    Tidbits:

    - There will be two Closed Beta Tests.
    - The first CBT focuses on existing PSO2 players and will also be testing PSO2 data transfer, allowing you to use your PSO2 data.
    - The second CBT focuses on all people, including those who have not played PSO2 before. Everyone starts fresh and data from PSO2 and the first CBT will not be carried over.
    - If you are accepted into the first CBT, you are automatically enrolled into the second CBT as well.
    - The first CBT is scheduled for the weekend at the end of January 2021. See above for the schedule.
    - As of now, it has only been announced for PSO2 JP.
    - The CBT will take place on PC only. Specs can be found here.
    - The CBT is planned to accommodate 50,000 participants/lottery winners.
    - The highest amount of simultaneous connections during the first test on January 29th, 2021 was around 15,000.
    - Rewards for participation in the (first) CBT can be found here.
    - The purpose of the first CBT is verification of Game Data shared between PSO2 and PSO2 NGS, as well testing the basic game system, server load, AC and AC Scratch systems.
    - The purpose of the second CBT is to test the game with even more players, as well as to test corrections made following the first CBT.
    - Participants receive 20,000 AC to spend during the first CBT.
    - The level cap during the CBT is Level 15.
    - You can now equip multiple weapon camos for each weapon type!
    - Through glitching, a Bridge room that is yet to be revealed has been found underneath Central City. This can be seen here.
    - Skill trees for the six classes available during the first CBT can be found here.
    - Information on the Item Lab can be found here.
    - Information on the Skill Trees can be found here.

    Will they optimize this later or do I need to buy a 10core cpu for this?

    haven't seen anywhere on how to register for this, I've been assuming its an automatic enrollment to be picked for this. people are still sorta staying away from the survey though because they feels its a gaijin net. idk i've filled out past PSO2 surveys (balance, content etc) and I'm still playing

    EDIT: nevermind found the registration page

    There's a note in the requirements page saying that these requirements are only for the beta and that the final requirements will be different.

    what bothers me more is actually the memory requirement : 70 GB for current PSO2 + possibly re DL both versions for beta, so +100GB ??? Hope you have good SSDs/are willing to play on HDD lol

    The page only mentions that it's for 1080p high quality, but these requirements are only for the beta and they'll be different in the release version.

    Though, the GPU requirements, they're somewhat close to each of the consoles.
    Low - PS4
    Medium - PS4 Pro
    High - PS5

    I'm kind of surprised that the min reqs are Win8.1 and DX11. Steam has Win8.1 users at 1.4% of total playerbase, even less than Win7. I was expecting Win10 20H1 as minimum to be honest, which will be the "earliest" Win10 supported version at game's release.

    The only reason 8.1 is even listed is because it's still "officially supported" by Microsoft, and so it will be "officially supported" by Sega and other devs. NGS will probably run on 7 just fine, even... 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 are such similar platforms that what works on one should work on the others. The problem is Microsoft likes their planned obsolescence, and have no problem doing things such as refusing to backport DX12 to 7/8/8.1... except for random exceptions such as the DX12 World of Warcraft on 7 "initiative". Though apparently they also did this. Not that it matters, as DX12 is also super gross right now (just like every DX version at launch) and is not really worth supporting, whereas DX11 is fairly stable right now and is an effective baseline. Vista is also very similar to 7/8/8.1/10, and you could probably get anything that would run on 10 working in Vista with very minor tweaking. Basically, Microsoft has not made a new OS since 2006 (or earlier if you consider the betas); they've just made these big updates and charged you for them. For that reason, don't ever take OS requirements seriously, at least not for Windows (though MacOS is not any better).

    The actual game requirements are fairly low, and you can seemingly play the game on low(ish?) settings just fine with a midrange 2014/2015 build. We'll just have to see what retail looks like, I guess.

    To be fair, 10 was a free upgrade to anyone with a 7, 8, or 8.1 license and each version has remained free to those users since.
