Our teams at Amazon Games, Bandai Namco Online, and Bandai Namco Studios are excited to invite players on PC into the world of Regnas for a Closed Technical Test on November 8th at 2PM PT through November 10th at 2PM PT. The Closed Technical Test will let players in North America and Europe take a first look at BLUE PROTOCOL and explore a vibrant world full of diverse locations - from bustling cities to lush plains. Customize your character, experiment with unique classes, explore dungeons, fight world bosses, and start your quest to uncover the truth about your origins. Learn more about what to expect below.

The invite-only Closed Technical Test will be available in North America and Europe. To help us deliver the best possible experience at launch, we'll review participant feedback on their gameplay experience and focus on the unique server infrastructure we're working to build for our regions.

Sign-up on our tester sign-up page for a chance to participate! Chosen players will be notified on November 2 via email and then receive a code with instructions prior to the test. You can check our minimum specification here to see if your PC can run BLUE PROTOCOL.

By participating in the Closed Technical Test, you agree to keep it strictly confidential. You may not disclose, in any form, content from this playtest, including any information about the game, its features, announcement date, and live release plan. Any breach of confidentiality will be treated seriously. We hope you enjoy playing and appreciate your feedback.

Please do not engage in inappropriate in-game behavior during this test (spamming, cheating, exploiting glitches, etc). This test is for our server technology and does not represent the player experience we will offer at launch. If you witness any inappropriate in-game behavior, please notify us. We will test an updated version of the game at a later time.

Closed Technical Test Content Details

Server Infrastructure

The server infrastructure is our main testing focus. A single, shared Megaserver will seamlessly transition participants between their closest regional server and other regional servers when joining players from around the world. For example, a player that logs in from California will start on the US West server, but seamlessly switch to the EU Central server when joining a friend from London. The Megaserver will also prioritize matchmaking with players from the same region. If it can't find enough players, it'll search other regional servers to fill the party.

Game Overview

In the Closed Technical Test participants can experience many of the core mechanics, content, and activities available in BLUE PROTOCOL. Players will be able to complete the game’s first chapter with English text and VO. Localization is still under development. The five original classes will be available to try out, including the dual-axe-wielding Twin Striker and the element-manipulating Spell Weaver. Check out the Classes section of the Gameplay page for more details.

Your class is dependent on the weapons you choose, allowing you to adapt to challenges without changing your character. Switch between five different classes, each with unique skills that add damage multipliers, healing, and elemental effects that can be modified and leveled-up. Equip combinations of skills, modifiers, and summon Echoes—mystical creatures derived from the planet's power that bolster your abilities or aid you in battle—to create a custom hero fit for your play style.

Control how your character appears with custom facial features, hairstyles, outfits and accessories, plus unique gestures and dances to express their personality. Explore the vast world with a variety of mounts and craft custom weapons and gear for a truly unique experience.

Work together as a team with other players to tackle quests, fight boss battles, and engage in massive online raids against towering monsters. There are three options when entering any Dungeon, Raid or Mission - Solo, Matchmaking, and Recruiting Parties.

  • Solo lets players go at it alone.

  • Matchmaking randomly connects you with available players of a similar level.

  • Recruiting Parties lets you browse the Parties who are taking on the same challenge.

Have a group or find others you want to play with consistently? Join a Team. Teams are like guilds, with a roster of like-minded players who can easily play together. Teams have leaders, deputies, and assistants who help administrate the Team, and can rank-up. We’ll be opening a Discord for Technical Test participants to play together in the future.

Looking Ahead

Players that can't participate due to either the timing of the test or their region can look forward to future testing opportunities. Make sure to follow our social channels and website to stay up-to-date. Here’s where you can find us:
