Hardware: Rivals beta kicks off tomorrow

How to get involved with the trial run for the new PS4 vehicle combat game

Hi everyone! When we announced our new title recently, we mentioned that we were going to be running a beta in the near future. Well, I’m pleased to announce that the Hardware: Rivals beta will be launching exclusively to PS Plus subscribers worldwide tomorrow, 30th September.


In case you missed our previous post, Hardware: Rivals is an arcade-style vehicle combat game where you can get behind the wheel of a Tank or Fast Attack Vehicle, load up with devastating weapons and hunt down and destroy your opponents. Check out the trailer to get an idea of what you can expect in the beta.

Anyone with an active PlayStation Plus subscription is eligible to take part, and you can download the game from the PlayStation Plus section on the PlayStation Store.

During the beta we’ll be letting in batches of players on a first-come-first-served basis. When you launch the game, you’ll automatically be granted a beta key if one is available, and can start playing right away.

If all of the keys in the current batch have been taken, you’ll have to wait until a new batch is released. Don’t worry though, we’ll be releasing new keys regularly throughout the beta, so keep an eye on the official forums for updates.

Everyone who gets a beta key in-game will also able to invite a friend to join them, so think carefully about who you want backing you up!

Finally, anyone who participated in our closed beta already has a beta key waiting for them as a little thank you so come and check out what’s new.


The game is still deep in development so your participation and feedback is incredibly important to us. We have a dedicated beta forum where you can learn more about the game, leave feedback and get the latest updates from the dev team. If you have any suggestions, comments or find any issues, then please let us know!

In the meantime, thank you all for your continued interest and we hope to see you on the battlefield soon! Find out more here.
