    OT But the swiftness and efficacy of the student’s reaction would make Bruce Lee proud.

    LMAO! I think I watched the last 5 seconds 10 times.

    According to Game Informer,”2K also mentioned this morning that the third monster, Wraith, and the third group of hunters will be available in the beta. You can only unlock them for the test period by digitally pre-purchasing the title on Xbox One. The first two sets of hunters, Goliath, and Kraken will all be playable during the beta without the need for a pre-purchase. The beta will start players with tier one hunters and Goliath, with tier two and Kraken becoming available through play.

    For the retail version, you’ll be able to instantly access the tier three characters and Wraith if you have pre-purchased the game digitally on Xbox One. These will be unlockable for all players in the full game regardless of when and how you purchase. The instant unlock offer is exclusive to digital and Xbox One right now, though.”

    Thanks for the heads-up, Kenny!

    Pre-ordered digitally, and am downloading the game as I type this

    I really wish Microsoft had stuck to their original plan regarding discs and licensing. Ah well, my hard drive is nearly full.

    Ha ha! Herandar leading the charge. I want to try out the beta first. It’s the only way to be sure. 😉

    As regards the video, Turtle Rock had some fun with this. The hat and boulder put a smile on my face. 15 bucks for a character. Looks like they are serious about their approach to the DLC. Interesting.

      Suns, you might as well pull the trigger because rED, Grymmie, Zos, & myself have already pre-ordered digitally. Cancelled my physical pre-orders since the bonuses are the same on digital. Waiting for the beta to decide seems to be a moot point, but do whatcha wanna do.

      Understood. I didn’t know it had been decided. It isn’t a hard sell. I have been looking forward to this one for a long time. I just have concerns.

      Just as a warning, I suspect the map downloading times won’t be much improved. I am just hoping that the matchmaking is at least quick.

      Finally, I have to work Saturday until 6:30 pm, so I am not going to be able to really try it out with the gang until my Sunday afternoon.

      By the way, I can’t remember, do all pre-orders get to try the beta? If it is only the Preview members, then 3GN will have to wait until February.

      Pre-orders definitely get into the beta. No definitive info on others, but there was some talk about about those that participated in the Alpha get access. FYI: Major Nelson has just confirmed that everyone with an XBL Gold membership will have access to the beta (no code needed).

      Since I’m mostly a vegan, I’m gunning for the Vegan Police achievement.
