F1 2018 BETA?

Hello, Was wondering if you could give us any idea about when the Beta will be about this year (If its even happening) and what we can expect compared to last year.

Thanks, Cam

    If it’s not happening, they are shooting themselves in the foot big time...I’d hope we hear something circa the first race of the season.

    If it's a not a fully open beta then it's pointless as last years beta proved to be next to useless.

    Last years was very good actually. Except that the Beta online was better than the actual game.

    Indeed, I'm still wondering how MP Beta was better than the actual game MP...

    Anyway, since as far as we've heard from sources there was no YT-squad Beta, who knows - we might not get any beta at all again. I'm ready to be wrong, though.

    I Think will not get a beta this year for 2 reasons:
    1- The two closed betas (2016 and 2017) some idiots leak gameplays about the betas to get more views in Youtube
    2 - Codemasters offered jobs for proffesional testers and they dont need anything else for make the next game

    Well my original account was linked to beta testing, last post was in January this year, now everytime I try to log in it comes up with completly brand new codies account, why can't I log in to my normal account so I can then see if we are beta testing again this year, or do u get banned for sending message about reporting a fault which was a month old , strange world we live in ,

    Codies make the beta testers sign NDA's (I believe) so I'm pretty sure if it ticked them off that much they could've taken action against the person who leaked it.
    At the start of the race my rival said he would beat me, I said ' !@#*£ please' and then beat him by fifteen seconds.

    I Hope you right, and the people should know the rules if it participate in a close beta

    What's the point of wanting to be a part of beta testing if 1) they don't appear to listen to the feedback that's reported and 2) they just break the game with patches after release!
  • ChromaticChromatic Member, Drivers Pit Crew

    Make a few patches break the online and abandon support for the game. After the customer pay's another £45 at release only to wait standing idle until it's actually working in a reasonable condition. They should call themselves conmasters for all the use they are.

    How many different racing lines will you take

    Normally it’s the race weekend when @formula1game on twitter announces something or posts an onboard lap etc.

    No body said it wasn't good it was useless because when the full game released it bore next to no relation to what we had tested as a multitude of bugs appeared that just were not present in the beta build thus rendering the whole process a little bit pointless.Perhaps if the beta had of been open and more stress put on the game perhaps those bugs would of shown themselves earlier and might of got fixed but as was they weren't seen until release and some of them were never fixed.

    Last year we received the auto respond mail from codies on february. So i think that we're couple of months late.
    The congrats mail for beta tester confirmation comes about april last year.
    Maybe @Faya can let us know more news about that.
