Public Test Access Guide

Through our Public Test program, players can try upcoming features in World of Warships before they're finalized. These tests are usually held shortly before an update launches, to give you the opportunity to provide feedback to the development team. It's a great way to allow your voice to be heard, assist development, and get a sneek peek of what's in store!

How Do I Access the Public Test?

Heads up! The Public Test is on a different server, so you'll need to create a new account with the same email address you used to create your regular one in order to test it. After you click the "Register" button, please click the "Join Now" button instead of "Log in" to create your new Test account!

Steam & Microsoft Store users follow the same process when joining the Public Test. This means you'll have to create a Wargaming account with your Steam / Windows credentials to receive a Wargaming ID (this ensures any public test rewards will be credited to your Steam / Windows account). The next step is to download the Public Test client - this will run separately from the Steam / Windows Store version of the game.

To access the World of Warships Public Test:

  • Go to to the Public Test website. You can change the language by clicking on the map icon in the corner of the page.
  • Click the "Join Now" button. You will need to create a new account to participate because the Public Test system isn't connected to the regular game servers. Your current Wargaming.net ID will not allow you to access the Public Test.

Game Center

  • If you have the Wargaming.net Game Center, Click the double-arrow icon at the top right, select "Import Installed Games" and add the Public Test to your Game Center!
  • When it downloads use the drop-down menu in the upper left section called "Game Instance" to switch between the game and the Public Test.

 

Warning: You must register your Public Test account with the same email address as your live account to collect your rewards. No exceptions.

 

  • Once you've created a Public Test account, you'll receive a confirmation email (if using Gmail, see "Promotions"). Click the link in the message to activate your account.
  • Once activated, you'll be able to log in using the Public Test client (again, separate from the regular game launcher) which can be downloaded below:

Download Public Test Client

Your game resources, progress, stats, financial data, etc. will NOT be transferred or in any way affected by your Public Test account. Purchases are not possible on the Public Test server.

Feedback

The purpose of Public Tests is to gather feedback, so we're eager to hear what you think. We've created a forum section for Public Test feedback and to see what you think about new features and changes. Let your voice be heard!
