What content will be included in the beta/Will we be able to play the full game?
Yes, the beta will feature all content planned for the full release. However, this is still a beta, so some things may appear a bit unpolished and should still be considered a work in progress.

How can I play the beta?
You will receive instant access to the beta simply by pre-purchasing the game on the official Kalypso Store.
The Praetorians – HD Remaster Beta will appear as a separate game in your Steam library.
This means, after purchasing/redeeming your Steam key, you will have two items added:

  • Praetorians – HD Remaster (will be available upon release in 24th January 2020)
  • Praetorians – HD Remaster Beta (your mission begins here, General!)

Will the beta be extended with additional content up until release?
As the beta features the entirety of the content planned for the full release, there will be no new features or additional content added. However, there will be updates to fix bugs, tweak gameplay, and make things shine.
For more details and updates, we recommend keeping an eye on our official channels.

Will there be constant updates/fixes and/or server maintenance?
We are planning to update the beta frequently.
We do not have servers that require maintenance. This means there will be no downtime.
So that we can be as flexible as possible and adapt to feedback and bug reports more effectively, we have avoided sticking to any fixed schedule.
Please be aware that, when updating to a new version of the beta, some save games might lose compatibility.

Which operating systems does the beta support?
Windows-PC only.

How long will the Praetorians – HD Remaster Beta run?
The beta will be active from 13th December up until the full release of the game on January 24th 2020.

Is it possible to share screenshots or videos?
Yes! There is no NDA on streaming or sharing any content from the beta.

What are the system requirements to play the beta?
You need at least:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or higher
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-3220 (Dual-core with at least 3,3 Ghz)
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: 2GB dedicated VRam, e.g. Nvidia GeForce GT640
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 3 GB available space

As we are still doing hardware testing until full release, those might change.

Can we transfer our progress from the beta to the full game when it releases?
We are trying our best to make this possible. However, we cannot guarantee beta save games to be compatible with the full game upon its release. To avoid potential disappointment, it would be best to assume all beta save games to only be compatible with the beta.

Which languages will be supported in the Praetorians – HD Remaster Beta?
The beta will be available in English and German only. However, the full release will offer more languages and we may add more over the course of the beta.
