Rise Of Incarnates' Beta Is Now Live

by Kyle Hilliard on Aug 09, 2014 at 09:30 AM

Rise of Incarnates, Bandai Namco's two on two free-to-play melee shooter, has officially entered beta.

In the game, players play as fighters with recently awakened abilities allowing them to use the powers of gods and demons. Some characters transform into super-powered gods and demons, while others can summon gods and demons to help them fight.

The beta is open to everyone. All you will need to participate is a capable PC and a Steam account. The beta is currently live, and will be going until August 17, giving you a little over a week to dive in and try out some combat.

You can find details about the game's PC requirements, and a link to download the game's beta client by heading here. For more on Rise of Incarnates, you can find some of our hands-on impressions of the game by heading here.

Our Take
Rise of Incarnates' main competition are MOBAs, but it is mechanically a lot different from those games. It's a genre that really has no footing in North America – the two versus two online action game – but it is very popular in Japan. I'm curious to see how the game is received by players here in the United States.
