NISA has announced that they will be holding a beta for the online functions of their upcoming RPG Grand Kingdom. The company is hosting an open beta to test the servers and online war portion of the game and is open to anyone who signs up. Additionally, you will be able to keep the save file from the beta on your PlayStation 4, however, there is no cross-save functionality so you can’t use the beta save for the PlayStation Vita version.
Want more information? NISA answers how to sign up:
When is the beta?
We’ll start sending out codes to download the beta on May 3 and it will last for one week. The servers will be shutting down in the wee hours of the morning on May 10.
Well, how do I participate and get one of those codes?
Go to the Grand Kingdom website and fill in the beta application form. It’s easy-peasy, dood.
If Grand Kingdom is coming out on PS4 and PS Vita, can I join the beta on either system?
While the game will be cross-platform, we’ll be running the beta for Grand Kingdom exclusively on PS4.
How much of the game can I access?
You’ll be able to use four classes from the game — Fighter, Hunter, Witch, Medic — to complete two quests from the single-player campaign, which will get you used to playing. You will also be able to participate in three battles in the online war each day.
What’s this “online war” you keep mentioning?
It’s a pretty big component of the game in which you choose a nation to support, then take all the steps necessary to lead them to greatness!
Everything from voting on battle strategies and developing defenses and weaponry to jumping into the nitty-gritty of laying waste to an enemy squad. There’s really too much to it to describe it all here, but we’ll have more info on our official website at the start of the beta.
Do I get to keep my save file for the full game?
You sure do, dood! You’ll be able to keep your squad members and sweet, sweet mercenary money in the full release, but the online war scenario will be completely reset.
Will you be signing up for the beta? Let us know in the comments below.
