Beta? more like a 3 hour demo i think they only really want you to test out the dark zone as so much stuff is locked out.

I enjoyed it. Not much to do, really, but it does give you a taste of what the game will be like. All the mechanics look nice and polished.

As you'd expect, mind you, since they delayed it a few times.

The Dark Zone is quite interesting. You can't use any of the kit unless you've extracted it, and when you try to EVERYONE knows you're trying to do just that, and it's like a beacon for PvP.

I'll only be going out there early on, and then at end game. Mid game will just lead to extreme frustration.

I've played/streamed it the past few days & I've enjoyed it. It's definitely better in groups & venturing in the DZ is a no-no Solo as you'll get hammered by Rogue players.

There's definitely potential in the game & for an Ubisoft title it's actually quite polished, but there's lots locked away in this Beta, but there's been `leaked` info that there's an Open Beta in approx 3 weeks time so we may see more then.

I'm hunting around for a good price

Yeah needs stooooopid uplay but you can link your uplay account to steam to make it a bit faster.

Seems like a decent game so far. I have only got to level 5 though so not far in at all.

Had some time to play yesterday too ... like it so far, even though did not get very far (only lvl5 too). Somehow I sometimes get lost just wandering around and getting shot .

I'm missing the preoder stuff, or maybe just the key from my digital order?
Did you redeem any of those? Strangely I get nothing at the redeem vandor in the base ... even though have some beta rewards.

The preorder stuff seems to take a while to come through, i was just playing then suddenly everything came in. You'll know when you get it as a load popups will appear in game. Also if you go to the ubisoft store you can purchase some nice items with reward points that you earn including 500 credits which is good to start with.

Yer it does require you to be friends in uplay to group up was playing with Gaz last night and game is definitely better in a group even if Gaz didnt like the hard difficulty . Anyway if anyone wants to group my uplay account is Rustainn (yer it is double n, someone stole me name

Liking it, although the 1st hour of my stream was fucking painful & I mean painful.

So what's that discord?
Had yesterday a run a the first "technical mission" on hard mode and it was quite fun even though it sucked with a random group with alot of dying but in the end they managed to see the pattern to follow too. I think it was nice that it actually needed a bit of coordinated fighting and a bit different tactics for each "room".
Anyway ... if I can keep up with leveling I'm happy to join you if I'm around too ... so add me on uplay if you like (darkfireeye too)! As group, even with randoms, it is way more fun.

I'm holding off on buying, at the moment - too many bad reviews on Steam (dull repetitive gameplay, not much content (a friend mentioned being 25% through the main storyline after only an hour and a half of play), the AI being terrible, etc).

Not sure I can justify paying full price, given all of that...

I have bought it and the season pass. Still not done too much. Got my character up to level 10 and got about 30% of the base up and running. It is good so far though. I have sunk at least 4 hours into it today without even looking up
