Players eagerly awaiting Square Enix’s fall of Babylon are in luck – a closed beta test for the game is coming in the very near future! The publisher revealed that there will be three different dates for the first phase of the closed beta test, one for each region. Players from Japan will participate on July 29 (2 a.m. to 6 a.m. PT), the North American test will take place on August 5 (6 p.m. to 10 p.m. PT) and the European test will take place on August 12 (6pm to 10pm UK). This version of the closed beta will be available exclusively on Steam, while future phases will be available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
The beta will be available to players in the US, Canada, Brazil, UK, France, Germany, and Japan. At this time, Square Enix and developer PlatinumGames have not announced dates for the second and third phases. Those interested in participating in any of these phases can register on the game’s official website right here. Players will not be able to share screenshots, videos or information about the beta version online, and those who violate these terms will have their participation revoked. However, the game’s official website states that there are plans to eventually remove these restrictions.
Unfortunately, those who participate in the beta will not be able to transfer character data to the full version of the game. It makes sense that developers don’t want to give testers an edge over those who won’t get a chance to participate, but some players might hesitate to spend time testing the game if that time ends up “wasted.” Still, it’s an excellent opportunity to shape the future of Babylon’s Fall and help it realize its full potential.
Babylon’s Fall will be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. Interested in seeing the Babylon’s Fall beta test? What are your initial impressions of the game? Let us know in the comments.
