The closed beta for Shadow Arena is hitting February 27 with sign ups available now.

The test will run until March 8 on Steam. If you’re unfamiliar with Shadow Arena, it’s a 40-player battle royale, but draws inspiration from the MOBA genre as well. You’ll be able to choose from nine playable characters in the beta. You’ll have to hunt monsters, grab loot, and upgrade gear.

Once a game within Black Desert, Shadow Arena has become a standalone title. The game is set to release in the first half of 2020 on PC, with consoles to follow at a later date. You can learn more here. And don’t forget to sign up for the beta if interested.
