After over a decade in dormant, the tactical action series Desperados is finally making a comeback with Desperados III demonstrated at E3 last month. Now, developers THQ Nordic and Mimimi Productions are launching a Closed Beta to look for more feedback from players to further polish their game. Mimimi has also released a new development trailer to get the hype up. You can check it out right below:

For those who don’t know, Desperados is a series of isometric action/strategy franchise kind of similar to Commandos, albeit with a Wild West setting. You control a gang of… well, Desperados, each having his or her own unique abilities to contribute to the team, to play through a story that spans across a series of missions with several goals and objectives.

This Closed Beta for Desperados III is scheduled to run from July 9 to July 21, 11 pm PT (11:30 am on July 22 IST). Interested players can sign up through this Google Form, and the developer will pick 500 testers out of the applicants and provide them with a near-final build of the game to collect their feedback and iron out any issue before launch. Of course, if you do end up partaking in the Closed Beta, you’ll have to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement, so it’ll be illegal for you to share any video, picture, or other information regarding the game.

Narrative Director Dennis Huszak seems pretty enthusiastic about the upcoming test, emphasizing that “This is not the ‘pre-order now to play the game before anyone else and give us feedback, though the full release coming just two weeks later’ closed beta bullsh** people are used to by now” and that the development team is looking for genuine, honest feedback to perfect the game.

“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 also want to give ourselves the time to react to the players’ input. It’s a matter of respect,” Huszak added.

Desperados III will be coming out later this year for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
