According to the listing, anyone who pre-orders the game or plays via Xbox Game Pass in the first week of launch (i.e. by the end of March 2020) will get the exclusive Punk Pack to use in game. This gives players exclusive fighter skins – Punk Rock Nidhoggr, Butterpunk Buttercup and Outrider ZeroCool. Players will also get the Rioter's Hoverboard, a "Make Your Mark" in-game sticker pack and three bonus taunts.
More importantly, players in Game Pass or who pre-order will have access to the game's two Closed Betas – one beginning on February 14th and one starting on March 13th.
The Bleeding Edge Closed Beta is finally upon us and with it comes some new and exciting changes which we can't wait for you all to try out. Not only have we continued to fix bugs and improve Bleeding Edge to ensure it's the best game it can be, we've used the time between the last technical alpha play test and now to listen to your feedback and add new features.
Streaming and capturing
Yes! we know how eager the community has been to finally start showing off their Bleeding Edge matches to the rest of the world and we're happy to let you know that the Bleeding Edge Closed Beta can be streamed over your favourite live streaming platforms.
When we introduced the watchzone in the technical alpha, we were overwhelmed at the positive response we received from our community. We've continued to tweak this feature with improved UI and functionality and look forward to watching your matches live from the Watchzone.
Not only does Bleeding Edge sport a snazzy new menu screen, we've also added new accessibility options so our players can customise their experience for maximum comfort and usability. Accessibility is very important to us and we will continue to improve this aspect of Bleeding Edge leading up to and post launch.
We’ve overhauled the end game rewards screen to help players better understand when and how they earn Mods, Mod Parts and Credits. Highlights and Stats are still present and have their own tabs in the end game roundup. This is still a work-in-progress, so expect further improvements down the line!
During the technical alpha we received important feedback from our players regarding their first time experience with Bleeding Edge, this led us to design a new basic tutorial and help new players learn how to play Bleeding Edge.
We continued to use what we learned from this feedback and have now implemented an Advanced Tutorial which will help both veteran and first time players learn more about the finer aspects of Bleeding Edge combat.
This feature is still a work in progress and we will continue to fine tune it over time.
We know how much you enjoy the personality of each Bleeding Edge fighter and we want you to have even more options on how to personalise your fighters, within the workshop you'll now find the option to unlock and select different emotes for each fighter.
We have more options available than ever before to help our players travel in style in Bleeding Edge.
From the workshop you'll find new:
The smallest changes to combat can have the biggest impact for Bleeding Edge and this is especially true of our new parry system. Parry costs no stamina and is activated by pushing the evade button without directional input. The window for a successful parry is just a few frames before being hit, but if you pull it off you’ll stagger the enemy, giving you frame advantage for counter attacks, or enough time to make an escape. Right now all Fighters except Makutu can parry – we’ll be sorting out our antipodean buddy in an upcoming patch!
Thank you, to everyone who participated in the technical alpha, answered our many surveys and provided us with the feedback which made Bleeding Edge the game it is now.
Thank you, to everyone who pre-ordered or pre-purchased Bleeding Edge, your support is invaluable and has shown us how passionate the Bleeding Edge community is.
Thank you, to everyone who will be joining us for our first Closed Beta on Friday the 14th of February, we can't wait to watch your matches and cheer you on as you play Bleeding Edge!
