It’s the same “problem” everywhere, different companies (and gamers) have somewhat different definition for these terms (“early access”, “beta”, “release”, “quality”, “multiplayer”, etc…), and some will think about a slightly different definition and misunderstood it. I even saw game devs writing down their definition of “launch” and “alpha-beta” stage to lessen the “whining” from players…
For some, they expect early access to be more like a “beta”, where almost every system is there just not finely tuned/polished, and that’s not what early backer builds are for PP.
To be fair, the trailer does give a bit of an impression that the backer build 3 is out. I’m assuming that their was a bit of miscommunication on this point (as opposed to the game being in early access in a general sense) in this thread.
i suppose that they even have BB 3 ready. I mean that they could share it. But probably they hunt all bugs which are crawling there, so people couldn’t complain too much about not polished demo release.
totally true, but just from the all the cool stuff you see in the trailer, I could picture someone, who might’ve not been into the early access, looking at it and expecting that BB3 stuff off the bat.
No intention to stir up anything at all or even affected by it in the slightest, just chiming in as I can understand how one might confuse this. Maybe a slide saying “New update! BB3! coming in November!”
You, sir, are totally right. I’ve backed the game after that trailer hoping to find all that stuff in early-access build. It’s a bit disappointing to see what BB2 has to offer. That said, I’ll wait patiently for BB3 no questions, but this trailer is kind’a clickbait.
