Could be open or closed. I was wondering since I was playing the second open beta of GBFVSR. I also remember doing the network tests for ARMS and Dark Souls on the Switch. I've never been involved in a closed beta before. How about you guys? Ever done one?

The two big ones I participated in were early alphas for two Ubisoft games: Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Riders Republic. Both were in pretty early states and neither had release dates. Heck, I don't think Riders Republic had been announced externally at the time. They were early enough in the development pipeline that voice acting wasn't even finalized, with lots of dialogue relying on placeholder text-to-speech. I had to sign NDAs to play both and a slew of personal information was splattered across the screen at any given time so screenshots could be traced back to me if I leaked any.

Felt kind of cool to see the work in progress.
