Today Sega and Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan and Asia made the client of the upcoming mecha third-person-shooter Border Break available for pre-download on the Japanese PlayStation Store.
The beta will be accessible to anyone that downloads the client (even if we don’t know whether there will be IP blocks in place), and weighs 7.81 gigabytes. It can be downloaded here.
It’s worth mentioning that while the client is downloadable, the beta won’t open immediately. You be able to enjoy the game on February 3rd, February 4th, February 17th and February 18th. For all four days, the servers will remain open between 3:00 PM and 9:00 PM Japan time.
Border Break is a 10 vs. 10 online third-person shooter based on a popular arcade title released in Japan in 2009. It will include a full-fledged single-player story campaign and plenty of online modes. It’s free to play, but Sega promised that there won’t be limiting mechanics like stamina, and players will be able to enjoy the game to their hearts’ content.
In order to download the client play, you’ll need a Japanese PSN account. If you don’t know how to make one, you can find out how to, alongside with a few housekeeping tips, in our dedicated guide.
