According to the community website Hanging Garden, Babylon’s Fall Phase 1 Closed Beta will be testing on three servers, Japan, NA and EU servers. The goal for Phase 1 is to test the technical aspects of the game. According to the latest post, they plan to unlock additional content with each phase.
The participants for the closed beta will be chosen from the sign up which took place at the end of June. The beta will be dependent on the region of your Square Enix account. All progress and save game data will not carry over to the full release of the game.
Previously it was announced that Phase 1 would be testing on PC via Steam, with Phase Two adding Playstation 4, and Phase Three adding Playstation 5. The Playstation 5 however will be accessing the PS4 version through backwards compatibility and will not contain any of the upgrade features that will be available in the full version.

So far details about whether the co-op will be limited to dungeons only are unknown, or whether you can team up in other areas of the game.
