If you're eager to get your hands on Jump Force, Bandai Namco's crossover fighting game centering around licenses from Japan's Shonen Jump magazine, you won't have to wait too long. After a private beta late last year, the game will be getting a public beta later this month on January 18 through January 20.

The beta is a stress test, so it will only be open during certain times.

  • January 20 from 12:00 p.m. PT/3:00 p.m. ET to 3:00 p.m. PT/6:00 p.m. ET

There will also be 17 characters usable during the beta on five different stages.
