Realm Royale Test Server – How-to Use & Install, Weapon Test Patch 3 Notes

Realm Royale now has a test server that will be used for players to try out potential new patches!

Hi-Rez has enabled a test server to try it patches for future updates. You can be a big help to the game if you join up to the server and test all of the new additions! Finding bugs and issues and reporting them will make it easier for them to find them and squash them before they go to the live server.

How-to Join the Realm Royale Test Server

This is pretty easy, but I've seen a lot of people asking about it. Head to Steam and type in Realm Royale into the search. You'll want to go to the STORE page for the game, and under the Early Access area you will find this:

Click the link that says "Click here" and you will be able to install the public test version of Realm Royale. This installs a SEPARATE version of the game, so it won't overwrite your current version and you will need extra space to have it on your drive. This also doesn't carry over any of your rankings, keybindings, or settings! Be sure to fix those before you play.
