It's a Multiplayer Open Beta, not a demo

Does it not also act to demonstrate the product.

Now that I think about it... games that get released are not the final product either lol

As this wont be the end released product then I'd say no.

Nope, this isn't representative of the final product. It's beta. You're supposed to play it to report any bugs / glitches etc.

No its multiplayer beta access.

No its multiplayer beta access.

So it's not demonstrating the multiplayer element in its current beta state? I think most people will be using it as such rather than to report bugs. Especially given its proximity to the release date.

Dude give up. It's a beta, not a demo.

It's more demo than Beta. Beta is just a marketing phrase these days. They won't be making changes based on the "play testing" done this week.

You don't report them yourself. The developers are watching to see what happens and will adjust things accordingly.

A beta is testing the game for bugs and other issues.

A demo is promotional. They may well release a demo in the near future. You will know if they do because it will be called a demo.

Of course they will.

It's released in a month. This is a demo in all but name.

Call it what you like.. It really does not matter does it.
All I am 100% sure of is I have never liked Star Wars!

These comments are less Star Wars and more Nerd Wars.

Hhaha! blame being bored at work. Was just fun to wind up the usual forum pedant who gets hung up on these things!

Who gives a crap if it's a demo or a beta, just play it and decide whether or not you are going to buy it.

It's open to everyone, not just people who pre-ordered

Don't decide based on this!!! It's not a demo for Christs sake !

Because you're not a "real gamer" (aka sadact) unless you get these things right.

I'll put an end to this... neither a demo or beta is the final product

No demo ever is.

Cold, can't camp a hero pickup, then spawn kill with Bossk. They've taken all the fun away...

It's on Xbox as well. Thanks for the heads up OP Downloading now!

How can you not like R2D2..... that little tin rascal, he gets up to all kinds of mischief.
I do think he would have been better with a mexican handlebar moustache though

Looking forward to trying this. Although it’s not really a deal, there’s new free demos released several times every month for various games...

It is a deal as only available for a few days!

We’ve already had the beta/demo debate, don’t cause a is it a deal/ not a deal debate too

Multiplayer betas are pretty much demos of a online game, they say it's to test the servers but it's clearly a marketing plan to sell more copy's of the game. Will be downloading it and giving it a play but very much doubt I will buy it unless the campaign gets favable reviews.

All demos are beta's.. pedantic much?

demo as a verb means;

demonstrate the capabilities of (software or another product).

in fact 'beta' is used incorrectly as the term “beta” refers to a product’s stage of development.. you can't really release a stage of development, but you can release a demonstration of a current stage of development.

Jees kids these days.. try going back to the 80's and getting a demo cassette of a spectrum mag.. none of us got beta cassettes
Edited by: "haritori" 6th Oct

Not sure you can call this particular beta a demo if you have to commit to buying the full game first...! If you don't enjoy the demo you've already bought the game!

We didn't get betas because we got full releases on Speccy or Amstrad. They had to, since it was shipped out on a tape, and they couldn't just patch a tape after release.

Technically all games are rolling betas now, since games are constantly being developed, even after release. It's one thing I hate about modern gaming.

Imagine if you bought a book, and then in a few weeks the author decided to change chapter 7, so they sent you some new pages to read

Not a deal

there were plenty of demos on older consoles.

Takes soooo long waiting for players that every one drops out of waiting.

Anyone played this on a standard PS4? The framerate and motion blur is horrendous.
