At the Evolution Championship Series (EVO) in Las Vegas Square Enix announced that registration for the Dissidia Final Fantasy Closed Beta is now open to select PlayStation 4 players. Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is the latest version of the Final Fantasy fighting game which gives you three characters from various Final Fantasy games to use in combat against other players. I went hands on with it in a 3-on-3 match at E3, which led to some hilariously disastrous results for my team of three tanks. The game lets you play as famous FF protagonists Tidus, Cloud, Squall, Vaan, and even some of your favorite villains, i.e. Sephiroth and Ultimecia.
But if you want the official Closed Beta description, here you are:
This summer, the Closed Beta will let fighting game fans get hands-on with the team-based brawler as they play the roles of legendary heroes and villains from the FINAL FANTASY franchise, take part in epic 3 vs. 3 battles across iconic arenas and invoke the help of classic summons including Ifrit, Shiva and Odin.
Fans can sign up for a chance to participate in the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Closed Beta test here. Those who are chosen will receive an e-mail with the registration code and more information on how to opt into the Closed Beta.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will be available for the PlayStation 4 series of systems in early 2018.
