Android Open Beta Quick Start Guide

Thank you for joining us in the RIVALS 3.0 Open Beta, we are very pleased to let you try it out! Please follow the instructions below to get started.

Save your current progress:

To prevent losing your team, please register an account before downloading the Open Beta. Also, please write down your team id, team name and coach name, just in case something goes wrong and we need to restore your account. You can find your team id in the upper right hand side of the in-game settings screen. Follow the instructions below to save your progress:

  1. If you have not already saved your current game progress by making an account, please do this now by going into the management tab and tapping on the settings button.

  2. Please tap the MANAGE button under the “account” section within your settings window.

  3. If you have not done so already, create an account. There is no need to sign out if you are already signed in.

Important: Do not change your Google Advertiser ID while the regular game is uninstalled. It could cause account issues that can only be fixed if you have creatd a RIVALS account.

Delete the Rivals app from your phone.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to have both the Open Beta version and the “production” version from google play installed on your phone at the same time. If you have completed step one above, please delete the Rivals app from your phone. If you wish to play the “production” version of Rivals, simply uninstall the test version and download the regular Rivals production version from the google play store as you normally would. To resume playing with your team, make sure you are logged back into the game with your account. Please note that you might have to play through the tutorial with your team. After the tutorial is complete, everything will be as you had left it before the test.

Prepare your device for installing apps from “unknown sources“

By default, Android phones do not allow you to install apps that are not from the google play store. Since the testing version will be delivered from outside of the google play store, you will need to change some settings on your phone to allow the installation of apps from “unknown sources”. Please take note of the Android version installed on your phone, then follow the instructions here to enable the installation of apps from unknown locations for your Android version.

Download the RIVALS APK and install it on your phone.

  1. Please download the RIVALS APK by tapping on this link (an APK is a type of file that Android uses to install applications):

  2. locate the file in your downloads folder and tap it. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the beta version of RIVALS. If you get stuck, try asking the community for help in our official Discord server or send us an email to support@metagames.gg

Playtest timeframe

You can play it as much as you wish until we release the full version as an update to the regular game in the Google Play store.
