Wargaming’s Caliber Sets Sights on Europe, With more than 1m registered players and 53m battles played in CIS already, Caliber is taking the fight to Europe for its next phase of testing
Caliber, the free-to-play third-person tactical shooter from 1C Game Studios and Wargaming has today announced a new and exciting phase of testing in Europe.
After making successful European landfall at Gamescom last year, the team is proud to announce that CBT signups are now open for all European players.
With rigorous testing in CIS that included a closed beta and subsequent OBT, Caliber now boasts more than a million registered players who have played over 53 million battles – thrilling tacticians with its unique team-based action gameplay. Prizing communication, coordination and concerted strategy – Caliber lets teams of four take on AI-controlled operatives in the PvE Spec Ops mode or challenge themselves against other four-strong teams in PvP.
With each team made up of unique operator roles, where players are able to choose from accurately designed national special forces (including Poland’s GROM, the US Navy SEALs and the Kommando Spezialkräfte of Germany) – Caliber challenges players to think about skill balance and battle plans before taking the fight to the enemy.
For Caliber, the move to European testing represents the next successful step in the title’s development, and developers are excited to give CBT sign-ups the opportunity to support this ambitious game.
“We are very grateful to our audience for the great reception to our game in CIS, and look forward to player base growth in Europe. Beginning from our demo at Intel Extreme Masters Expo in Poland, we will start recruiting players that will then join us in Caliber testing when the game becomes available later on this year.” – says Alex Morozov, Marketing Director for Caliber.
1C Game Studios and Wargaming have also pledged bespoke content, collections and stories for European players:
“We will make sure that players in Europe get as much content as possible, with more collections of operators from different countries, more maps, and a story that would bring more context into their gaming experience. Join us via submitting your email on the game’s landing page and stay tuned – tests in Europe are on their way!” – says Kirill Stadnik, Caliber Product Director.
