I really do not understand what the private beta is about. I wish their was more info on it (in depth).
That you can play is before release. So they can collected data if stuff needs changing
You can't relay on YouTubers etc to tell what is wrong or not. As they are not like the casual gamers
Play the game before it's released...probably limited modes, maps, features and weapons...that's about it...
My guess, it will just be MP...I'd be surprised if they even have Blackout...never know though...
A beta should be all around network drain, where the devs can see how their servers working, and for to see how good or bad connections from all around the globe are working.
I remember WW2 had some testing about network traffic. But I guess they had no clue what to do with the data they collected from those tests. We see it in the game how poor their servers + connections are.
There is no such thing as beta anymore.. its a marketing gimmick which is why they need to change the name to more of a gimmick each year....
"private beta" a gimmick to sell the soffware using hype and use you for as pre-launch test guinea pig.
Note the terms.. minimum beta has to be is 3 days.. so expect a 3 day pre launch to the game, if you buy now you can get access to the crapstorm that it will be before launch....i dont know of any design studios that can test software in 3 days... so yeah.. its not no beta
surely you can have a glimpse of my testing portfolio.. I have tested over 250 AAA games in what was "REAL" beta testing done by the public as well as closed testing firms
Here is just a few you may have heard of
Ultima Online 98
Fireteam - the first online multiplayer voice activated network game.
Asherons Call 2
Lord Of The Rings Online (Won top prize for best best crafter ($50 best buy card)
Not many software since LOTRO had a real beta....
Except maybe Heroes of the Storm - Over 3000 matches played in beta
