When is Open Beta ?
When is Open Beta ?
When god wants
Started yesterday, didn't you get the memo?
I will ping you when it starts
it usually starts 60 to 15 days before launch,and i think i heard Gaffney give a similar timeframe,can't remember in what interview though
lol, look at OP's picture on the left
fall 2013 hopefully, but my prediction is early 2014.
I think it starts in September.
When they think it is ready. They are lucky that I am not in the closed beta. I would find so many bugs that the game would not be able to come out till the middle of 2014..
But seriously...They are working hard to make it a good game before open beta so they wont have much to fix when the time comes. I would rather wait a little longer for a polished game than play the game that is unplayable and not fun to play.
Following most MMO developement trends Id say 3rd quarter 2014.
I guess myself its end of october. (Black friday / Christmas release) .. It fits and sounds logical. Anyway. They said in SDCC ( San diego Comic Con) That they had their last "preparations" before THEE open beta. So i have my hopes
There will be no open beta, open beta to Carbine is Closed beta with no NDA.
How do you know this ?
You heard it here first.
yeah i saw that too, they believe closed beta is enough to test the game and dont want to burn players with open beta
I very much doubt they will have a totally open beta. I'm pretty sure that Gaffney said in a video that open beta to them is a closed one with no NDA. I expect closed beta numbers to rise a lot when they begin elder game testing but it will stay invite only.
Lots of companies make the mistake of having a beta where they let too many people in too soon and never get anything changed or improved upon. If they can release the game with a trial version of the game and have B2P model I don't think an open beta is needed. Open beta is purely for marketing hence why if they do have open beta, it's a long, long way off due to the amount of changes currently going on and need to happen.
It will be the same as GW 2,you will only be able to play if you preorder.
But open beta was my only hope for beta testing...
Open beta isn't really a beta nowadays though. Everyone treats it like a preview.
Expect a release date announcement before open beta.
