Jump Force, the 50th-anniversary celebration of Shonen Jump, is having an open beta this weekend on home consoles. The beta can be pre-loaded on the 17th and there will be four play sessions, each spanning three hours throughout the weekend. It’s unclear which characters will be featured, though there will be more than the closed beta, which was held several months ago.

“BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. will hold an open beta weekend for their upcoming arena fighting game, JUMP FORCE, January 18th through January 20th. The open beta will give players access to the game’s online versus mode where they can play as 17 characters from the final game, battle across five stages, and test out the online lobby using six preset avatars.

The JUMP FORCE open beta will be available for players to pre-load on their Xbox One and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment systems beginning January 17th.

The open beta will be available for four three-hour sessions on the following dates:
