Over the weekend, Bandai Namco hosted an open beta test for its anime brawler, Jump Force. Unfortunately, many players reported connectivity problems and other issues. In fact, it became so bad that the publisher has pulled the latter two gameplay sessions entirely.
Split across four three-hour sessions, the beta allowed players to take part in online matches with a wide selection of characters, but networking problems plagued the test, forcing Bamco to take action. Although the third and fourth sessions were cancelled, the publisher has pledged to reschedule them once it has a more stable online solution in place. It has yet to announce new dates or times, but we'll keep you posted on any developments on this.
We suppose the bright side of all this is that this is happening during a beta test, not the full release. Ultimately, this type of thing is precisely what online betas are for, so even though it's frustrating now, it should result in a better game in the end.
