I’m really behind the times on this news, since this was announced about a week ago.
Great to see Frontier making the pre-Xmas release date, since this should help build revenue to support future expansions. However, I do share some of the concerns about just how ready and developed this game is. For me, it’s gonna be fun to play pretty much ‘as is’ (minus bugs), but for others it may not yet have enough of a ‘bang for the buck’. I’m definitely erring on the side of optimism, however, as I have yet to see how the storylines and missions pan out, and this could just make the game feel a lot more immersive.
We can expect pretty much what we find in the Gamma to be representative of the full release, so after I’ve spent some time in the current release (Gamma was released today), I’ll have a much better idea of what the full release will be.
