Thanks for your interest in testing out our current and new games!
We Do Beta Releases for New Games!
Our objective when running beta tests is to stress test our game servers. Betas also allow developers and testers to evaluate the overall app experience. How we organize a beta, how long it lasts, and when and where we release the content varies by game. Each beta will have specific requirements about which players qualify as testers and how many testers will be needed to test the game.
We do not take special requests or volunteers to test our new games, but our games in beta will be available to the players within the chosen region. While it is safe to say that not every feature will make its way through beta, we aim to ensure that our players will have the chance to engage with many large-scale changes or new features before launch or release.
What to Expect
Please take into account that this is a stress test. You can expect uneven game performance and server instability, as well as some bugs and unfinished user interface (UI) elements. Restarts and downtime may occur without warning from time to time.
Game Demos and Beta Tests for Marvel Contest of Champions
Do you offer game demos?
We generally do not offer demos. We do limited staggered releases prior to an official launch to test the game.
Can I volunteer to be a beta tester?
It is important to note that we do not take special requests or volunteers for the beta program. Beta tests are “invite-only,” and we will notify eligible players on a case-by-case basis through in-game messages. Marvel Contest of Champions may also make announcements on the forums.
How are beta test participants selected?
We generally test specific features or changes to the game. Players who meet specific criteria in the game may be invited to participate in a beta. In the case of Marvel Contest of Champions, for example, we typically look at the prestige range or Champion roster of a player that would help us appropriately capture relevant feedback.
How will I know if I am eligible to participate in a beta?
You should receive an invite to the game.
What are the system requirements for each beta test?
If the game is already live, beta test requirements do not differ from the live game requirements. For new games, you should find the game requirements in the App Store or Google Play.
How long will a beta test last?
This will vary from game to game, depending on the beta.
What languages are supported in the beta?
Generally, the beta is only available in English. Game localization takes time and a lot of work, and we want to make sure that the published version of the game gets the full attention of the localization team when it is ready.
If I get invited to a beta test, can I stream or create content about the game?
Generally, yes. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact our support team, and we will do our best to answer your query.
What happens when the beta test ends?
The test server is scrubbed, and all of the beta accounts are wiped.
Will any progress I make during the beta test carry over to the live game?
No, beta tests and live games run on completely different servers. Accounts are non-transferable.
How long does it take for a game to be released after a beta test?
This will vary from game to game, as we will only release the game when it is ready.
