Blue Protocol Announces New Closed Beta in November!
Bandai Namco just held their most recent live stream earlier this week and with it revealed they’re entering into a brand new Closed Beta test phase. This took players by surprise, as other than some brief character customization updates via Twitter, the Blue Protocol team have been relatively quiet. Pre-registration for the Closed Beta test is currently open, and will remain open until October 26th, 2020, at 11:00AM. This test will, much like the first Closed Beta and the Alpha test before it, be limited to players that live within Japan exclusively, and have a Bandai Namco ID. This is easy to get around though simply by using a VPN, which most MMO players have in this day and age.
The purpose of this brand new Closed Beta test is to get an accurate gauge on the new match-making tweaks the team is in the process of testing. Everything else: Classes, areas, gear will all be the very same from the Beta test, however, it’s worth noting at the same time that all content that doesn’t revolve around the match-making and the dungeons specifically will be inaccessible.
There will be a grand total of 15,000 applicants allowed to participate in the Closed Beta, with players being chosen via lottery if more than 15,000 players apply.
We have a guide available on how to go about registering for the Closed Beta test for players that are interested, otherwise, we’ll see you all in-game sometime soon!
