I honestly think the beta will release when the virtual cabin is fully complete... or we get information on the beta release date.

Think about it. EVERYTHING in the cabin is bring used in the game. Meaning once the cabin is complete, so is the game...

Coincidence? I think NOT!

I'm on to your game, Wes.

I swear I'm not half as angry as I seem to be.

Well.....I dont know that it'll release when the cabin is finished, but I sure think the cabin is a good indication that beta is a while out, since there are 2 Jasons and 4 counselors NOT available yet and we know those have to be complete before beta. I'd guess it'll still take a while after those are put in before they're OK with opening up the beta.

Well the next few Jasons should almost be done.

They only need The Jock and The Edgy Guy along with one more counselor.

Jarvis may come in later while the beta is still in progress.

I'd say end of the month?

That's an interesting thought, but having those completely finished aren't really necessary for beta. Most betas will restrict certain content anyway. Like some will give you a couple of characters to play with just to get some stress testing and seeing how the mechanics play balance out. So really, if they gave us just what is done to this point it would be a perfectly acceptable beta. They don't need all the Jasons or all of the counselors to get the information they're looking for.

Well it would depend on how special each Jason is to each other. They are said to have different strengths and weaknesses.

I'm all for that. It just doesnt seem to be Gun's MO to put it out before it's all there. They are perfectionists and have said time and time again they want everything to be amazing before they let us see it.

I think there is a misunderstanding here.

 

I don't see them as perfectionists... the only thing they have shown themselves perfectionists on is the accuracy and representation of the F13th franchise.  That means getting every detail, musical note, and setting right.

 

However, that doesn't mean they won't launch the game without a few characters.

Some friends and I re-watched the movies in order and then fired up the cabin again to look around and spot the references. The attention to detail and working in items or references to most of the movies is pretty amazing! I can't wait to see what they do with full blown maps.

There will limited access to items in the beta. Afterall it is a beta test. Tommy Jarvis will not be in the beta, he will arrive with the launch of the multiplayer game in early 2017.

Just to throw my contribution into the "what we're getting in the beta, and what we're not" conversation; Wes confirmed in a tweet a couple of weeks ago that we're not getting all of the Jasons in the beta.

Stress-testing the servers, seeing if there are any game-breaking faults and analysing how the balancing works is the real priority for the beta, if it's anything like others.

 

So I won't be surprised if there are some skins/features not finished off yet for it.

 

It's incredibly valuable, though; this really is going to be something that will help polish and shape the game, through actual players getting to go hands-on and mess about in the sandpit. There are a huge amount of variables in a game like this and it's real gold dust to get the players involved at a testing stage.

The way things are going so far, i'd say we'll get notice late december that the beta is pushed back to early 2017, and will release sometime in february, after the other announcement that online is pushed back into late spring 2017.

 

 

I might sound slightly salty about the initial delays. I dunno. It irks me a bit. So little info for a game i'm hyped for does that i guess.

Don't convince me this doesn't fit their M.O so far :P


BETA GONE
