A handful of games were showcased at the Game Awards this year, and Wayfinder is one of them. A new MMORPG by developer Airship Syndicate, Wayfinder is scheduled for release in 2023. Along with its reveal is an announcement of its upcoming closed beta tests. Here's how to sign up.
Wayfinder takes place in the world of Evenor, which is overrun by chaos. Each player steps into the role of Wayfinder in hopes of controlling the chaos while on expeditions. The game's website notes that it is "social at heart" and that Wayfinders are "stronger together," emphasizing that playing with friends will maximize its gameplay features.
How to Sign Up for the Wayfinder Closed Beta
Wayfinder's beta will be available on PlayStation 4 and 5 and on PC through Steam. The sign-up form is on its website, which it will ask for your email and date of birth. There will be several participation opportunities dependent on platform, which are as follows:
- Dec. 13: PC
- January 2023: PlayStation 5, PC
- Early 2023: PlayStation 5, PC
- Spring 2023 (Early Access): PlayStation 4 and 5, PC
Currently, there isn't a way to choose a specific date from the list, but the website has implied that the earlier you sign up, the more likely you will be chosen for the Dec. 13 beta.
Wayfinder's full release will be in late 2023, where it will be free-to-play on all of its respective platforms.
