Beta Dates and Times[edit]

Currently, those who pre-order the game for the Xbox One will be able to take part in the B.E.T.A earlier than others on October 23rd, while PS4 and PC users will be able to join later on October 28th.

It has been indicated that in an effort to “break the game” the times will be sporadic and varied instead of the usual ‘play for x hours straight’. This means that the B.E.T.A will only be accessible for a few hours at a time at random intervals, and the timing of announcements may be haphazard.

See below for a list of confirmed dates and times:

Date Time
October 23rd (Xbox One Only) 4PM – 8PM (PST)

7PM – 11PM (EST)
