    Picked up a beta key for this event as well for $3 Aud that way I can see if I want to per-order or not. If anyone wants to team up for some runs my Uplay Name is : OzKao feel free to add me :cool:

    Had a little problems launching the game on my system. But browsing the Ubisoft forums, figured it out.

    I had to go the installation directory and change the Compatibility to Windows 7 & Run as Administrator. And it launched after that. Played a little, game looks cool. Got work on the keybinds and getting familiar with the controls. But otherwise, runs pretty well.

    Had a blast playing this today for a while, got through most of the beta stuff except the dark zone. Love the atmosphere and story so far. My Uplay is babyhuey0 if anyone wants to add. Very happy to keep my preorder, cannot wait until March 8th!.

    Yeah i jumped on right on 11pm last night, its pretty good, can see its been made with consoles in mind. Lack of jump annoys me a little but I can live with that. I am R3ZORT on uplay if anyone wants to add me.

    You definately don't want to go into the Dark Zone alone. Can't really trust anyone in there. As soon, as they think they have the upper hand, they will mow you down. Kind of fun, makes it intense, but so far, running solo doesn't seem to pay off. :)

    Depends on the instance you are on I guess, most of the time if you are careful you can achieve a fair bit in there. There was only one instance where a roaming squad of 5-6 with maxed out gear made it difficult. The good thing about killing high level rogues is you get a heap of xp and nice loot drops, although extracting that gear can become difficult :)

    The dark zone seems to be lacking NPC enemies for the number of players in there at times.

    Well, guess my bad luck then, because I got ganked every time I had an item. Never got a chance to extract anything.

    I had a blast, I found the game to be fun, I played mostly co-op with a real life friend of mine. I too also found the DZ not so bad at night Oceanic times, managed to get a bit of gear. During the day was abit intense with the usual 13 yr old codders doing there thing. I did liked how it shows your Uplay friends on your map in the DZ, I managed to see C4 there :cool:. Overall i'm happy with it so a pre-order is looking pretty certain now.

    I didn't play too much as I already have it on pre-order on XB1 and didn't want to have to trek through the same few hours of the game when the release comes. From my limited experience, it was at a minimum good enough to want me to keep my pre-order.

    Reading reddit, appears that the PC version has been hacked using a very simple method and various cheats are now being employed, so beware in PvP. Hopefully these are addressed before release.

    Had some fun last night with Ric. We got trapped at one point in a snow storm. The graphics are fantastic, couldn't see 10 feet in front of us.

    For those of you that haven't been able to see how good the weather effects can be, check this out. Towards the end you'll see a blizzard come in and the detail on things like hats and shoulders with snow gathering is fantastic.

    Another great effect is sunset, creates the best glare i have ever seen in game good luck looking down an alley that is facing west (or east in the usa?).

    Also:
    Beta Intel | Forums

    Beta feedback polls takes 30 seconds to respond to them all

    Well had a quick go this morning, really liked it and went and pre-ordered it ;)

    Will there be a TOG division set up in the forums for it ?

    Now getting " failed to contact key server " from steam when trying to play beta.

    Edit*

    Looks like it may have something to do with if you pre-order with the beta already in your steam account

    Just played a bit of this also, looks interesting. Would be a good game to play with people. A guy joined me but sounded Asian as I couldn't understand what he was saying haha then just lost him after a bit

    Was gone for 2 weeks for work. Needless to say this weekend has been family time.

    You guys will need to post your thoughts and any improvements on this beta over the last one.
