To play the The First Descendant beta on PC, head to the game’s official Steam page and click on ‘Play Now’ when the beta goes live on May 25, 2024. Doing so now will simply show an error.

There seems to be an error with the beta sign-up button at the moment, as it shows the option to download the game. Since the beta is not currently live, though, you will not actually be able to download the game just yet.
