What is Public Test Server and how to join

Public Test Server is a special server running the newest version of the game. Its goal is to provide the players with the option to test the newest game build, although such builds often have more issues and bugs than the live server. It is now available for every player with Early Access without any restrictions. The main features of Public Test Server (compared to the Early Access server) are:

  • The progression is significantly faster in order for players to unlock the vehicles for testing
  • Tier 1-4 vehicles are awarded for free to every player
  • The server runs the latest version that can however contain more bugs than the live Early Access version
  • It is active only during certain hours (currently 8PM - 8AM CEST, 12PM-12AM PDT)

To join Public Test Server, please follow these easy steps:

  • Open the launcher (available in the download section)
  • On the upper bar, select "Game Directory"
  • From the games menu, select "Armored Warfare Public Test Server"
  • Download the PTS client (unfortunately a necessary step due to the fact the Early Access and the PTS servers are not running the same version of the game)

See you on the battlefield!
