In Grand Kingdom, players will be able to participate in an online war. That means choosing one of four nations to side with, then helping your nation hopefully win by voting on strategies and taking part in battles. To help prepare for the game’s official launch, NIS America is going to hold a Grand Kingdom closed beta from May 3-10, 2016 on the PlayStation 4.
To register, people must go to the Grand Kingdom official website and provide their first and last name, say whether they’re in North America or Europe, and provide an email address. After confirming your email, you’ll be set and might find a code in your inbox on May 3, 2016.
The Grand Kingdom closed beta will only be playable on the PlayStation 4, though the full game and its online war mode will be available on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita and offer cross-platform play. You’ll be able to use the Fighter, Hunter, Medic, and Witch in two solo campaign quests total and three online war daily battles.
Your Grand Kingdom closed beta save file will also work with the full game, letting you keep the mercenary money and squad members you’re able to earn and work with. However, all progress made in the beta’s online war will be wiped out after the full game is released, so it isn’t like one of the four nations will have an edge over the other’s on launch day.
Grand Kingdom will come to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on June 17, 2016 in Europe. North America will get the game a few days later on June 21, 2016.
