We haven't sent out invites out yet, we'll make sure we let you know when we're sending them out via the forums and social media. They won't be too long though!

Message by Faya:

Hi FMPItalia and everyone,

A big thank you to everyone that’s applied for the Beta so far! The Beta invites have not gone out yet. We’ve got a lot of applications to go through and process, as well as a few other bits to sort in the background.

When we do send them out, I will let you know. Thanks for your patience!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




Discuss here about what you want. Are you excited for it or something? 'Cause a lot of people seem to be, even though I don't know why. Share the reason with me, if you want to. At least the forum is now active. When the sign-ups come, everyone just joins to try and get to the beta I guess.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For the people who still haven't seen the news:
Blog post: http://blog.codemasters.com/f1/04/introducing-the-f1-beta/
Beta sign-up: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/F1BetaSignUp

FAQ:
Can I join the beta?
Probably. The application should have all the requirements.

How many testers will get accepted?
I don't believe this was specified anywhere this year. Last year it was 300 per platform.

When will we hear who got in?
Usually we know when Codies send the emails.

Should I get some kind of confirmation when I send the application?
You don't seem to get any kind of email at least. After sending the application, it should just say "Thanks" or something in the website.

Do we get a confirmation email when we send the application?
No you don't. The application was sent if you got some kind of "Thanks" shown in the surveymonkey website.

Ask questions below and I add them here with proper answers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



I'll wish good luck for everyone who I think could benefit the game's development.
I'm sure if other news appears, someone else is quicker than me anyways.

Current Question: How long was your "Why do you want to be a part of the beta" text?
More questions can be asked in the comments, maybe I "highlight" one of them.

 How long was your "Why do you want to be a part of the beta" text?

Well based on previous years which I also participated in, I answered it like I was going for a job. Why should they pick me? What do I bring to make their game better that picking someone else won't achieve?

It would be nice of people could check first and see if there is a thread of their topic. Like this one, that way there is no need for anyone to put up 5000 threads that are the same. At the moment I come on to see if there is any news, but instead I have seen about 4  2018 beta threads and 7 what do you want in 2018 threads. It doesn't even take 5 minutes to have a look through the first 5-6 pages to see if the thread is there somewhere

But it's also up to the forum admins to merge double, triple, multiple threads. Not everyone is willing to look beyond the first page.

Hi @UP100 and everyone!

I’m going to declare this the Community Run F1 Beta Mega Thread for the F1 Games section of the forum. I am going to slightly alter the thread title, but other than that, leave it as it is.

Everyone, please post your F1 Beta questions and comments to either this thread or the one in the Announcements forum

Thanks all!

awesome Faya, could you give us a slight hint of something we can expect in the beta or new game?

In 16 I told them i wanted to Beta test because (paraphrasing...) I thought they couldn't be trusted with their own game, they were pretty ('s' word for excrement) at what they do, I work with testers and software devs every day, and thought I could help them out as I couldn't be worse than whoever was testing back then.

Seemed to do the trick back then...

I really hope to be in the list of those who will test the online part, had the impression last year it was not tested enough :p

I have signed up for this year's beta if i get picked for this one, I can give the most feedback back to Codemasters to improve this year's game more I'm so excited to see what they have done so far this this version of the game fingers crossed right? :) I'm only doing the offline mode only through 

I hope Codemasters give out the beta to the right people and I hope they don't try to spoil it like some did last year and we can give the feedback so they can get more content in F1 2018!

I've been on here everyday checking for sign up of next beta , even Jenny has said soon ,,that link you shared was on here but it said the beta was for 2017 beta and not 2018 beta, 
so any idea of what's going on here ,
beta is normally announced in latest news and announcements on this forum ,

I don't understand what you're talking about. All the links state F1 2018 to my knowledge. The beta was announced in the announcements category.

Are we supposed to get a confirmation email? I know they have our forum names in case but it seems a bit odd.
Sorry forgot to include that. How stupid of me. You don't get any kind of confirmation email.

E: Actually I have it in the FAQ but it's kind of hidden into a response.

I signed for the beta... but I doubt my chances as I am not active member here...

But I play F1 since childhood (gp4 or f1 challenge era) and I own and played every single F1 codies game released for PC. 

So it would be really nice to get something in return - as basically every year I pay for beta version of the game to wait till it get 4-5 patches.
