Closed Beta Test Phase 3 - Recruitment of Additional Participants

CBT Closed Beta Test Phase 3 - Recruitment of Additional Participants

10/05/2021 20:25

Closed Beta Test Phases 1 and 2 were technical tests, focusing on game functionality and server stress testing. Thanks to the cooperation of everyone who participated, we were able to gather a variety of data that will be used to improve the game upon release. Thank you for all your support!

As we further expand the scope of Closed Beta Test Phase 3, we will be recruiting additional participants.


Phase 3 Overview

During this phase of the Closed Beta Test, we will be performing functionality testing across various platforms, server stress tests involving a large number of players, and checks on the game systems. We aim to fix any issues that are found during these tests and improve the overall quality of the game. For this reason, you may encounter issues such as the game freezing or crashing while playtesting. As you will be playtesting an in-development version, we cannot guarantee that you will have a flawless gameplay experience. We kindly ask you to bear this in mind.
We have prepared a forum specifically for Closed Beta Test participants to provide feedback to the development and live-ops teams. We would very much appreciate it if you could actively make posts when participating in the Closed Beta Test.
