    Well, I guess beta testing will be available in fall or early winter, since the game is supposed to be released at the end of this year...

    It looks that I am active member. Is it mean that I am already in the first line? ;)

    I have no information on a release date of the Beta, but they have stated several times in this forum that they will not release it until the game is as complete as possible. I believe this is good news for all of us.

    Good gaming all,

    No sorry, as I stated, I have no information on the date. Just that it will come out when its ready and not before its ready. Could be a day, Month, or 6 months. No one knows.

    Just play the old games while you wait for the beta to start. I am sure even if it starts they are not going to select too many people at first. Like all betas they will start with a few chosen ones and then open it up to more people. Telling us a date doesn't make a difference.

    So, when we will test these cheese and wine or game ? In 4Q 2015?
    Patience of course is well come, but fine cheese, fine wine as well as fine game needs some earlier tests I suppose.

    Probably at the very beginning of q4 and release will be for Christmas.

    Do not you think that such time is too late for beta testing?
    Beta tests in three month to realise date it could be too little time for improvements.
    Are you suggesting that they are so perfect devlopers that they do not make any mistakes?

    Hi all, well im a big fan of Cossacks series, waiting for release, and REALLY HOPE it will not become another commercial fake of great old games (for example what happened with Stronghold series)

    Wish you good luck GSC!

    Dude when the beta drops the game is 80-95% finished all they need to do is do some balancing work and this does not take long to do.

    Not in my experience. As a learning developer myself I have played many betas. Most betas in which I have been involved are about 3 month before release. So around the beginning of q4 would be fine. Maybe a month before or a few weeks before, but around that time. However, this a wild guess as each dev team have their own ways of doing things.

    Dude do you think that new engine which their promised for this game will not include any bugs? Can they make all needed improvements for the game in three month? Balancing glitches are not only issues which they can meet in the beta tests I suppose.
    You are very optimistic, but I am not. Looking at their past games they always included some glitches, some bad balancing, some bad represented units, weapons etc. Many of these things could be easily found and improved in well executed beta tests. However these needs more than three month without a doubt.

    As much as I'm not a fan of day one patches and its ilk, with GSC mentioning that other nations will be added later after release, it also means that hopefully there will be a bigger focus on balancing/bugs between the added content.
