Early this morning the Rockman X DiVE development team shared a message via the Official Facebook Page to explain that the number of registrations for the Close Beta Test exceed their expectations and, because of that, some adjustments were necessary. A few hours later they shared a new message about when the CBT will actually start. More after the break!
ROCKMAN X DiVE - Signal from Deep Log
Thanks again for your support to CAPCOM.
The number of participants has gone beyond our expectation,henceforth, the adjustments
of the server and increase of contents will be implmented to the CBT event for more players to join.
We're sorry to modify the CBT date as follows
1. CBT date : from Sept. 12th (Thur.)10:00 to Sept. 16th (Mon.)10:00 (GMT+8)
2. CBT content: Add challenge mission system, increase weapon types
Another 5000 participants will be added to the CBT event. (System will be closed as soon as the number is reached)
Just hold the last chance to join the CBT event.
We're sincerely apologized for the inconvenienc of adjustments of the date(Sept.12),but we also
hope your paticipation will help us to perfect the ROCKMAN X DiVE in every possible way.
By the look of things, extending the registration window and removing the 30, 000 player cap caused a big wave of new registrations. That's something the development team weren't expecting or even ready to handle when the Close Beta was supposed to launch next week. To cope with this wave of unexpected registrations, the Close Beta Test is going to be delayed from September 6th to September 12th and the servers will be adjusted to handle the traffic.
The positive news about this debacle is the CBT will have an additional challenge mission system, new weapon types and they will allow more registrations, up to 5,000 players. If you didn't register previously, you can do it from here.
Furthermore, the development team has yet to communicate how the Closed Beta is going to be delivered to players who registered and what specs are necessary to run it on Android phones and tablets.
Stay tuned for more news as we approach the release of the Rockman X DiVE Closed Beta Test.
