Full Breakdown and Schedule for #BBTAG PSN Open Beta

Today, ArcSystemWorks dropped an important update on the status of the open beta for BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle.

For those planning to preorder the game on the Playstation 4, they have unfortunately been delayed until May 9th (next Wednesday). However, that's hardly an inconvenience, because once pre-orders become available and you reserve your copy, you'll be given access to the beta right away, as it is scheduled to start next Wednesday. Should you opt not to pre-order your copy, however, you will not be able to access the beta until halfway through its time period...in other words, May 12th.

Included with the open beta is the complete base roster of twenty characters, along with the following modes: Casual Lobby, Tactics Mode (Tutorial and Practice only), versus the CPU, and multiplayer mode. Note that the multiplayer mode is available only to players who pre-order the game.

Additionally, an offline-only demo will be available to players beginning May 14th, but it's important to note that only four characters will be available to players who have not pre-ordered the beta, whereas the whole roster will be accessible to those who have.

While there are currently no plans to host betas for the Nintendo Switch and PC versions of Cross Tag Battle, ArcSystem did make a follow-up post stating: "Switch information to follow." We'll be watching carefully to see what changes occur, but in the meantime, you can get the complete breakdown on the demo at their website.

If you've already placed your pre-order via retailer, you will still gain access to the open beta for Cross Tag Battle, according to ArcSystem. See below for a pair of follow-up posts confirming this as well as information about the Switch version.

The game is set to release in Japan on May 31st and North America on June 5th. For further updates on BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, follow @ArcSystemWorksU and their website.
