I wasnt trying to imply that he was, my question opens with asking if its the exception to the mainstream rule biggrin.gif

Which seems to be the case, I dont participate in many beta's, so I dont know what the standard should be

I think this was posted already but the 20% code from greenmangaming.com works on Battlefront and it worked for me on Fallout 4 too. $48 on launch day is a good deal to me. They give you steam keys to redeem when the game goes live.

It works until the 23rd I believe!

March 12, 2015 - Closed Alpha - NDA
Mid September - Closed Beta - NDA
September 20, 2015 - Technical Preview - NDA
September 22, 2015 - Open Beta (with key) - live stream permitted
October 1, 2015 - End beta

Set now (after delay) for Dec 1, 2015

Just the sequence of events as best I can remember them.

From Technical preview to Open Beta there was a HUGE difference in the quality of the title, matchmaking being the most noticed for obvious reasons lol.

You should expect to see major changes between technical previews, Alpha, and into Beta. Normally you wouldn't see many changes beyond fine tuning between Beta and Release. Using your time table....

  • March 12, 2015 - Closed Alpha - NDA
  • Changes
  • Mid September - Closed Beta - NDA'
  • Changes
  • September 20, 2015 - Technical Preview - NDA
  • Even more changes
  • September 22, 2015 - Open Beta (with key) - live stream permitted
  • Tweaking/minor changes
  • October 1, 2015 - End beta
  • Stability and fine tweaks
  • Release


The above also excludes the continual changes and tweaking that is usually an on going process. However, big changes normally aren't happening in the beta phase of things. A great example of a game having major changes last minute? Destiny, and we all know how that ended!
