February 14, 2020: Bleeding Edge closed beta is now live. The file you downloaded from Xbox Game Pass or by preordering should now work.
Bleeding Edge is an upcoming melee multiplayer game from Ninja Theory. While the majority of the team is working on Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, a small team in the studio is developing this title. It looks like a lot of fun and if you're curious about the game, you can participate in the beta taking place soon.
You can pre-load the beta client if you've preordered the game or are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber. On Xbox One, it should be in your "Ready to install" section of "My games & apps." Ninja Theory also revealed how to access it on Steam.
Pre-install for the Closed Beta is now available on Xbox One, Windows 10, Steam, and Xbox Game Pass!— Bleeding Edge (@BleedingEdgeNT) February 11, 2020

In Windows Central's preview, Jez Corden wrote, "Even though Bleeding Edge will launch as a 4v4 multiplayer-only experience, the potential is clear for a broader push into Overwatch-like territory with a wider expanse of story building, merchandising, and beyond. Of course, that all depends on how popular, and well, fun the game is when it launches. Judging from what I've played so far, I'm optimistic that it will be."
Are you excited for Bleeding Edge? Will you check it out? Let us know. As with every Xbox Game Studios' title, it'll be part of Xbox Game Pass at launch.
