Pearl Abyss announced that its action battle royale Shadow Arena has entered its final phase of Beta testing today at 4PM (KST). Players across the globe can now experience the improved gameplay of Shadow Arena on Steam until April 20.
In Shadow Arena, 40 Heroes battle against each other in fierce, action-packed showdowns to become the final survivor. New content, such as a more sophisticated matching system, has been introduced to the final Beta to provide a higher level of gameplay for global players.
The new AI Matches mode allows a maximum of 5 players to fight as allies against 40 AI opponents. A Normal Match mode, where the game’s results are not recorded, is also available along with other additions including a new giant monster the Stoneback Crabs, and a Blessed Area, which will greatly increase a Hero’s HP regeneration.
Heroes who have signed up for a Beta key can receive a Premium Beta Key that will give them special in-game rewards. These rewards are the highest grade sealed items, such as the Matchlock and Red Dragon’s Offering. Heroes can play Shadow Arena more strategically with these sealed items.
As the current test is being conducted as the “final” Beta, Pearl Abyss is preparing to release the early access of Shadow Arena soon.
