For those that have paid $75 / €60 / £50 for Standard Beta, a date has been set for July 29th.

The Expansion Pass is being removed from sale at this same date.

I'm a little confused with all the different betas. Maybe someone can help me.

All i want to know: If I want to play now, what do I have to do? Buy that Beta access from the official page for like 60 bucks? Or will the beta start in July 29th when i buy this?

Thanks for your help.

Well, i guess in order to test i have to play, or am I wrong?

Do you also have an answer on the question?

sorry was just checking the site to confirm :)

 

I think it is this package you need to gain access on the 29th :)

I backed the game in kickstarter but not for any beta or alpha access but the game is looking really good from what I have seen so far so cant wait for it. ah infact I just upgraded mt kickstarter  to beta access as it was only £15.. :)

If you buy the $75 pack you get the single player scenarios today. On the 29th you'll get access to the multiplayer as well.

If you buy the $50 pack you have to wait until beta is over (probably 2 months or so).

Yep. For me its CTD, BSOD or app hang every 15 minutes. Waiting to go online lasts longer hehe. For non hardcore beta testers i recommend waiting a month or two before jumping in. Maybe couple of weeks if they are fast at fixing bugs.

Looks like those guys are competent. Didnt have any ctds or bsods since second day patch. Nice
