At the bottom of the Public Test website, players will find a “Download Now” button. Upon clicking this button, they will begin downloading the APK for the Public Test server. Afterwards, they must simply install that APK onto their mobile device and then the Public Test will become playable. This will work even if the player hasn’t downloaded the main game from their app store.

Along with getting early access to new characters and features, there are extra perks that playtesters can enjoy through the Public Test. By completing surveys after new Public Test updates, participants will receive codes that they can then use to obtain new items in the main game.
