Fans of the upcoming crossover fighting game from Bandai Namco will be going live on console this week with an open beta to test the waters in preparation for when the game goes live next month.
Similar to Fallout 76 with their beta layout back in October/November last year, Jump Force‘s approaching beta will be set through a line of sessions as well. From January 18th to January 20th there will be four sessions that both players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will be able to participate in.
