If you're interested in taking part in this beta test, here are the details about how to do that.
To patch and get into the Beta server:

  • Open your LaunchPad.
  • In the top-left corner, click the 'Version' link which will open the 'Select Game Version' panel.
  • Choose 'Beta' in the drop-down menu, and then hit 'Apply' to begin patching.
  • Hit 'Play' once the patching is completed. 

Other Important Information:

  • Beta installs into a sub-folder that takes about the same space as your live game version.
  • Remember to set the 'Version' back to your regular setting to access your normal server.
  • Players who wish to take part in the beta with their Live characters can use the /beta command in game to copy characters to the Beta server. This process can take up to 1 hour to complete.
  • If your copied /beta character is not displaying on the Beta server, please create a level 1 character on Beta, log that character in, and then log it out. Copied character(s) should then appear on the character select screen.
  • The Beta server may not always be accessible as patching and Beta server maintenance will occur whenever it’s necessary.
  • The Beta server is wiped periodically, meaning Beta characters may be deleted with or without notice.
  • Anything you do on a Beta server is exclusive to the Beta server, and will not affect your live characters, except when Beta rewards are offered for you to /claim on live.

Please report any bugs or issues found by using use /feedback or /bug.

Thank you, and we will see you on Beta!
