5 Huge Video Game Beta Tests That You Don't Want to Miss

1 of 6

I enjoy beta testing games, and I'm always on the lookout for new beta testing opportunities. Beta testing allows you to get a small preview of the game and provide important feedback to the developers.

So here are five of some of the biggest beta testing opportunities that you don't want to miss.

1. For Honor

Play as a Viking, Samurai, or Knight in Ubisoft's upcoming game For Honor, which will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 14, 2017.

The three factions are warring against each other. Prepare to storm castles and fortresses, and fight on the battlefield using fast-paced melee combat. The game will have a story campaign as well as multiplayer game modes. 

Register on the For Honor website for a chance of alpha and beta access to the game on any of the three platforms. You can also have a chance to win special rewards, such as gear, digital content, custom consoles, and more.

2. World of Warcraft: Legion

World of Warcraft: Legion is the sixth expansion of the game after Warlords of Draenor. The expansion pack is expected to release on August 30, 2016 and is already in beta testing.

The expansion pack has plenty of new features, such as a a new continent to explore, called The Broken Isles. There's also a new class, called Demon Hunters -- who are disciples of Illidan Stormrage -- a level cap of 110, and more!

Opt in the World of Warcraft beta on your battle.net account for a chance to test the new expansion.

3. Titanfall 2

Titanfall 2 is an FPS mech game by Respawn Entertainment. The game will be released on October 28, 2016 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

There will be new features, such as a single player campaign mode, 6 new Titans, new Pilot abilities, and more. Players that sign up for the test will have a chance to earn in-game rewards and other exclusive offers.

The test will be for the multiplayer aspect for the game, and you can register for the beta test on the Titanfall website.

4. Battlefield 1

Battlefield 1 is an FPS game that takes place during World War 1. The game will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 21, 2016.

Players will be able to use a variety of new weapons and vehicles, and even ride horses. Maps will be massive and multiplayer will support up to 64 players.

The beta has been confirmed, however no other details about the beta have been released.

Sign up for Battlefield Insiders to stay up to date on the game and for a chance to test Battlefield 1.

5. GWENT

GWENT was originally a fast-paced card minigame in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It is now becoming its own standalone game that will be free to play on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Since GWENT is its own separate game, players do not need to be familiar with The Witcher universe to enjoy it.

The GWENT standalone will be more than the minigame in The Witcher 3. It will have features such as card voice-overs and a PVP mode.

The closed beta will start sometime in September 2016 for the Xbox One and PC. The beta PlayStation 4 will come at a later time.

For more information on the game and to register for the beta, check out the GWENT website.

So that's it, those were the beta testing opportunities you should not miss out on. From FPS, to trading card games, there is something for everyone. But as there are many more than just these out there; if you want to share any betas you know of, let me know in the comments below.
