The final  closed beta for Shadow Arena will hit Aprils 17 worldwide.

The Black Desert based arena fighter will be available for the North American, European, and Asian servers from Friday, April 17 to Sunday, April 19. New features for this phase of beta testing include an improved matching system and character balance, as well as normal and AI match modes.

According to the accompanying press release, Normal match mode is not counted toward a player’s ranking. This mode is for players who want to play the game casually without the pressure of competition. The AI mode is for newer players to learn and practice while fighting against AI enemies. Experienced players can also use AI mode to practice and warm up.

Additionally, a special package of in-game items will be rewarded to people who sign up for the premium beta key. The package includes the highest grade sealed items, a matchlock, and Red Dragon Offering. Players who signed up for previous beta phases will receive a premium beta key and the exclusive in-game rewards.

You can sign up for the beta here.
