The weekend is the first of two beta sessions, with this one being exclusive to PlayStation 4 users.
It's unclear what players will be able to access during the beta, but we're certain they'll be able to play the 2v2 Gunfight mode and the 6v6 standard multiplayer more.
PS4 owners: If you're a PS4 owner, regardless of whether or not you pre-ordered the game, you can resume and continue to play the Open Beta free for the entire Weekend 2 period (both the Early Access and Open periods).
