BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Open Beta Will Launch March 2nd

Arc System Works will allow you to play the Open Beta for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle on PC and Xbox, totally free without subscriptions.

Arc System Works has announced the plans to hold an Open Beta for BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle on PC and Xbox consoles next month. Starting on March 2nd, all  Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows platform players will have a chance to take part in this cross-platform network beta, as they work out all of the kinks and iron out any issues players may have as they work to bring the title to these systems soon. As a bonus for Xbox players, you'll be able to take part without any kind of subscription or pass needed to play games online, as they're looking to get the widest pool of players with all sorts of connections possible to try it out over that weekend. We got the finer details below from the team.
