Phantasy Star Online 2's open beta test will be preceded by a "pre-open beta," producer Satoshi Sakaii revealed today at the game's official site. The test is being conducted to make sure the main open beta test does not have any issues.
The pre-open test will be held in the latter half of June. To take part, just register for the open beta when registration opens up tomorrow (5/23). Those who register for the open beta will automatically be placed in the pre-open beta.
