SNOW enters closed beta in March.
Recently the Swedish developer Poppermost Productions announced closed beta dates for their upcoming free-to-play, open-world winter sports game, SNOW. Starting on Saturday, March 28, the mountain will open up, with Poppermost granting a set amount of users access to the closed beta on PC for free.
Gamers interested in the closed beta can sign up at http://www.snowthegame.com and will be invited on a first come, first served basis. In addition, the closed beta users will also receive an exclusive Red Bull Sean Petit helmet that they can utilize in-game.
Those who already own SNOW via Steam’s Early Access program will be able to participate in the closed beta starting on Tuesday, March 10.
Alexander Bergendahl, CEO of Poppermost Productions, stated, We couldn’t have made it to this tremendous milestone without the undying support of SNOW’s community. We’re ecstatic to open up the slopes to a wider audience and see how they enjoy the experience SNOW has to offer!”
Poppermost goes on to note that the closed beta marks a critical point in the game’s development, introducing the free-to-play model and granting gamers a chance to discover the plethora of new features that were lacking in Early Access. SNOW’s open-world mountain, Sialia, has several new locations to explore, including a mountain-top observatory, crashed cargo plane, a vineyard, and a luxury hotel support. All of these can be visited either on skis or via the new drone feature, which grants you a small, personal drone to fly around the mountain at your leisure.
The closed beta will also feature event game modes, such as races, slopestyle, big air, and more. In addition, the closed beta will feature a replay mode, player levelling, and online matchmaking. Some of the improvements include an overhaul of the game’s user interface, as well as a redesign of the character store.
Will you be seeing us on the slopes?
