I'm perplexed as to why the Mercedes car can't be shown...

...are they implementing something top-secret into the car? Perhaps the controversial DAS system?

...of course, probably not.

nah.. i don't think they do it

For those who haven't been in previous betas. The beta is completely different than the early version youtubers are showing. There's a high chance that in the beta the only available car will be the multiplayer car without teams liveries. Youtubers have all the tracks available, it's unlikely in the beta.

Beta testers are not allowed to show any gameplay. The function youtubers have is different. Beta testers test the game and give their feedback. Youtubers are there to give their feedback too but their main function is to promote the game. Their are part of the marketing, beta testers aren't.

That's why they are allowed to show gameplay in a certain order according to Codemasters marketing plan.

Youtubers don't have all the tracks available, i believe that we would have more to explore than they have as we will have a later build of the game compared to them

the beta will probably consist of 4-5 tracks the multiplayer car and a grand prix mode and online mode and ofc split screen or that's how its been for the last two years atleast I doubt there will be a major difference between the first week of beta and the YouTuber content that we are seeing maybe in the later stages of the beta we will start seeing new types of content that the you tubers haven't had access to.

Could just be they haven't signed the livery off yet.

could be as simple as this, but most of them seem to believe it’s gonna be related to DAS... the not sure if it even is the library as the ‘20 livery is present in the game trailer, so... yeah my guess it’s gonna be DAS

Could also just be that they don't want to show the full potential of the "best" car on the grid. Whatever the reason is I'm sure Codies have their reason for the secrecy.

I don't know if they have access to early versions till release or if it is time restricted. But for sure they have more access to game modes, tracks and features.

The Beta is less glamour and more substance. It has to be that way.

Usually in the Beta there are no liveries or cinematic stuff. Which is easy to understand since youtubers play a version of the game that is meant to be shown to the public.

Obviously Codemasters could have changed its Beta policy and content. Only time will tell.

So we can't tell about updates but for sure they will always have the best looking version.

Personally I don't think DAS will be in the game. Probably it would have been in the game. But without real life races we don't know how Mercedes will use it during the race.

Currently DAS is a big mystery even in the paddock...

I mean, I don't know how I will be even able to engage it unless Thrustmaster do some kind of mod!

What about controller users? 

"To engage the DAS, please rip off your D-pad now."

I suppose the only way to replicate it would be visually and coding the impact on car's performance. But there are so many implications: could the system eventually be developed in career modes with other teams? Would it break licensing rules? Plus it's already out of 2022 rules, so honestly I don't know if it worth it just for one car for a year or two...

You assume the trainee dev that gets this one might not be able to code it....

It doesn't sound that hard. I assume and hope that they have considered it for like 30 seconds and then abandoned the idea to focus on other things.

It's plenty of things and features better than DAS.

If we talk about Mercedes specific skills and designs I would prefer to see a well performed double stack or a "Vatteri it's James button".

yep I suggest keeping an extra eye on Codemasters Social channels around this time next year!

Or even becoming an active member here on the forums so you don't miss it!

I only found out about this place because of the beta and everyone has been great (except for repetitive questions about the beta), so even if I'm not selected, I'll definitely be hanging around here a lot more and hopefully getting into some good discussions once 2020 comes out.
