During the closed beta testing period, players will enter a vast MMO world, complete with stunning landscapes, an epic storyline, immense customization options and adorably powerful animals to fight alongside as they climb The Chosen’s colossal skill tree.

Closed beta testers will get a head start in plotting their quest for the Golden Dragon mount, victory for their battalion, and ultimate glory as The Chosen. At launch, everyone can join the action in Snail’s first major free-to-play release since hit MMORTS Ministry of War launched last year.
