Here’s How And When Aussies Can Get Into The One Punch Man Closed Beta

The Closed Beta for One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is upon us! Starting November 1st, fans can jump into a limited version of the game’s online mode ahead of its release (at some point) next year.

Publisher Bandai Namco recently tweeted from their EU account about entry into the Closed Beta, as well as the limited windows of time that participants will have access to it. Luckily for us Aussies, the codes needed to download the Closed Beta are compatible with our PSN/Xbox Live accounts, so I’ve listed the instructions to secure one below as well as doing the math to convert the play sessions into local times:

Will you be checking out the Closed Beta? For a refresher on what One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is about, take a look at the trailer below:

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
