Change log for 2.12.1 This here is a playtest of 2.12.1. Experience the new Empires today! We are not testing any specific thing here, just a general game play test to see if there's nothing wrong with scripts and any code changes/bug fixes work correctly. The more we get to test the better the release will be. Where and when, Click me for your local time. On March 11th 1900 GMT / 2000 CET / 1400 EST / 1100 PST. Click me for your local time. The server will be hosted by Nubs, so expect to see a Beta in the name for the correct one. How this works You have to opt into the empires beta to join in. In your Steam library, right-click Empires and click Properties. Click the Betas tab and choose Beta - Empires Beta Test. Close the properties window. Steam will now update Empires to the beta version. Click Play to launch Empires beta. Click here for more info. Just remember to opt out of beta when play test is over, otherwise you'll have conflicts joining the public server. Or more importantly, you couldn't even see the Nubs on the server list. Maps Maps will be just a few stock ones. I'm thinking a quick round on eastborough to hear the new infantry sound changes then a round on either coast or palmbay, depending on player pop. Or both if people are having fun. This is just a test really so we won't be playing for that long, really just around an hour or 2. Last thoughts is try talking to anyone on your friends list to get more players to come, the more people to test the better we can make empires. This is not a huge time sink and all we ask you to do is just show and play empires, and possibly give feedback on how you like or dislike any changes.
