Black Beacon (黑色信标) is a surprising new Chinese action Gacha game.

Most Anime RPGs have a tendency to follow the “Genshin formula,” and opt for a bright, vibrant game. Black Beacon on the other hand takes the opposite approach, and provides players a dark, grim world filled with hopelessness. A nice change of pace.

It features a top-down isometric perspective, similar to Lost Ark or Path of Exile. This isn’t typical, as most Gacha games with action combat go the Punishing Gray Raven route.

It is unconfirmed whether it’ll be open-world or not unfortunately. What we do know is that they not only have pre-registrations open and available, but they’re also holding a Beta test very soon, which you can sign up for by clicking the button below!
