Popular shooter Raw Data is expected to get a full release in September 2017 for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, but before that happens, players who already own the Early Access version of the title can participate in an open Beta of the PvP expansion Raw Data: Hostile Takeover.
Players who have bought a copy of Raw Data will be able to participate in the weekend Open Beta test. The Beta build of Raw Data is already available to download so players can grab the files ready for when the Beta servers go live on Friday 7th July at 12pm PT. The Beta test will run until Saturday 8th July, with the servers closing at 9pm PT on that day.
Events will be available to players over that time period, such as a Friday ‘Play with the Devs’ session at 3pm-5pm PT, and ‘Happy Hours’ on both Friday and Saturday.
Steam users can opt-in to the Beta by going in to the Steam Library, right-clicking on Raw Data and selecting the BETAS tab from the Properties menu. The development team do note that users who choose to join in the Beta will be playing with an unfinished build, so bugs and glitches should be expected. Single-player and co-op content will also be disabled with users are playing the PvP Beta in order to prevent corruption to existing save files.
Developer Survios have also set up a channel on popular chat application Discord where players who choose to join in the PvP Beta can join in the Hostile Takeover server to discuss the PvP expansion with fellow players as well as the developers. Further information can be found on the Raw Data Steam page.
