Did you guys pre order the game, or playing the beta through EA play subscription ?

Jumped in a game a bit earlier on Xbox. Game looks amazing, feels good to play too.

Only issue I saw was that most of the players were bots at the moment, guess this will improve when more players join. It's a bit jarring though having such a huge ttk disparity on the bots vs real players, I ended up dying a few times because I stopped firing too early because I was used to the bots ttk.

Just be aware that EA has a habit of having local servers during beta periods and then yanking the servers on release.

No pre-order on my end, I've just downloaded it. Prompts for Origin login. Currently going through the motions now but I think it's going to block me from playing until the 8th
Yup, it moans that you have to pre-purchase to access it

I bought a month EA access to play. Pretty good with SA servers. Still a couple of bugs here and there.

Downloading the Beta now in Origin. 18GB. Hopefully my gaming laptop will play it, otherwise it's time for another one.

Ahh okay, so for the scrubs out there that didn't pre order (including myself), we'll need to wait for the 8th October to play

Our timezone wasn't mentioned. I don't know if that has any relation to server locations.

I have stopped using Origin in favour of the new EA Play app. I find it more stable and doesn't lose my credentials every time I restart my PC.

Yeah that image sent weird messaging, thankfully we've got some local hosting.

I wonder, if feedback is too negative, if they'd Cyberpunk the game and delay to 2022. I'm enjoying it for what it is, but I see lots of negative feedback over on EA Answers etc.
