primary objective. By summoning fresh troops, amassing resources, capturing Victory Points, and executing strategic ambushes, you can outwit your opponent in a tantalising game of wits.

The Open Beta lets you test your mettle in 1v1 cross-platform multiplayer matches. You’ll have the chance to command the formidable Stormcast Eternals or the fiercely cunning Orruk Kruleboyz, two complete factions available for this early taste of the game. Not feeling competitive? The Open Beta also gives the option to play against an AI bot for a less stressful skirmish.

The introduction of the DirectStep™ control scheme allows for swift movement orders, instant cycling between squads, and a more fluid command of the battlefield using a controller. Yet, fans of the traditional mouse and keyboard RTS controls need not worry, as they are also supported on both PC and console. For those looking for a more in-depth understanding of the game mechanics, detailed guides on how to play Realms of Ruin are readily available on the official Open Beta page.

Experience the unparalleled detail and dedication that Frontier Developments have poured into each unit. From the Stormcast Eternals’ brutal Annihilators and winged Prosecutors to the Orruk Kruleboyz’ burly Marshcrawla Sloggoth and mobs of Hobgrot Slittaz, each unit on the battlefield exudes authenticity, drawing substantial inspiration from their tabletop counterparts.

Keep in mind, this Open Beta is not just for fun; it’s crucial for testing the game’s servers and assisting developers with faction balancing. The current Open Beta will conclude on the 10th of July at 23:59 BST. A second Open Beta is set for later this summer, with further details due to be announced shortly.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin is coming soon to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S *, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store *.

Note for our German PlayStation users: You will need a PS Plus subscription to participate in the Open Beta.
