    NDA removed for beta?

    Hi, i'm just wondering .. Is the NDA going to be removed once the game enters BETA? So at least those who are not fortunate enough to get access at least see how the game is progressing?

    Closed = NDA
    Open = No NDA

    Pretty standard procedure. There won't be an NDA when it's open to the public, but any private testing is just that...private and privileged to a select few. Open beta rarely has an NDA because that's the point where they want those partaking to help generate hype for the final launch, which everyone does through youtube. Closed alpha, and beta, are points where they're still not confident with their work and fear that hype generated may be, "This game sucks" based upon roughly fleshed out gameplay, visuals, etc.

    As far as I knew Closed meant that they select testers and Open is well, open to all applicants. I'm preety sure i saw footage from Closed Beta's in the past. And yes obviously they shouldn't lift the NDA before they're safe from "This game sucks" comments.

    This is the internet - we're never going to be safe from that comment.

    Because no one ever judges a game until the finished product is done.

    I'll just go and look back at those first few days the forums were open and-*face is melted off by hate*

    Although you might want to stock up on spare faces, after all there are a lot of LoK fans that want a sequel to defiance

    I'm personally willing to wait and see if the face melting is required, after all this game is most likely to be the linch pin of to which the future of the series rests and should this do well, and there's no reason so far as to why it shouldn't.

    then who knows we could still get our true sequel (Rubs hands with glee).

    Also it's a game about vampires so there will always be discussions about it 'sucking' in one form or another.
