Elden Ring: different sessions

Bandai Namco hopes to use the test as a pre-verification test prior to the commercial version of the test. The company intends to listen to feedback from the players who take part in the tests to make the game better.

Upon reaching the site, players will need to click on the orange “Sign Up” button. The player will be redirected to a page where the different platforms available for the tests are listed. The player needs to select one of the platforms to continue. Now, the player will need to enter their E-mail ID twice. The Closed Network Test code will be sent to that E-mail. They will also need to check whether the provided E-mail address actually received the E-mails.
