It is now possible for everyone that has Dreamfall Chapters available in their Steam library to opt-in for testing Beta versions of the game.

Simply follow the steps below to enable the Beta-branch and play the test version through Steam:

 

  1. In your Steam library, right-click the game, choose Properties
  2. Click the "Betas" tab, choose the beta entry from the drop-down list.
  3. Steam will now start to update your game files to the currently available beta version.

 

To disable/opt-out of the beta version, simply follow the same instructions, but choose the "None - Opt out..." option in the list under "Betas".

Most often Steam will have to be restarted once you've opted in/out of a beta branch to make sure it has been updated to the current beta version.

The game should be listed as "Dreamfall Chapters [beta branch name]" once it has changed branches successfully. If the correct branch name does not appear, Steam will need a restart.

Regardless, we suggest that Steam is restarted once a beta branch has been enabled, just to make sure.

 

Please see this topic to see what is the current beta version as well as release notes for each beta version.

Please also take some time to read the beta feedback guidelines here.

 

Note that testing of beta versions is only available through Steam.

 

Happy testing, and thank you very much for your help!

Update: Added some lines highlighting the importance of restarting the Steam client after opting into/out of a beta branch.
