Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is indeed getting an open beta next month in North America and Europe, so you all can rest easy knowing you'll get a chance to play around in the game before the full launch at the end of the month.
Square Enix announced on Twitter the beta will run from January 12 to January 21. More details about the beta will be revealed closer to its launch, but you probably won't need to pre-register for this one, since it is an OPEN beta test.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is set to launch on January 30, 2018 for PlayStation 4. Earlier this year, Square Enix held a closed beta for the game for PS4 players who pre-registered for the test. It was then followed up by a somewhat lengthy survey in an attempt to gauge player reactions, as well as scope out their competition.
This announcement comes just on the heels of the announcement of several Japanese Open Beta periods which came over the weekend. In other Dissidia news, you can check out the full launch character roster which includes Final Fantasy XV protagonist Noctis Lucis Caelum, or sit down to watch the entire EVO 2017 panel if you missed it.
You can also check out our first impressions of the game based on hands on demos from PAX West. Specficially, we found that Dissidia "isn't Smash Bros, and it isn't Tekken. Dissidia is honestly more like, well, an RTS than a fighter. Which is why it makes perfect sense that Koei Tecmo are partially responsible for putting the whole thing together. Team Ninja also helped out in the development of the game, so the whole thing plays pretty darn smoothly."
So if you make it in for the open beta, we're pretty confident you'll enjoy it even if you don't quite understand how it works. It's alright, you'll get there.
