The latest news is that backer builds will continue to come in every couple months until June 2019. What is the eventual scope of the backer beta?
I ask because, realistically, only the most die-hard fans will still be playing the same mission on the same handful of parcels over and over a year from now. But it’s important for the team to get useful feedback from backers throughout the entire process. Also, any major element (like the entire strategic layer) that doesn’t go through a few backer builds won’t be as well-tested as the rest of the game.
