Be aware: Reading the whole faq will most likely than not make your wallet slimmer by 75 bucks, give or take some due to regional differences.

tl;dr : yes, all those options will be available
Thanks.
I've never bothered to read all that stuff.
I for one don't mind the pure MP gameplay. It makes it exciting to fly around and you never know who you are going to run into.
It makes the game exciting every single time you play it.
There is no difference between getting killed by Ai or by real players in terms of cost to replace your ship/equipment/cargo but still it hurts a little more when another player killed you not an Ai.

There are also some really awesome scenarios that can play out that scripted Ai can never be able to replicate.

For example:
Player pirate camping the gate of a space station and blows everyone up that exit. One by one people exiting the station get destroyed.
One of the guys who just got destroyed got into a free Sidewinder (you get this ship if you do not want to pay the insurance to have your ship/cargo/equipment replaced)
He hovers inside the station and waits for another player to exit the station.
Ones the other player exits he boosts through the gate and sees the pirate player attacking the ship that just exited.
While the pirate is busy this player locks on and start shooting at the pirate.
The pirate player tries to make a run for it but it is too late, he is done.
Bounty collected and the station entrance is safe ones again.

I'd like to pick that up still but can't find any deals on it.
Maybe I'll just wait for this new one instead.
Uplay had it on their store for $7 during the E3 sale. g2a has it on for under $10 right now.
Thanks
I know it's been on sale several times on different places I just always miss out on it.
I think it's been $5 a few times

There will be coop play and completely offline single player. Not sure about private servers and stuff.
As far as I understand you can decide if you want to open up your sandbox game to your friends to play coop keep it locked to single player only so everyone you meet in the game is Ai controlled or have it fully open MP so everyone you meet in the game can be another player.

It is still early beta so a lot of these things are not finalized, but as far as I know you can play the game however your heart desires, but ones again not sure if you will have access to the actual server files to host your own game. Also most of the systems are procedurally generated so I am not 100% sure how the meet up with your friends will work, as in carry your single player game progress over into MP or coop.

I suppose we'll see if this is any good... when they have something to show ~.~

Never will understand what the point of these "pre-announce" announces is. As in: They don't tell us anything at all about the game, yet expect us to somehow care about it... like seriously, what is the point of that?
I know what you mean. I'll be pissed if the actual announcement will be another pre rendered trailer.
Why can't they do a 10 minutes long gameplay video with dev commentary or something similar.
It is 2014 not 1999. Noone cares about pre rendered crap.

This game just looks so... relaxing. You know, just floating thru space, nary a care.
Well it is kind of like that until another player sneak up and attack you.
It feels kind of like EVE Online in many different ways, but in first person view of course, and with direct control of your ship.

Always online DRM?
They've never bothered to patch that out of the old one.

There are quite a few little things that they can do which they steadfastly refuse to do.

They do not have to do anything. For them there is no money in pc gaming.

In console gaming on the other hand they have their greedy hand in everything from hardware to software, royalty fee after every single copy of game sold, annual fee for mp gaming, buying new hardware, or any kind of accesory for your console, controllers, etc.
They make money on all those things, while not a dime on the PC.
It is pretty obvious why they don't give a flying fuck about pcgamers and they would love to see everyone with a PC gaming rig to migrate to the bone instead.
That's where all the hardcore XxXgamerzXxX are anyways.

I've always loved it when the devs justification to a 10Gb day 1 patch involves "making the game compatible with DLC"

Well it was a kickstarter project, which for games on kickstarter not having a publisher is pretty much the gist of the entire thing...
Yes I know but not all kickstarter games make it.
I am just glad he was able to stick to his guns and not getting any publishers involved and get the game founded.

Beta 2 comes out tomorrow.

Good for Braben.
I'd hate to see an Elite Dangerous game that was aimed at the 13-18 years old CoD crowd.

X Rebirth is on the 9PM est flash sale...for $25 lol. Gonna wait till next summer sale after more patching and get it for 5 dolla.

Yeah, do not buy that for 25 bucks. It's in no way, shape or form worth more than $2.50.

I was going to say the same thing, no way its even worth 5$

Maybe crytek should ensure all their titles including latest Crysis are sold on Steam and not be exclusive to EA crappy store,
Unfortunately that is not Crytek's decision. It is their publisher's which in this case is EA.

News Comments > GRID Autosport Trailer
7. Re: GRID Autosport Trailer Jun 20, 2014, 15:58 SpectralMeat
 
I don't know if you follow Alan and his Team VVV on youtube but he has a pretty good set of videos of the preview build.
He runs a triple screen setup on his PC.
He is a super nice guy and usually replies to any questions or concerns on his youtube videos or on Twitter.
His channel is my go to place for all the racing game coverage.

Another good place to look is Inside Sim Racing for Grid Autosport preview.

Like I said the game will probably be fun, but the Ai at the moment looks pretty flaky, and on top of that with the amount of games I have in my backlog I am not sure I am ready to dive into another Grid game.
The last one left a terrible taste in my mouth.
You know what they say, fool me ones shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

USTS?

As for Grid yeah it looks promising on paper but I'll see ones the game is out how it is.
From all the preview vids I've seen the Ai is pretty terrible. I know the preview build is not final but still it should be somewhat decent at least.
