The event is scheduled to commence on Thursday, May 25th, and conclude at midnight on Monday, May 29th. The test will be exclusively available on Steam.

The purpose of the Technical Test is to gather feedback from the gaming community and collaborate with Gun Interactive and Sumo Nottingham to fine-tune the game before its official launch on August 18th. The test aims to evaluate the game’s technical performance and capabilities, focusing on stress testing and backend services, rather than providing a preview of the finished product.
