    Round Five of the Mirage: Arcane Warfare Public Closed Alpha begins tomorrow, running Feb 2-5!

    We plan to have servers live by approximately 3pm ET or before.

    The Alpha, which started September 2016, will provide select participants with the opportunity to playtest Mirage and provide feedback to help shape the direction of the game as we move towards its release in 2017.

    We are gradually adding new participants into the Alpha, based on our ongoing list of registered members from our sign-up on While we can’t offer garuntees, we are trying our best to get every person who has signed up into the Alpha - if you registered and think you’ve been missed, please send an email to contact[at]tornbanner[dot]com.

    Our usual FAQ:

    I was in a previous round. Am I in this round now?

    Yes, you’re automatically in and we want you to play again! You can launch the Alpha through the Mirage: Arcane Warfare Public Test app on Steam as before. Anyone invited will have Alpha access for all future rounds, just launch it again.

    I didn’t get a key! How do I get in?

    If you have not been invited to the Alpha yet, please be patient and we will hope to get you a key in the near future. We cannot guarantee that all registrants will get a key, but we are working to include as many dedicated testers as possible. If you registered and think you’ve been missed, please send an email to contact[at]tornbanner[dot]com. And always be sure to check your junk mail before asking!

    Can I pay to get in?

    No, the Alpha is free. Access is limited to registrants on This is our opportunity to get people volunteering their time to playtest Mirage, providing us with feedback so we can iterate on our development of Mirage as we move towards launch.

    How long will the Alpha last?

    I registered for the “Beta” on your website a while ago. Am I in the Alpha?
