Balling On A Budget: The Best Betas YOU Can Play After E3 2016


We know you’ve been reading these articles all week. Your timeline is flooded with games you need on your shelf. But, the release date is how far? The price is how much? How much hardware am I going to have to buy to even play this game?!

Don’t worry: We got you. We here at FanBros know the value of a dollar and the benefits of having a good time for the low. So, we’re going to introduce to you the best betas coming out of E3. Because those other websites are too stingy with that free info.

Ubisoft tends to make you jump through hoops to get into a Beta by supporting their Youtube pages, etc. But, in all honesty: it’s kinda worth it. To try large betas of AAA games is rare. If you get to play a dope game for free in the comfort of your own home, you take it.
