Offworld Industries is excited to announce the release date for their massive 50 versus 50 World War I FPS title, Beyond the Wire. On August 31, 2022, Beyond the Wire will launch out of Early Access on Steam with a new Player Customization system allowing players to earn clothing, non-combat gear, and decorations fitting the era of the game.
New flamethrowers, Canadian autocar vehicles, environmental effects, dynamic environmental damage, and revised maps will be added at launch. As development progresses beyond launch, more customization options and faction options are planned to be included in future updates.
The team is releasing an Early Access update today testing new content ahead of release. Details can be found here.
This announcement follows on a sizable May Early Access update deploying the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) to assist Britain with war efforts. Tanks, including the British Mk. IV, French Renault FT, and German A7V made their appearance in Beyond the Wire for the first time alongside an armoury full of new weapons.
Beyond the Wire and its development team, Redstone Interactive, was acquired earlier this year by Squad developers Offworld Industries, as the two teams come together to share technology and resources to improve both titles. Beyond the Wire is currently available for PC on Steam in English, French, German, and Simplified Chinese.
