Battlecry beta will begin in Australia/New Zealand

Bethesda has brought some of their best games to this year’s PAX Australia. Among them is their 3rd person gun-less free-to-play multiplayer action game, Battlecry. The team released a new trailer during the event, while also offering some new details on the game’s beta.

The trailer offers a small taste of the game’s animated environments, characters, and melee attacks. The trailer’s release is accompanied by a Bethesda announcement that the beta would open exclusively in Australia and New Zealand.

Battlecry has appeared impressive in its limited showings, though there’s still plenty of time left in the game’s ample development cycle. No word on how long the beta’s exclusivity period will last, but expect the beta to also hit North American and European shores in 2015, just as soon as it does battle down under.
