For your convenience, questions and answers are divided into groups.
Q: What is the Closed Beta Test?
A: Closed Beta Test (CBT) is an event where select players can play an improved version of the game, reacquaint themselves with game mechanics and new or changed features, and give feedback. The milestone is important for The Farm 51 and MY.GAMES, and we will keep a close eye on monitoring your feedback and technical performance during the Test.
