    So I want to play beta phase 4 as early as possible like I'm sure everyone else here, but I was wondering what time it actually starts?

    I wasn't in phase 3 and I don't have a key, so I have to wait for the website to let me sign up and for me it is Saturday 8-17-13. But I was wondering if it is exactly on that day that I can sign up and play. As in 12:00:01 seconds in the A.M. or will it just be a vague time somewhere around the morning. (Maybe depending on the server location?)

    Will it take into account different time zones, or will all servers be opened at 8-17-2013 at 12:01am in Japan (which is 8-16-2013 at 8am in California.)

    Sorry for the confusing writing and thank you in advance for your feedback.

    It usually started at 2:00am PST; which was around 5-6am EST... I was never online as soon as the servers went up; so take that as a rough estimate. But I am pretty sure they opened PST at 2am.

    Yeah I don't think they'll change the start time from previous phases. All I know is for me it's 10am (GMT+1), so a handy enough time. But it all balances out since later in the beta I'll miss out on the last few hours (unless I don't sleep :p).

    5am EST is when they have been starting previously. It's a fairly safe bet.

    One does not sleep whilst BETA is active. :)
    Marathon it, stock up on Caffeine induced products, have an onsuite where the TV is in sight of the toilet seat. All bases covered.

    Check 1:27. That's how you do it (expect it's not Battlefield). X)

    so..i was in Phase 3,how exactly will Phase 4 happen?

    Do I need to sign up somewhere again? or will it appear on PSN like a normal demo?



    EDIT:
    Oh and is 4 days 16 minutes etc when the beta will be available to download?(because if so,it means i will lose some time downloading it..bah)

    Okay nevermind,seems people are like me and waiting for Square to send them an email

    Aug 16 (2am PDT/9am GMT): OBT starts for anyone who was in Phase 3
    Aug 17 (2am PDT/9am GMT): OBT starts for everyone else, application site re-opened

    The times are speculation based on what they did in Phase 3. All of their tests started and ended at 2am PDT. Dates are from officially released info.
