The League of Legends Public Beta Environment is the best way to test out new gameplay that hasn’t yet made its way to League of Legends. Here’s how to sign up for the PBE in 2022.
With new Teamfight Tactics set Neon Night and the latest support champion in Renata Glasc making their way to the PBE, fans are as eager as ever to try out something new on League of Legends’ test server. The requirements for a PBE account have changed over the years, so how do you sign up for the PBE in 2022?
How to sign up for LoL PBE
In previous years it took a level 30 account to sign up for the LoL PBE. This requirement has since been waived due to the success and popularity of Teamfight Tactics. New TFT set Neon Nights is making its debut on the public test realm ahead of its live release in mid-February, and Riot Games clearly wants as many fans to try it out as possible.
In order to obtain a Public Beta Environment account, you need to have an active League of Legends account with at least honor level three or above at the time of registration. Even if you drop out of the required honor range, your PBE account will still be accessible. This helps you to access PBE at the beginning of the League of Legends season. All you need to do is link your test server account to your live League of Legends account on the PBE sign up page.
What is the PBE?
The Public Beta Environment is the server on which Riot Games tests new changes before bringing them to the live servers of League of Legends. From preseason overhauls to Visual Gameplay Updates to new TFT sets, everything hits the PBE before it gets approved for live play. For many fans this is a way to get a head start on new champions or to try out brand new gameplay features.
