Today Sega announced the open beta dates of its upcoming PS4-exclusive free to play mecha game Border Break.

Players will 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.

The client will be available for pre-download on the Japanese PlayStation Network starting on February 1st.

Border Break is a 10 vs. 10 online third-person shooter based on a popular arcade game released in Japan in 2009. It will also include a full-fledged single-player story campaign and plenty of online modes. While it’s free to play, Sega promised that there won’t be limiting mechanics like stamina, and players will be able to enjoy the game 24/7.

It’s worth mentioning that data from the open beta won’t transfer to the official services when it’ll launch later this year.

In order to 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.

In the meanwhile, you can check out a few new screenshots of the beta client below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the first announcement trailer.

Giuseppe Nelva :Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
