Welcome to Cirque du Brawlee! Awesomenauts 4.4 brings a massive batch of cool new features, and the Open Beta is available to all players right now for to try them out.
On the Streamisho today, we unveiled the biggest feature coming in Update 4.4: Weekly Brawls! Every week we'll have a new event for you to play, and during the Open Beta we'll be testing a whole bunch of them. Once Update 4.4: Cirque du Brawlee launches, these Weekly Brawls will be live from every Thursday until late Sunday... and you're getting a new Brawl every weekend.
To kick things off, the Beta currently has the Girl Power Brawl active. This boils down to a regular match of 'Nauts, but you only have access to female 'Nauts. That means your selection is limited to Coco, Raelynn, Penny, Nibbs, Dizzy, Ayla, and Ksenia!
The Brawl available in the Beta will change in a few days, allowing you to try out some of the other Brawls we've got lined up for you. We'll keep them a surprise for now... but how does an All-Rocco Deathmatch sound, for starters?
On top of these Brawls, the Open Beta also includes the features we revealed last week. Try out some of the new Daily Missions and the new Livetiles in the main menu
, and give us your feedback on the extensive balance changes that are included in this update.
To access the Open Beta, all you have to do is follow these steps:
- Right-click Awesomenauts in your library and select "Properties"
- In the DLC tab, make sure the "Awesomenauts - Beta dual-load PC" is checked. If you're playing or Mac or Linux, tab the DLC for that OS instead.
- Head to the "Beta" tab and switch to "beta - public channel".
- Wait until the beta is downloaded (this can take a while).
- Start the game
- Select "Play Awesomenauts Beta" and hit "PLAY".

. While we try to gather feedback from all our different channels, it's easier for us to keep track of the different opinions and arguments if the discussions are centralized[www.awesomenauts.com]
