Hey, everybody. I just wanted to announce that we have decided on a release date for the Backer Beta: August 18th.

 

We will discuss all of the particulars in a formal Kickstarter announcement, but we wanted you to hear about it first.

I know I'm going to get trolled for this Question but is PE going to be on steam early access or greenlight?

Well that's surprising to get told this on a Monday, no complaints though. So August 18 is day after Gen Con, and I have been theorizing the game play footage would premiere there, and Beta would follow, but looks like it's sooner than I anticipated. Better sooner than later, so we can help fix the bugs. They're still fixing hundreds of bugs each patch it seems like on the BG EE games!

I can't remember whether they said they were going to go early access, but they don't need to do a greenlight, they have a publisher, Paradox.

I'm hoping this is more of a combat/character creation tech demo than anything else. Part of me doesn't want to know the story and would rather wait until it's fully released. I'll be waiting for people to mention what it will be like. If it's a demo to test things including if it works on your computer I'll try it out. If it's part of the story I might leave it and wait for the full game.

Now that came out of the blue...

 

Will there be an NDA on beta players?

I doubt it. I recall Brandon saying they're not worried about people posting the gameplay to twitch/youtube.

They already said elsewhere that they want to encourage players to post Let's Plays etc., so that would imply "no." Keeping track of so many NDA's would be a major PITA too.

I just came to say this.

Hey, everybody. I just wanted to announce that we have decided on a release date for the Backer Beta: August 18th.

When I came into this thread, I was hoping it would be on my birthday.

 

I was not expecting it to. I was still expecting to write a "a birthday present" post, though.

 

I was not expecting it to be on my birthday.

 

But now I'm just so happy.

Well, Obsidian, Steam and GOG are all accessible from here - I guess it depends on where they upload it to, but both the likely candidates (obsidian.net and steam) shouldn't have a dl problem :)

Just make sure you bring your laptop over ;)

Whereabouts you headed? (Big cities have places with free wifi ;) )

 

(Youtube on the other hand is not so easy)
