The second Century: Age of Ashes closed beta will launch on Steam this Friday. Playwing announced today that all users who requested access via the Steam page can play the second closed beta on March 12. The new beta will include improvements based on player feedback. Plus, there’s new content to explore, including additional game modes.
According to Steam, Century: Age of Ashes is a “free-to-play multiplayer dragon battle game.” Players can take control of different classes and dragons and compete against friends in battles. The game’s first closed beta has already introduced three game modes. Players can go on 6v6 killing sprees in Carnage, or join Survival mode to be the last team standing. In Gates of Fire, teams battle it out for possession of a flag.
Century: Age of Ashes‘ second closed beta will run until March 21. Any progress made will carry over to the game’s Early Access release in April. Soon after the second closed beta’s launch, Playwing will share the official Early Access release date.
In celebration of the nearing Early Access release, Playwing unveiled a new Century: Age of Ashes trailer. The video showcases the three classes that will be available in Early Access, as well as the original three game modes and maps. Check out the full trailer below.
Century: Age of Ashes adds three new game modes
The second closed beta will introduce new modes for even more variety. Players can start out in a Rookie mode; however, this will only be accessible until Level 10. After that, the mode will be replaced by a 3v3 Skirmish mode. The matchmaking system has been tweaked to ensure that players are the same level when entering a round. Finally, a Free Flight mode allows players to get familiar with controls while fighting an enemy bot.
In addition to these new modes, Playwing made some improvements to Gates of Fire and user experiences. The second Century: Age of Ashes closed beta will include access to the shop, where players can spend in-game currency.
