There’ll be no inviting buddies this time around.
Ubisoft has announced a PC-only technical test for this weekend as a dry run for the platform’s open beta.
“Our goal with this Technical Test is to assess a certain amount of fixes we implemented based on your feedback following the Private Beta,” the dev said in a Reddit post. “This will help ensure that your Open Beta experience will be as smooth as possible.”
It won’t be open to everyone, but players who have been selected will be receiving email invites today. Ubisoft has stressed that pre-order customers are not guaranteed to get in, as the invites are being “distributed at random to ensure a wide range of participants.”
The content available will be almost the same as the private beta, with the notable absence of Conflict, Endgame, and Photo Mode. And unlike the last beta, players won’t be able to invite their friends to join them.
The technical test kicks off on Thursday, February 21, and wraps up on Friday, February 22. The exact times have yet to be shared, but participants will no doubt receive further details in their invites.
The upcoming open beta will be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One between Friday, March 1 and Monday, March 4.
Hopefully, the frequent crashes won’t plague the experience this time around.
