Paradox Interactive has announced that beta keys will now be sent out to the lucky few from over 100,000 gamers who signed up to test the War of the Roses (it's not to late to sign up). On top of that, the game will be available to pre-order from August 20.
"It's a real testament to the hard work that Fatshark has put into the game, that over 100,000 people have signed up for the Beta," said senior producer Gordon Van Dyke.
"The level of enthusiasm that people have had to start playing has been incredible, and we can't wait to hear what they think once they're actually in the game. Our goal right now is to make sure every last person who signed up gets into the beta, but forging 100,000 swords takes a while. We'll be letting folks in, following the priority order we've set, and I'll see every last one of you on the battlefield!"
