Hi everyone,

This week's Closed Beta session is open!

It will be closed next Monday, August 6th at 5:30PM CEST.

Note that squad mode isn't available yet as we're running some last tests. It will be added in the Beta later today.

If you haven't received a key, don't worry as we send more regularly. Make sure you're registered for the Beta here to receive your key.

What to expect from the Beta?

We continue to improve the game based on your feedback from the previous Beta session and we're happy to let you play the latest version of the game in development. Our main priority is ironing out the server issues to ensure a smooth experience for all players.

Please find below this week's changelog:

  • Greatly reduced the freeze when jumping from the helicopter.
  • Fixed a bug where weapons were not being automatically equipped after attaching to the evacuation rope.
  • Fixed a bug where a downed member of a squad would remain attached to the evacuation rope. Now the squad member will fall off the rope and take fall damage, further reducing the time their team mates have to revive them.
  • Improved corpse rag doll animations.
  • Improved the visualization of when a character is pushed by a vehicle.
  • Fixed a bug where characters with broken legs were still able to sprint.
  • Fixed a bug where taking damage wasn’t interrupting the health regeneration effects from consumables.
  • Fixed a bug which allowed players to shoot without delay between bursts.
  • Fixed a bug where players were able to reload while sprinting.
  • Fixed a bug when you were able to change weapons without leaving ADS.
  • Updated the window breaking mechanic. Now players can throw grenades through windows.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes doors would have different states between the client and server. This caused some players to be blocked by open doors and some to pass through closed doors.
  • Improved rain effects increasing the intensity of the wet landscape.
  • Fixed a bug that occasionally resulted in the cause of death not appearing on the death screen.
  • Small fixes in the lobby's UI.

Quick reminder that the this Beta isn't covered by a NDA, meaning you can share videos, images and info about the game this week. Keep in mind that it's a work-in-progress version of the game, and players may encounter bugs or crashes, that may lower the quality of the in-game experience.

We’d love your help in identifying these bugs, so that we can make the Early Access release version of Fear The Wolves the best that it can be.

Please join the Fear The Wolves official Discord to synchronize with the team and testers.

Hello, we are investigating an issue where players are stuck at the main menu with "Match Found" being displayed.

We will keep you updated with our progress and expect this issue to be resolved quickly.

Edit: The current temporary fix that we've implemented right now only open a few matches to the EU server.

We are working on fixing this issue for all servers, sorry about the inconvenience!

Issue isn't fixed for me. After 2 restarts my character still remains stuck in the lobby (and has been for over 10 minutes).

The current temporary fix that we've implemented right now only open a few matches to the EU server, hence the problem if you're not in EU or if too many players are playing in the EU region.

I am unable to log in the game it says "user restricted by access level" how to fix this and get into the game????

I cannot play because matchmaking is taking an eternity because there are never enough players to fill the lobby. I am trying to play from India. Can I change my server to EU somehow. Please help me so I can play as well.

Hi, we'll soon hotfix the game to allow you to change your region.

My Steam doesn't see any updates, but when i start the game i see the "Invalid version. Client update required "massage.

Waiting for a key for so long and still nothing, missed previous test, missing current one, completely disappointed 😢
update: god bless ebay

are you all mocking ? They told that was working on the problem

Hey, I'm new to FTW Playing from Philippines, EU is the lowest ping with around 150, but stuck with 6 players in queue, NA fills up pretty quick but it's 300ms.. Really need some Asia servers, anything in singapore/japan/china would be great but I know it takes time.

Still managed to enjoy a few matches even with the lag, performance is pretty good around 80-90fps through all presets with a GTX 1070 Ti/i7-6700k. I've included a vid of my beta experience here(particularly for the DEVs) so you can see general performance, glitches & bugs I encountered. Gamma default 50 was waaay too high aswell, setting it to 25-30 made the game look way better & less washed out. Took me awhile to realize it too so hope that helps some other players.

Thanks & Keep up the great work!

I've gotten two emails notifying me of the beta, but no key/activation code/download link. What's up with that? I've been signed up for an invite for a while, finally got the emails the other day, but no invite. The email I got made it sound like I was in. I've checked everywhere but no luck. This stinks! Really wanted to try it out!

@industria i got the email with the beta info, but no invite or key. i'm so confused. it's not in my spam or deleted, it's just not there.

TODAY:

Fear the Wolbes Beta

Fingers, little finger must be longer
ring finger must be nealry as same as long as middle finger

NICE:
Animations got fixed
No olts anymore, ok...

30 FPS in loabby
10 fps in heli
50 FPS in gliding
<40 FPS in regular gameplay

quit game button not on bottom, confusing

mouse senstitity 1.1 too low, 1.5 too high. 1.23 seems ok

GIVE OUT MORE KEYS - Queue times are stupid and NO ONE is addressing the issue. Cmon guys.

@mofragn because no one is playing. Some people weren't able to update the game through steam (I am one of those people). Some people are tired of waiting for hours for game to load. Some people are sick of poor optimization. It was fine to give the game first tests and see what this game looks like. But now it couse so much pain to play only one round.

Hello, we're sorry you're having issues with the game. NA region is indeed having a lot of issues to get games but the Beta did run pretty well with a lot of games played in EU.

We're working on everything you mentionned to have a smooth experience for everyone. Could you tell more about your issue with Steam update?
