“Space Gears announces dates for Steam Global Playtest”

The Space Gears PvP Showdown trailer features combat footage from the trial version.

Seoul, South Korea – May 26, 2023 Pentapeak Studios, a subsidiary of 2bytes Corporation, announced that it will begin the first global Steam test of its Space Gears game on June 2 at 16:00 Korea Standard Time (KST).


The playtest will last a total of four days, from June 2 to June 5. There are no restrictions on the number of participants or entry requirements. Anyone who wishes to play ‘Space Gears’ in advance can participate.


Set in a captivating 22nd century sci-fi universe, Space Gears takes place against the backdrop of a war that broke out during the terraforming of Mars. Players assume the roles of pioneers and commanders, mining resources, researching terraforming technologies, assembling robots, and engaging in PvE and PvP battles as they explore and transform Mars.


During this playtest, players will be able to directly control mechanical units and experience PvE and PvP gameplay. In particular, the PvP map, tentatively named Plains Showdown, is expected to stage intense battles as users compete fiercely for control of strategic strongholds.


Community events will also take place during the trial period. By completing certain tasks, such as inviting friends to the Space Gears Discord server and following Space Gears on social media, users will have a chance to earn Discord Nitro subscriptions. In addition, combat highlights captured in the test version will be available for viewing on the official Space Gears YouTube channel.



Space Gears Executive Producer Ham Youngchul mentioned, “It’s quite stressful to finally release our first game after 14 months of development. Space Gears is our attempt to lower the barrier to entry of classic RTS games. We want to to create a game that will be enjoyed by as many players as possible,” he then added, “The main goal of this test is to gauge interest in the game’s PvP battles. We hope to collect feedback from players around the world and do our best to deliver the highest quality game when it comes time to launch.”


Space Gears is scheduled to run its global playtest from June 2-5, participate in Steam Next Fest in June, and continue with global Early Access via Steam later this year. The game is being developed to target global gamers who enjoy RTS, strategy, war games, and sci-fi.
