  • Make sure you have the Armored Warfare selected from the list of your games.

To make sure you have the Armored Warfare Early Access 4 selected, please click on the "Game Directory" button and select "Armored Warfare Early Access"


  • In the launcher window, the green button "Play" in the upper right corner will turn into "Download" - press the button and the update process will begin. When the updating process is complete, the button will turn back into "Play"



  • Please make sure to have enough free space on your drive as the game usually requires around 20 GB of space by itself
