Yes 'game slut' was aimed at everyone, including myself.

We don't want to hear any more about your dongle

One last delay for the game release

First things first, we need to delay one last time the release of Steel Division 2. The definitive release date will be on June 20th for the Standard Edition & on June 18th for the Digital Deluxe Editions.

More (and better) beta playtime


Consequently, you will be able to play the game longer before release. Way longer. The initial plan was to make 5 48-hour phases before release. After the first phase, we heard your requests and made a 4-day Beta Phase 2. As you know, Phase 3 will start on Thursday, April 18th and will be 5 days long, until Tuesday, April 23rd.

From May 29th the Beta will be playable non-stop until release on June 20th. It will get updated during this 3-week period and we're preparing very cool content for you guys.

Blah to the delay, but I guess if it makes it better so be it. 

I'll say, I had a heck of a good time with the last beta.  There needed to be a few minor balance passes, but it's a lot better than SD44 even in its current state.

I'm not so much annoyed by the delay, but the break in the beta is what irritates. Why do it in phases? Just let it run.

Apparently they're phasing it because they're releasing different divisions for each phase so they can do a full balance pass on them.

I agree though, they can do that and still keep it playable.  It'd be better for bug reporting if they did (though I will say I found the build to be incredibly stable).

I guess if they let the beta run continuously, wouldn't that be just early access then:)

I didn't get much of a chance to try it during the first beta, so hopefully can sneak some time in one of these phases...

NON STOP BETA IS HERE in 2 DAYS!! Hellz yeah. Looking forward to this. But worried I will burn out on it before the grand campaign is available. Still a little bummed that proper mountains or terrain undulation that looks natural and map modding do not seem to be in. It's better than before though in terms of mountain modelling. The combat is at such long ranges as well, that it makes those close hedge rows of normandy seem like heaven in terms of variety of combat situations. This is such a grand scale. See if you can micro your ammo types!

I haven't played the beta more than just casually for the reason of not burning out before the campaign.
