Blacklight: Retribution Closed Beta Dates Announced
Players anxious to get their hands on some fast-paced, action-packed combat will soon be granted access to Blacklight: Retribution Closed Beta. Today, Perfect World announced the dates and times of the first two phases of closed beta.
Beginning Thursday, October 27th at 2PM Pacific Time, Blacklight: Retribution will enter Phase 1 of closed beta. The goal of this initial phase is to "test server architecture, so restarts should be expected (but hopefully minimal). Phase 1 will conclude on October 30th at 7PM Pacific. Players that are already registered will be selected for this test and receive an email with instructions the week of the test.
If you haven't yet registered for closed beta, it's not too late. Head on over the Perfect World website and create an account. Following an account creation, you must wait until you receive an email which says you were granted access to Closed Beta.
Perfect World did note, "Not all players can be let into each phase. We want to open the flood gates slowly, so we can monitor and fix any issues that arise. But with each coming phase, we will let more players in."
Shortly after, Blacklight: Retribution will enter Phase 2 beginning on Thursday, November 10th at 2PM Pacific Time.
"In order to ensure stability however, we will follow the same process of letting in people in small amounts. So keep checking your email to see if you have received access." Phase 2 will end on Sunday, November 13th at 7PM Pacific, ending Phase 2.
