What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our team has been hard at work making Beyond The Wire, and we’re busy creating an impressive multiplayer experience for First Person Shooter Fans. Our goal is to work closely with our community from Day 1, to ensure that our ideas and features deliver on the best World War 1 gaming experience possible. We feel Early Access is the most ideal way to develop a strong relationship with our playerbase right out of the gate, and also help to ensure we are delivering an amazing gaming experience for everyone!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are anticipating Beyond The Wire to launch sometime in 2021 or 2022. Our desire is to ensure a strong and compelling feature set for the 1.0 release, with exciting content that will keep our existing community happy and entice new players to experience Beyond The Wire. Our team is committed to excellence.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“In the full version, players will be able to enjoy more maps, more factions, more weapons, several different game modes, great performance, and lots of quality-of-life improvements. Our aim is to heavily polish everything about the Beyond The Wire experience for our 1.0 release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Beyond The Wire currently includes three factions, multiple game modes, three maps, and a wide variety of weapons. It supports matches of up to 100 players in 50v50 combat. The game also features our advanced Melee System, which is more robust than anything seen in a World War 1 game to date, adding a new layer of complexity to combat.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We do not intend to raise or lower the price of Beyond The Wire after Early Access, however this is subject to change depending on the circumstances of our 1.0 release. If for some very unexpected reason we do end up making a price adjustment to Beyond The Wire, we would provide our community with full transparency as to why.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We believe that a close and healthy relationship between the community and us developers is vital for the game to succeed! For this reason we embrace an open approach to community engagement. We will provide the support and tools necessary for the community to thrive and grow over time. Such tools will include a Modding SDK, which we’re hoping to release later this year.”

About This Game

Beyond the Wire is a large scale multiplayer first-person shooter immersing players in the frantic and bloody Western Front of the Great War. In battles with up to 100 real-world combatants, players will have to contend with large open maps and tight claustrophobic trenches. Utilizing both period-appropriate guns and a more tactical close-quarters melee combat system, the action in Beyond the Wire is more comprehensive than anything seen in a WW1 game to date.

Soon entering Closed Alpha, Beyond the Wire will have an Early Access release in 2020. Wishlist now for development updates and information about release!

Tense & Chilling Trench Warfare

It’s muddy, it’s bloody, it’s gruesome. Tight corners, waves of bayonets on all sides, and limited vision - this game shows off Trench Warfare at its worst. Are you up to the challenge?

Massive Multiplayer Action

100 players at a time face off in 50v50 tactical combat, with an emphasis on methodical bolt action rifle combat and the brutal scale of action soldiers faced on the front lines of the Great War.

A Unique Melee System

Weapon type and player stamina both have an impact on feel and effectiveness of Melee attacks. Bayonet charges add one last brutal option to the arsenal of choices players have at their disposal. All of this adds to the realistic portrayal of World War 1 combat.

Team-focused Gameplay

Co-ordinate and chat with your fellow soldiers-at-arms! Beyond the Wire places an emphasis on team collaboration. Players succeed only when their teammates do.

Cinematic Vistas

Beautifully crafted maps provide a rich playing environment that helps to further emphasize tactical and strategic challenges.

Graphic Imagery

The horrors of war are honestly represented with realistic gore, brutal violence, and vision limiting attacks such as chlorine gas or white phosphorus.

Historically Inspired Weapons

Weapons created with an emphasis on historical accuracy, with minor changes made only when it creates a more engaging and fun gameplay experience. While Beyond The Wire is not a simulation game, we strive for as much accuracy as possible while still ensuring a fun First Person Shooter experience for a wide range of players.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

Beyond the Wire includes violence and gore as expected from a military war game.
