    It appears the servers will only be up for a few hours daily at first. Here is the posting:

    -----------------------

    Early Access Details
    Dear players,

    As May 27th and the start of Early Access nears the excitement has been building. We thought this would it would be a perfect time to look ahead on what you can expect over the coming months.

    Remember you may participant on either or both servers (progress is separate). You will also get an email before the test letting you know the client is ready to pre-load.

    This particular test will still lack many optimizations for lower end computers and 32bit systems. For the best performance we recommend the following:

    RECOMMENDED SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATION IN EA

    Video card GeForce GTX 275
    Processor Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-4440 CPU @ 3.10 GHz (4 cores), ~ 3.1 GHz
    Memory 4GB
    Operating systems:
    Windows Vista Home Premium and above (Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, Ultimate) x64
    Windows 7 Home Basic and above (Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate) (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 x64
    Windows 8 (8, 8 Pro, 8 Enterprise, 8.1, 8.1 Pro, 8.1 Enterprise) x64



    If your computer does not meet the recommendations we still invite you to give us your feedback and results in the technical forum when it’s available on the 27th. Also remember that this is the very early stage of the testing process, so be aware that it is possible there will be server crashes, bugs, and various unforeseen issues. The client is still not optimized but the lower end systems will see improvement in future tests.

    If you are not interested in testing the game at this early stage, we suggest you wait for a few updates. We will however appreciate all of you that are willing to give it a try and help us squash some bugs!

    What happens after this test you may ask? Well more tests of course!

    The first tests will last limited periods of time and will have hour-based schedules. However as we progress towards open beta these tests will become longer and eventually they will be available 24/7.

    So what can you look forward to in future tests?

    Our first update will include major optimization and stability changes. It will also include raising the tier limit to 7 and it will add a new map.

    Beyond that we will continue to add more content a features including:

    • More Vehicles
    • More PvP Maps
    • PvE Maps!
    • Vehicle “decals”
    • Artillery “special shells”
    • New HUD
    • A new Game Mode
    • Basic Clan support (“Battalions”)
    • Balance an bug fixes

    There is however plenty more content and features planned before OBT! While no dates have been set and the content could change, we feel it’s very important to give you a rough idea of what you can expect. During each test we encourage you to leave your feedback because it DOES matter!

    We are committed to making the best vehicle combat experience and with your continued feedback we are confident that it will be possible.

    We also want to remind you that there is no NDA starting May 27th, so you may discuss the game with friends, post videos, stream, write previews, guides, or offer any constructive feedback.

    We will continue to offer free access to the game though contests, social media and popular gaming sites. Watch for announcements! You may also choose to get immediate access by purchasing a founders pack, even after the start of the testing.

    We are really excited to see this next phase of testing and hope to see you on the battlefield

    -Josh
