STEAM DEV BUILD ACCESS
HOW TO ACCESS THE DEV BUILD
We make two builds available for testing. The General Availability (GA) build, is an official release. The Development Staging (DEV) build is one or more versions more recent than the GA. The DEV build contains new bug fixes, tweaks, features etc which will later be released as a GA build.
You won’t have access to the GA and DEV builds at the same time. It’s either one or the other. You can switch between the two builds by using the drop-down BETA menu in STEAM. To revert to the GA build at any time, choose the opt-out option from within the BETA menu tab.
The Dev Staging Server (DSS) is totally different from the GA game servers. So if you are on DEV, when you start/login, you are automatically connected to the DEV game server, with no access to the GA server; and vice versa.
- Run the Steam client
- From the games library, right-click on the game properties
- From the BETA tab, select devstaging-internal DSS builds from the drop-down menu
- Wait for the download to complete
- Run the game as normal. The client will then automatically connect to the DEV server
