Company: Yacuba Games
March 2nd, 2012 - The highly anticipated Army Rage Open Beta version will soon be online, publisher Yacuba Games has officially announced. The new update of the WWII MMOFPS game is the first major result of players’ ideas and the team’s efforts – many suggestions that were given and many fixes of issues that were reported during the closed beta test are now ready to become a fact!

Army Rage open beta launch will offer many exclusive features, including: various rankings, new maps, new weapons, new vehicles, iron sight for both bolt-action and semi-automatic rifles, upgraded deaths animation and more realistic character visual effects, new skills, RAGE abilities, as well as an entirely new game economy developed especially for Army Rage players and never experienced so far in free-to-play MMO games providing the first of its kind game balance system. Furthermore, this is not all that the new version of Army Rage will offer to its players – the start of OBT will mark the beginning of major efforts for improving the graphics of the game itself and all the user interface features.

Highlights from the closed beta:
Army Rage entered closed beta in Europe on 12th December, 2011 and in less than 3 months its dedicated development team at Tuyasoft managed to fix all most important issues, such as for example glitching and going out of maps which are usually a great problem for a long time for client-based games.
Army Rage has been generously supported by European players during its short but effective closed beta stage, that’s why the game team thanks players for being part of this test, for their enthusiasm and friendly attitude. The players have proven very serious and have built the first steps to a big and impressive community. As a sign of gratitude all participants in the closed beta will receive a great surprise from Army Rage team when the open beta starts.
