You can believe it’s a “beta” to fit your own rationale, but it is actually a beta, warts and all. It is a months old version, missing many features. This doesn’t indicate anything other than that. You can see many of the missing features in the trailers intended for the launch version if you want. Yet, that doesn’t guarantee a great game, I realize, but there seems to be a lot of folks rushing to judgement on a beta, not a demo, hence the disclaimer upon launching the file - and that seems to speak more about the players state than the beta’s.I'm kind of tired of the Beta and COVID-19 excuses. This "Beta" is in shambles more so than any beta in recent memory, and for this ONLINE only game to be in this state few months away from launch at $70 is inexcusable.
I'll keep an open mind and see how the launch goes and still give it a chance if they manage to fix a lot of the underlying issues. Time will tell but they need to earn it.
