Netmarble announced an alpha test for HypeSquad will be available through Steam from June 13 through June 20 and interested players can pre-register on the game’s official website.

In addition to experiencing never-before-seen “Special Event Modes”, players will receive a Ride Skin reward upon joining the alpha test. This special item will be given to all players who participated in the testing period which can be used upon the game’s official launch. The alpha test will be supported in 9 languages including English, Portuguese, French, German and Spanish and multiple servers are located around the world including North America, Korea, Singapore, Brazil and Germany.
