Get an early taste of NIS America’s latest role-playing epic
Hey there, doods! We’re gearing up for Grand Kingdom to hit the PS4 and PS Vita this June, and we want you to get in on the excitement! Our online beta will be starting in two weeks, and we’re hoping to get a bunch of you playing the game’s online war portion to ensure the full release is smoother than a Prinny’s bottom! As an added benefit for participating, you’ll even get to keep your save data for the full release.
Now, I’m sure you’ve got questions, and I’ve got answers!
When is the beta?
We’ll start sending out codes to download the beta on 3rd May and it will last for one week. The servers will be shutting down in the wee hours of the morning on 10th May.
Well, how do I participate and get one of those codes?
Go to the Grand Kingdom website and fill in the beta application form. It’s easy-peasy, dood.
If Grand Kingdom is coming out on PS4 and PS Vita, can I join the beta on either system?
While the game will be cross-platform, we’ll be running the beta for Grand Kingdom exclusively on the PS4.
How much of the game can I access?
You’ll be able to use four classes (Fighter, Hunter, Witch, Medic) from the game to complete two quests from the single-player campaign which will get you used to playing, and will be able to participate in three battles in the online war each day.
What’s this ‘online war’ you keep mentioning?
It’s a pretty big component of the game in which you choose a nation to support, then take all the steps necessary to lead them to greatness! Everything from voting on battle strategies and developing defences and weaponry to jumping into the nitty-gritty of laying waste to an enemy squad. There’s really too much to it to describe it all here, but we’ll have more info on our official website at the start of the beta.
Do I get to keep my save file for the full game?
You sure do, dood! You’ll be able to keep your squad members and sweet, sweet mercenary money in the full release, but the online war scenario will be completely reset.
Awesome! So I can use it on the PS Vita?
Sorry, dood. In the full release, there’s cross-play for the online war, but there is no cross-save functionality.
So, what do I do now then?
Well, my best answer would be get yourself on the beta list right away, so go sign up right now, and don’t forget to share the beta with your friends! You’ll want as many mercenary captains supporting your chosen nation as possible to win the war when the beta starts 3rd May. We’ll see you online soon, dood!
