Housemarque Holds Closed PC BETA for Nex Machina!

Today at 16:35 Rudolf Westerholm




We will randomly select a few hundred participants for the closed PC Beta to give feedback and playtest Nex Machina. Game content will be limited to a subset of the full game’s features, similar to a demo.



Starting on the 21st of April 2017 and ending on the 1st of May 2017.



We need your input so that we can tweak the game and gameplay to make the game even better. We want to reach out to our biggest fans for their valuable input!



The game is not yet fully optimized, and thus we expect you to meet the following requirements:

OS64 bit Windows 10 / 8 / 7
ProcessorIntel Core i5-4690 or AMD FX-4300
Memory8 GB RAM
Graphics4 GB Video RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390

A Steam account is mandatory!



  1. Register via Google Form:
  2. Wait for Housemarque to contact you (we are sorry, we cannot accept all of you).


No live streaming of the game is allowed at this point, but if you want to capture materials for later release on YouTube, we will have guidelines for content creation. All gameplay footage from the beta is open to be captured and used in videos.
Only UI and game menus are restricted in the current form. If a video contains UI or menu parts, it needs to be cleared on the “media” Discord channel of the dedicated Nex Machina Discord hub.  We will send invites to Discord for selected participants.
All videos to be published are recommended to be posted in the channel so they can be then shared on our social media.


Please note: The embargo date for all materials from the beta is locked at 3pm CET on Thursday the 27th of April. For additional information you can contact @hmq_mbace on the discord channel or directly via email at
