The War Support was a referral campaign designed to reward players for spreading the word about Second Extinction to their friends. When a player signed up, they were given a unique referral link which they could then share with their friends to get them to sign up.

The campaign launched with the announcement of the game as a way to spread awareness. Only a limited number of slots for the Beta were available, with the reward being discontinued on July 9th of 2020. Ultimately, the Beta was canceled in favor of an open Early Access on Steam.
