Beta tomorrow.


Wow, I wasn't expecting it to be that soon. I was expecting "beta in two weeks" or similar. I was getting ready for another wait. This is awesome.

Just as well I haven't played pillars for a while, hopefully I can now do a couple of "canon" play throughs with the same portraits I'll use in Deadfire.

Thanks guys for listening!

Was the beta included in any backer level or is it sold completely seperately?

It was included in tiers $99+ and could be added as add-on for the others.

Yeah I considered it, but since I only wanted digital rewards this time (adding on shipping to here for physical goods put me off it, especially since I didn't really do much with the physical stuff last time) the only reason for me to go higher really was for the beta access, and I have come to the realisation that I don't enjoy playing in beta.  I prefer to wait for the full game release, avoiding spoilers and getting tired of the gameplay.  Plus, I'm a grump old git these days.

So, I received my key on the backer portal, registered it in steam, but it doesn't appear in my library... Anyone else having this issue ?

Same (and restarting Steam does not change anything for those wondering).

We can do 2 things now:

 

1) Grab torches and pitchforks and storm Obsidian HQ;

2) Cry.

 

I prefer the latter, for various reasons.

 

Edit: but torches and pitchforks can be pretty cool too.

Probably should mention the problems in the beta testing section as the Dems might not have looked in this thread.

Gonna plug the link of the thread over there anyway.

Good thinking! Will do that!

 

I've sent a tweet to @obsidian about the problem by the way. Maybe we will get some info that way too.

 

*edit*

 

Got a reply from @obsidian. They are aware of the problem and looking into it.

Aartz already mentioned that they're looking into it.

Edit: I see him in this thread now, heh
