So let me get this straight. Nov 2 is the release yet and the beta hasn't even started yet. *cough*

Beta shmeta. Where does it say a game must have a public beta?

Look at FFXIV as an example that a beta isn't really necessary if they aren't even going to put all the content in for testing, or listen to any feedback.

It's SOE. They don't need no stinkin' beta.

They're gonna' do what they're gonna' do.

@ Neurotic

You haven't been around MMOGs long enough, have you.

Modern Betas are waste of time really.

Betas don't really result in big bug fixes.

They are usually just a chance for people to play free before launch or websites to build guides.

In truth modern Betas are obsolete. If people wanna play, then make them buy it or wait some months after launch for the free trial.

Open betas aren't really testing phases anymore, so they are not really needed.

Have they started closed beta with the public yet? Not heard much about the progress myself.

They are pretty tight lipped, which may be smart.

I'd wager most of the beta comments will be from players who want a more traditional MMORPG and can accept the action hybrid MMO concept.

I'm anxious to see how this title turns out, but I have to be brutally honest here and point something out. From the gameplay trailers and screens that I've seen, so far this looks like simply a higher polygon count/current-gen version of CoH. I'm looking foward to reading about the actual mechanics and character design but have yet to see anything that made me think "Wow, I gotta get this!".
