Torn Banner Studios have been busy working away on Mirage: Arcane Warfare. They've posted a of content, and developer blogs for the game since its announcement, and have now announced a Closed Alpha will be happening shortly:

And now we’ve got some news for you: the Mirage Alpha is coming this September! The Mirage Closed Alpha will be subject to the requirements of a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA).

Torn Banner Studios also created a 12 minute gameplay trailer for PAX West, while also delaying the game until early 2017.

We have also decided to move the release date of Mirage to Q1 2017 – a few months later than originally planned. The full release of Mirage will be preceded by a brief Beta testing period

Torn Banner Studios Shows Off Mirage: Arcane Warfare Footage Ahead Of E3

PCGamer wrote a great article on Mirage: Arcane Warfare, in which some new footage was also show. I thought I would post it since coming up to E3, it's a solid read: 

"Physics are a vital part of the game as well, both for the way in which it gives melee combat “a sense of weight,” and also because it's funny. “When you hit someone, it's not like their body just limply falls down. You'll know the strength of that hit you just knocked them with, and their body will go flying across the room,” Senior Brand Manager Alex Hayter says in the video. And that, according to Torn Banner President Steve Piggott, “really adds a lot of humor to the game.”"

Mirage is looking great, and is scheduled for release on this year on PC. You can read the full article here and follow along on Twitter to stay up to date.
