How to sign up for 2XKO alpha lab playtest for PC, PS5, and Xbox

Fans of League of Legends and fighting games alike will soon be able to take part in the 2XKO alpha lab playtest; here’s how anyone can sign up for it and who is eligible to take part.

While League of Legends’ visibility is in decline, Riot Games’ various projects are still doing well. Valorant has cemented itself as one of the world’s top shooters. Arcane’s final season is hotly anticipated and might see the show eclipse the popularity of its source material. Finally, fans are eagerly awaiting Riot Games’ next big release, 2XKO

2XKO is a two-on-two tag-based fighting game featuring League of Legends champions. So far, six champions have been announced, including Darius, Yasuo, Ahri, and the recently announced Braum. Fans won’t have to wait much longer to try the game at home though, as the 2XKO “alpha lab playtest” will soon happen. 

How to sign up for the 2XKO playtest

Players interested in checking out the new fighting game from Riot can visit the 2XKO alpha lab playtest and sign up. 

The 2XKO playtest will be held on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and Windows PC. Players who want to test the game can register at the official website

Interested fans must have an existing Riot Account to participate in the playtest. Anyone who has played League of Legends, Valorant, or Teamfight Tactics should already have one.

After signing up, players are also required to complete a survey. Once completed, players have a chance to receive an invite to the playtest. The playtest has limited slots, so there is no guaranteed 2XKO playtest access as of now. Riot’s methodology for selecting participants is unclear, but it will likely boil down to a lottery system. It’s also unclear if 2XKO will have an invite system, similar to what was seen with Valorant’s console playtest.

2XKO alpha playtest start and end dates

The 2XKO alpha lab playtest will be held on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC from August 8 to August 19, 2024.

The playtest will be available to players from specific regions. Sign-ups for the 2XKO alpha lab playtest is only available to players from the USA, Canada, UK, France, Brazil, Mexico, and Japan. There is no word on whether other regions will get the chance to experience it. 

As with any playtest, the 2XKO playtest seeks player feedback and input on almost everything. The developers are looking to receive reactions from players and may change the game based on those recommendations. Riot Games have yet to announce a release date for 2XKO but it will reportedly be coming out in early 2025.
