I actualy awaited that beta to come, but im sowhat dissapointed, i have to pay to try beta? Or did i misunderstand something?

Will it be the same case with Arma 3 beta?

I just dropped an IFV from 3,000 feet in the air. You know what happened? That's right, absolutely nothing. It hit the ground at 150 km/h, landed upright, and the AI driver kept right on trucking without a bit of damage.

you are paying for the actual game, and if you do that you have access to the beta since you are obviously interested in the game.

I really don't understand why you would think beta access is should be a given to you. It is NOT the demo of the product, it is a WIP phase.

I don't think it is a bad idea - you get a copy of the game when it is released as well, not like you need to pay again once the whole thing is finished....

umm, if some people think, paying for unfinished product is a good idea, well thats their choice. I can't judge anyone in this case. :)

Posted by you after this topic:

Soundtrack sounds epic, makes u wanna buy that game! :D


Well, this issue is solved I would say!

Locked, you pay for the game and get acces to the beta. Wether it is like that in Arma 3 the future will tell and can be discussed in the Arma 3 section.
