How to sign up for WW3 closed beta test?
The WW3 closed beta test is not free, as it essentially represents a soft launch of the game.

WW3 closed beta test preload
The closed beta build will become available for preload a day prior to its launch on 25th November.
This means that on 24th November at midnight local time, you will be able to start with the pre-load via MY.GAMES GameCenter for MY.GAMES and Steam players.
To preload the game, simply click on the big blue "Install" button in your Steam library.
It's important to note that previous builds of the game have been deactivated and that you will need to uninstall them before installing the CBT build.
In addition to downloading the game, players on Steam will need to download the MY.GAMES launcher (approximately 180MB), which is WW3's main launcher and it is mandatory for account authentication.
