An Alpha build of the game’s competitive ranked mode will be available to try out as well as exclusive rewards that come with signing up for the Beta. The reward track includes various weapon and character skins inspired by the factions which can be carried over to all phases of the game. Exclusive Twitch rewards are also up for grabs through watching partnered and categories streams during the Closed Beta period.
