How To Get Into Concord’s Beta Test

Players who pre-order Concord will be able to get in on the Early Access test. Additionally, they will receive five codes to access the test. One of these codes will be for you to access the test, while the rest of them can be distributed to your friends so they can get a taste of the game for free.

Concord’s Open Beta Test can be accessed by all players, whether they’re playing on the PS5 or on PC. The Open Beta Test is free, meaning that you don’t need to buy the game in order to participate.

If you find yourself loving the game after the Beta Tests are complete, you don’t need to wait for the game’s official launch on 23 August, 2024. If you pre-order the Deluxe Edition, you’ll gain access to Concorde three days before its official release.
