Beta testing is the next phase of software testing following alpha testing. Registration for this phase opened on November 4th, 2013 on the official website. Closed Beta ended in June 2014; Open Beta ended in October 2014 with the live launch of the game, though all progress from the Open Beta was preserved. The Closed Beta phase of the iOS port began on April 1st, 2015.
Beta began as a family-and-friends testing period only, but later launched into a bigger Closed Beta phase in November 2013. Only selected users who registered for access stood a chance of being accepted into one of the testing periods between November 2013 and June 2014. Everyone ultimately got access starting in June when the game went into Open Beta.
The same is true for the iOS port ; it began as a family-and-friends testing phase but later signups were opened and users were selected.
- Friends and Family testers (family members of developers/employees, LEGO employees)
- Press (websites covering the game in Beta and reviewing it)
