We heard you loud and clear asking for updates on the DW2 release, and we assure you that DW2 is almost ready.

At the moment we don’t have a release date, but we can tell you that it will be in Q1 2022. The official date will be revealed in the upcoming months so stay tuned to find out more.

In the meantime, we invite you to join the new wave of beta testing that will open in the next few days

To sign up, head to Matrix's beta signup page and submit your application!

I won't lie I'm a bit sad for the delay but if it means avoiding unhealthy Dev crunch so be it.

Also I've already sent my Beta application but is what Marco said during the Tea time stream true? Because if so lucky me

FYI I've been unable to get the beta application to go through. It says forum credentials aren't valid even though using the exact same ones I log in with here. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?

Agreed in the last few Tea Times I always felt for Elliot when I heard he is crunching away like mad. I also was a bit sad when I heard about the delay but of course health / work life balance is far more important. Looking forward to new updates and hopefully the beta!

I applied for the beta on the Slitherine website some time ago, didn't realize it was also on the Matrix Games website. Hopefully I get selected, looking forward to helping this game be a strong contender when it releases!

Just to update this, having my password reset and changed fixed this. Apparently the site was confused about what my password was supposed to be, so I could log into the forum but not anything else. So yay, applied successfully!

Applied. Hopefully, the Matrix gods will smile upon me and approve my application.

This is what I put in the - About yourself section
I have the original Distant Worlds on CD, not DVD. CD. 650MB storage space compact disks. When the advent of Steam started and digital distribution became normal, when each Distant Worlds expansion came out I always selected to also purchase a physical copy. Distant Worlds has been the core of my space 4x love affair and is regularly played. BaconMod & RetreatUE are my staples. I have been checking and re-checking the Distant Worlds forums (even when it was on the old CodeForce website) for years waiting for news. Very excited, long term fan. Looking forward to Distant Worlds 2.

It said I've already signed up to the beta does this mean you'll use my old application for the new wave also?

Was my most anticipated game of 2021. Guess it now will be the most anticipated game of 2022 for me. Can´t wait for this game to come out. Such a great and unique concept of a game

If i remember correctly, they said you only have to sign once. And when you are not in the first wave you have a chance in the secound again without new registration...

I have already signed up for another beta. So I'll pass on this one.

Do we need to sign up again for beta or are you using the previous list that we signed up on but were not selected? Thanks

How funny, ahem, NOT, I am typing and typing and then, after sending my application it says:
You have already applied for this beta.

Oh no, please, do not forget me in this beta!
I need this and you need me!

Phew! I survived a whole week since this announcement. Even if I am not accepted into the beta I can see I might last the 20-30 weeks until release....

Im thinking in silence about what i could possibly do to increase my chances to be selected. Since i know the game is only coming next year the emptiness is growing inside. I really dont want to wait till next year, even with the new battlefield coming i know i will be longing for this game.

I played dwu today but knowing that dw2 is coming and how amazing it is gonna be... so basically they ruined dwu but i have no access to dw2. In fact even playing stellaris just does not cut it anymore. I dont know what i should do so im just hoping that 1 day ill get an email so i can try dw2. The limited gameplay footage we have is also not helping, i have so many questions, at least watching some gameplay would help, even if its not as good as discovering the game for myself. That first playthrough is always so immersive when you contemplate your choices, more focus on discovery, you read every text.

So buttom line i cant take it anymore. Fingers crossed and if all else fails i hope the game comes in january the latest and its gonna be at least half as amazing as i imagine. Then i dont think ill need other games on my pc hahaha

Using an on-line calculator, I just found that it is 5.3 Months or 22.9 Weeks or 160.0 Days or 3840.0 Hours or 230400.0 Minutes or 13824000 Seconds until the end of Q1 2022.

I am getting my head around it arriving any sooner being a bonus, and getting into beta a super dooper bonus. That way I won't be disappointed.

TBH, RgZera I doubt there is any way of increasing chances - I bet they have thousands of applicants and just have to get a cross-section.

Posting here does relieve some tension though. Maybe we need an off-topic forum game thread or something to post in meanwhile - a waiting room thread, or pub thread, so people subscribed to this one don't keep getting e-mail notifications every time someone like me posts out of frustration....


Edit - dang it I went and did it...

I'm wondering if the modding guide can be dropped before launch as I would love to see what new goodies are unlocked to play around with on launch day.
