Munich, Germany – August 8th, 2023 – Chimera Entertainment is proud to reveal that their story-rich strategy game Songs of Silence will be getting its first Closed Beta on August 14th. Sign up here to request access, then join the Discord to participate where you’ll get access to a secret channel until the Beta test starts. For more information, please check out the FAQ.

The Songs of Silence Beta will consist of two different modes: there’s the first two maps of the story-driven single-player campaign mode, which follows a young queen in search for a safe haven for her people, or the solo version of the PvE mode where you play on skirmish maps against the AI. Here players can explore the world and game mechanics on randomized maps at their own pace.

For this Beta, three biomes are available – The Light Side, The Dark World and the Silence – each with unique landscape, factions, armies and challenges. Players can test the 1000 Kingdoms faction, with access to dozens of various units to construct their armies.
