Nexon has yet to announce the release date for The First Descendant, its latest cooperative looter shooter. Thankfully, players on consoles and PCs can get a taste of the game through the Open Beta test. Still, one question lingers among fans. Is it worth it to progress far in The First Descendant Open Beta, and will it carry over to the full game?
The First Descendant: Will the Open Beta Progress Be Reset?
Unfortunately, Nexon has confirmed that The First Descendant Open Beta progress will be reset for the full release and cannot be carried over. This information has been relayed through the game’s Steam News page as well on its official website’s Open Beta news page.
