The Shonen anime packed fighter Jump Force is going to have an open beta, and no pre-order or purchase is required. Lasting from January 18th – January 20th, there will be blocks of time for you to jump into the online version of the game. You will be able to pick from 17 different fighters and play on five different stages. The online lobby will have six avatars for you to try.
The times will last for three hours each, so pull out your calendar. On Friday the 18th, they will have a session from 4:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. PST and another from 9:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m. PST. Saturday the 19th has one session from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 am PST. On Sunday, you can play from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. PST.
You can pre-load the beta starting January 17th. If you are on the fence or you are not sure about fighting games in general, this is a great chance to give Jump Force a try before its February 15th release date.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
