Taste Test

About the TASTE TEST

Taste Test events are a little smaller in scale than our signature Black Betas, but the philosophy is much the same – invite 100+ passionate gamers to come and go hands-on with a highly anticipated game before release. There’s food, drinks and the opportunity to tell the wider world what you thought of the game!

Check out some of our most recent Taste Tests below.
