Giveaway: 3,000 Mirage: Arcane Warfare beta keys

Mirage: Arcane Warfare [official site] is the sorcerer successor to Chivalry: Medieval Warfare’s swordy multiplayer, in which two teams fight one another in tense fights requiring more skill than simply pulling a trigger. The beta has been running since March but just got a major update adding nine new maps and a character customisation system. To mark the occasion, we’ve got 3,000 new beta keys to giveaway below.

There are GIFs on the link above showing the new customisation, which lets you change each character’s skin colour, jaunty hats, decorative shoulder pads and cudgel style. Or you can watch the beta launch trailer for a greater sense of the game in action:

We’re running this as a raffle. Entering via the widget below, which can be done multiple times, enters your name into a big virtual hat. Next Tuesday we will 3,000 names from this virtual hat with our 3,000 virtual hands and then send the winners a key via email in the days after. There are three ways to enter: subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, or through Facebook. The latter requires a Facebook account and granting some permissions to the Gleam app; sorry, but this is necessary to stop bots and key resellers stuffing the ballots (or at least reduce the number of them).

Gleam don’t use your data for anything else and you can remove the Facebook app’s permissions after entering. RPS won’t use your email address for anything other than sending you your key should you win.

    I got one of these last time, and I was pretty underwhelmed. It’s like a clunkier, less-fun overwatch.

      I’m glad that I’m not the only one who feels this way. I loved Chivalry. When I noticed I was actively forcing myself to try and enjoy this I just stopped playing.

      • Person of Interest says:

        I’m in the same boat as you: loved Chivalry brawls, and I play a lot of Overwatch, but the Mirage beta is a drag. I hope it’s due to a couple problems that only apply to the beta: 6v6 player cap, and a small pool of players with wide differences in skill.

        But I’m worried it might be because I don’t like the abilities, which feel arbitrary (a feeling reinforced by the mix-and-match customization), or the maps, or something core to the game.

        Maybe in the full game, I’ll splat a half dozen enemies at once with a ridiculous spiked ball, hear some over-the-top voice reaction, and all will be well.

    I had a key too and I thought it look a bit like a two man indy project. The graphics, the animation… no good

    Was really looking forward to this… felt that with Chivalry as a foundation to build on this could only be a great game.

    Boy was I wrong.

    Feels like everything that should have been learned, wasn’t, and everything that was fun about Chivalry was thrown out the window.

    I get this is a different game with a different pace… but something crucial has been lost along the way.
