Blade & Soul’s first closed beta weekend starts on October 29th (at 10am PDT) and lasts until November 2nd. That’s a day earlier than previously announced. In order to gee you up for this launch, NCSoft has released a new “When Heroes Rise” trailer, as you can watch above.
The full closed beta schedule for the MMORPG has also been revealed:
- Closed Beta 1: Oct 29–Nov 2
- Closed Beta 2: Nov 13–16
- Closed Beta 3: Nov 24–30
- Closed Beta 4: Dec 11–14
- Closed Beta 5: Dec 18–21
You’ll have instant access to all of these closed beta weekends if you’re already purchased a Founder’s Pack – you won’t even need to redeem a key. However, if you’ve only signed up via the newsletter for a chance to partake in the closed beta weekend then you’ll need to look out for an invite in your inbox.
“During the closed betas we really need your feedback, and ask that you take some time to either answer questions through the in-game survey system (which also gives out some nice rewards!) or via our forums,” NCSoft writes.
