Can players from Turkey join in this Closed Beta?
Unfortunately, no. There is no Nintendo eShop in this region, therefore we are unable to provide a redemption code.
Are there any exclusives for beta players when the game launches?
All players who have participated in either of our Closed Beta tests will receive an exclusive skin for free when the game launches on Nintendo Switch. (this skin will not be provided to accounts on Android or iOS)
Will my account in the beta be the same when the game launches?
No, all progress will be wiped after the Closed Beta test.
What will be unlocked during this Closed Beta?
We will have a weekly rotation of 5-10 free heroes to be played during the test. Select skins will also be available for Vouchers, a premium currency. Since real-money purchases are locked for this beta, we will have promo code giveaways during the beta for players to unlock Skins and help us to test the purchasing functions.
Do I have to buy new heroes in the Closed Beta?
Yes, but no real money purchases are required. All Heroes will be available using Gold, which is earned by playing the game. All Heroes will be heavily discounted for the beta. Players will be able to unlock at least one hero by winning just one match.
