If you’re wanting in on the closed beta for the upcoming Gearbox title Battleborn’s closed technical tests, pay some attention. As we know, the first test will take place on the 29th of October. Those that participate in the closed beta will be under an NDA, which means no floods of streams, no chatter, or even very little about what the game itself featured.
Sign-ups are still open on Gearbox’s website. Those that participate will be under NDA, so there won’t be a flood of streams or chatter about what’s on display.
You’re fine with that? Cool! Then here’s what you need to do. Head over to the Gearbox Website and sign up for the beta if you already have an account. If you do not have a Shift Account? You will need to head over onto the Shift Account page to setup and get ready for the Beta. This beta includes tests for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One; this also includes what you’ll need if you plan on testing this rather colorful first-person multiplayer title that is set to play much like a rather colorful MOBA. So what exactly is this test for? To test the 25 playable characters for balancing, the servers, as well as to help polish the game before its launch on February 9th, 2016. So lets get down to what you’ll need to have in order to get rolling.
For PC Players:
- OS: Windows 7 x64-Bit or Later
- Processor: Intel Core2 Extreme CPU Q6850/ AMD A8-3870k (Quad Core CPU’s)
- Memory: 6 GB
- Hard Disk Space: 10 GB free
- Video Memory: 2 GB
- Video Card: AMD HD 7700/ NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or better, PhysX support
- Sound: DirectX 11 Compliant
For consoles? The email that we received stated that the game will require between 4 to 8 GBs free of Hard Disk Space. This doesn’t surprise us since the console game will probably be lacking in a PhysX like engine, which we assume Battleborn will use.
So will we be writing at all about our experience with the Battleborn beta? The answer is quite frankly no. Due to the way the NDA’s work we won’t be able to discuss it, take pictures or even show you anything in regards to it outside of what we get or do not get in press kits. If you would like to get in on the beta? We highly suggest it and if you are in the test and will be frequenting the closed beta forums for feedback.
