Desperados III beta sign ups are now open

It appears we missed reporting on real-time tactics game Desperados III when it was shown at E3 so we’e going to rectify that by telling you about the closed beta that is about to take place.

Here’s the official description of the game:


Desperados III is a modern real-time tactics game set in a harsh Wild West scenario. You take control of a ragtag band becoming a highly functional group of unlikely heroes and heroines. The very different strong personalities struggle to cooperate at first, but ultimately join forces to combine their distinctive specialties and challenge a seemingly superior foe. Hunted by ruthless bandits and corrupt lawmen, the Desperados need to turn the tables with every mission.


  • Command up to five Desperados and use their lethal skills to stealthily thin out the enemy rows
  • Approach each mission with a big variety of different solutions and paths
  • Resolve seemingly impossible large enemy setups with careful planning and perfectly timed executions
  • Witness the glory of classic Wild West scenarios like frontier towns, desert canyons, Mississippi swamps, sprawling modern cities and many more by day and night
  • Defeat your foes choosing between deadly and non-lethal options, stealth and blazing guns and further adjust the game to your playstyle with various difficulty settings and special replayability challenges

If that sounds your sort of thing then you an sign up for the closed beta that will start on Tuesday, July 9th and will end on Sunday. Only 500 participants which will get the chance to play the game and as far as I can see THQNordic have not specified a platform, but the T&Cs mention Steam so this is probably for PC gamers only.

The developers Mimimi Games have also took a swipe at other betas that clearly were just pre-release adverts for the game.

“This is not the a “pre order now to play the game before anyone – but we don’t really need you feedback because release is in just two weeks”-closed beta, people might be used to nowadays. We really want to invite the community to play the game while it’s still under construction and share their thoughts and wishes with us. And we want to have the time to react to the players’ input and to optimize the game together.” says Dennis Huszak, Narrative Director at Mimimi Games.

Desperados III will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later in 2019.
