We've been waiting on free-to-play shooter The First Descendant for a little while now, and although it had already been confirmed for a 2023 release, we were also supposed to be getting a beta on Xbox at some point in August.

Courtesy of Gamescom Opening Night Live 2023, we now know that the free open beta for The First Descendant will take place between September 19th and 25th for everyone who registers on the game's official website.

We'll throw some more details on the game below, along with the brand-new trailer up above.

"The First Descendant is a third-person looter shooter powered by Unreal Engine 5. Become a Descendant. Fight for the survival of humanity. Descendants have unique abilities to tackle both solo and co-op missions. Up to 4 players use varied mechanics to defeat giant bosses. BE THE FIRST DESCENDANT!"
