$5 for arena commander pass.
Why do you need that? I thought anyone who buys the basic $40 package gets Alpha/Beta access etc. which includes this AC module no?

And why do they rob us with expensive prices on old titles?
Rob you?
It is your choice to buy it or not isn't it?
They usually go on sale for 50% off etc but the cheapest way to get the older titles are the grey market key sellers.

Has anyone tried this? (Spectralmeat Im looking at you) Im interested in impressions.
I am at work, won't have time until later tonight to give this a try, by that time others on here will most likely give their first impressions.
I would like to try it tonight though.
Wonder how long the downloading will take.

I get back into this game time and time again but after about a month or so, I realize how much time it requires to be online and play that I just don't have these days.

Chris Roberts - makes promises he won't deliver on
Maybe he is too busy recording his next youtube web video series about office chair setups for the hangar module.

Lots of EVE reference in the game so far. Definitely feels like EVE in first person view, but you can play this in sp also. Very similar concepts though.

No idea about the Fanatec peripherals but Next Car Game is already a true successor of Fallout and Destruction Derby.
Oh I know the game is fantastic I have it, but advertising Fanatec wheels with this game is not the best choice.
I actually prefer playing this game with a controller not my wheel. I have no idea who would buy Fanatec gear for this game

OK, one additional stupid question: Is there eventually going to be more SP, or is MP the primary focus of the game? I just assumed there would be a (strong) SP portion as well (though I totally understand if it's not ready yet).

Thanks again!
As far as I know there is no SP campaign/story. The game is a sandbox game you play however you like. The beta currently populated with npc pirates there will be faction wars and staff like that but you choose what you want to do and create your own story.
The sandbox game (finished game) can be played solo/coop/open MP where every single ship you encounter can be another person not an npc.
If you wish however you can play completely solo.

Right now however the beta is MP only in terms of the sandbox gameplay, and the portion of the galaxy that is available just a tiny portion of the full game. A lot more to come

Last questions before I pull the trigger:

How much SP content appears to be in this latest version? Are there missions and such, or is it just flying around and landing?

How does patching work? Do they have their own client, or are you downloading each version or what?

Thanks man!

The SP in the beta is basically just a tutorial.
There are 9 SP mission scenarios. Starting with shooting at floating garbage cans and the last mission is a last man standing style waves of enemies warping in and trying to kill you.
How long those will take is up to you and you skills but those are more of a tutorials than anything else.
I still haven't finished them.

The MP is basically a huge sandbox where you can fly anywhere and do anything, trading, hunting, pvp whatever you want. Earn cash upgrade your ships, weapons etc. That is what the game really is, the rest feels like wasting time.
There are no landing and stations in the SP that is all MP.
No need to worry about not pulling off a perfect landing. I've seen people smashing into the side of the space station where there is no door, and all kinds of funky stuff.

There is a game launcher that starts up. You login with your user name and pw and that will check to make sure your game client is up to date.
From the old Alpha version what I've had the upgrade process involved an update to the launcher itself and then a 6Gb download and install of the beta game.
According to the forums it is probably better to remove the old version and install the new fresh but I did not bother.
There are some crashes especially in MP but the game automatically creates a crash report and ask you to send it ones you are back at the desktop. No hard lock ups though.
Crashes usually appear when I log off the MP or I enter the station and try to buy something.
Another interesting thing about the MP is that you save your game as you exit and you come back in when you log in at the same spot you left off. Just like a SP game.

Hope that answers your questions

Lots to learn when it comes to combat and overall ship controls.
Tim here in this video is a very decent pilot and he is getting his ass kicked in MP atm.
Have a look

For anyone that is curious the beta is amazing, so is the X-55 Rhino from Saitek, my flight skills however need a lot of work.
Managed to blow up a few times during landing, I don't even have a chance against other human players atm.
Need to put more time into learning the controls and master them.
Good thing is other players get no bounty for killing other players unless they are pirates with bounty on their head.
So PvE is much better time investment than PvP unless you are bounty hunting and looking for player pirates.

So far so good though, I am looking forward to see all the new stuff they are bringing to this beta in the coming weeks.
until then I have my work cut out for me and have to learn how to fly properly

Fanatec sells some nice stuff but their prices are out of this World.
I don't think Next Car Game is really a game for the steering wheel users. Asseto Corsa and Project Cars may have been a better option to use for Fanatec to boost some sales, but that's just my 2 cents.
