Square Enix will launch the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT open beta in January to give fans of the fighting franchise a good look at the PlayStation 4 exclusive before it is launched on Jan. 30, 2018.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is fast approaching, and while waiting, gamers might want to check out the newly released official story trailer for the title.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Open Beta In January
Square Enix revealed plans for a Dissidia Final Fantasy NT open beta that will launch in mid-January for North America and Europe and will last from December to January in Japan.
The Japanese open beta will include a preview of the Class Match, Rush Battle, and Story modes of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. In Class Match, players can get into three-on-three battles against other players online, with the rest of their team made up of two friends or two AI-controlled characters. Rush Battle, meanwhile, will be a local version of Class Match, with players going up against teams made up purely of AI-controlled fighters. Lastly, in Story mode, players will be able to learn more about the lore surrounding the game through unlockable cut scenes, with more of the story to be unlocked by raising player levels.
The Dissidia Final Fantasy NT open beta will also allow players to customize the game's characters by changing skins, EX skills, and symbol chats.
These modes and features have not yet been confirmed for the North America and Europe open beta, but chances are that these will also be what will await players. In comparison, the closed beta that ran earlier this year only offered online matches and a single-player practice mode.
The Dissidia Final Fantasy NT open beta for North America and Europe will run from Jan. 12 to Jan. 21, with Square Enix promising to release more details as the date draws near.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Story Trailer Released
The launch of the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT open beta is less than a month away, but to help whet players' appetites for the fighting game, Square Enix released its official story trailer at the Jump Festa event in Tokyo.
The trailer reveals why the heroes and villains of the games in the Final Fantasy franchise were once again summoned to wage war against one another. The over three-minute video also features several intense gameplay clips and highlights new characters in the fighting game franchise such as Y'shtola from Final Fantasy XIV and Prince Noctis from Final Fantasy XV.
