It might be worth tempering all the excitement with the reminder that this is a beta, not a finished game, and it's going to be rough. We know from the gamescon footage that path-finding is dodgy at the moment and probably will be for a little while until Obsidian can get their fix in. We also know that auto-attack was bugged and it may not be fixed in the initial beta release.

 

Anyway with that said I hope everyone enjoys it and helps obsidian make the game <Lephys> beta </Lephys>

I wish timezones went in the opposite direction. There's nothing west of california but water, no one's benefitting from being downstream! But if western europe was 9 hours behind instead of 9 hours ahead, I could've woken up to a beta key ready to be redeemed. Now, now I have to wait.

I think it's pretty much an international consensus that Pacific Time is the shіttiest time zone in existence. Too bad some idiot decided to put California in there.

Paying for a beta should have netted us a lot more information than we're getting, along with a 12:01am EST release of this badboy. Instead, it's 8:45am with not even a word.

 

Had I not paid, I wouldn't have this high of an expectation. As noted earlier, at long as this has several hours of gameplay I'll at least feel like got something for my money.

3+ hours to go.

 

And I think the reason its not out yet, is because they actually want to be awake for launch.

Nothing against Oregon but somehow its timezone never bothered me. Which is more than I can say about San Francisco, LA and San Diego being in that temporal netherland.

This is pretty much how I feel And for some bizarre reason, it made me think of those pain diggers getting happiness out of hanging in metal hooks, as seen in the Moaning of Life, with Karl Pilkington, ep 2, for instance.

I have to go in for overtime around 11am EST, I just hope they get the keys out before then so I can start the download on steam and it is ready to play when I get back home in the 4ish area.

Does OE release any information regarding the size of beta? 25% or 50% of the actual game.

The devs have said that the beta takes between 3 and 6 hours. They've been reluctant to say how long it takes to play the game but from what they've said about the number of maps they have I'd say its less than 10%, maybe 20% tops.

Content-wise, more like 5-10%. They're saying 3-5 hours.

 

Looks a lot like it's the vertical slice by the way. Which makes sense for a lot of reasons. Also good because it's the first content they would have made, and the first content is always the worst.

 

Edit: ninja-ed...

3-5 hours was Josh's stated estimate a few days ago.

 

Content wise it has:

 

1) the full character creator

2) one village/town

3) 2 wilderness maps (which appear to be pretty decent in size)

4) 2 dungeons + "a small dungeon" (josh's words)

5) 4 questlines (and we got to see one of them in the gamescon demonstration)

 

You'll get to auto-level to 5 at the start, and possibly gain enough to reach level 8 by playing)

It's the vertical slice village, although they've added a backer inn over the top of the placeholder inn. The Wilderness area Dyrford Crossing I am not 100% sure if it was a vertical slice area or not. The first time we saw that area was at one of Chris Avellone's presentations in late 2013 (I think it was one in Brazil, actually) but it probably was, as the quests are related to it.
