Downloading client now! Thanks!! =)
Got it up and running and everything was nice and enjoyable - until it suddenly killed my PC! Black screen with the sound going krrrrrzzrrzzz really loud. Had to turn of the PC on the back, couldn't ctrl-alt-del or anything..
Gonna give it another try - controls feel good.
Had an invite. Downloading now.
Yeah I had a lot of fun yesterday, feels really nice. Had to stop playing though as the lag got too much late afternoon.
Lots of good ideas implemented pretty well. The thing that stands out for me is how great the jetpack system works - I do enjoy jetpacking out the way of a big fuckoff enemy and shooting them in the head as I fly over them
The lag did make the game unplayable though so hopefully it's mostly a stress test at the moment and this will improve.
If I get anymore invites I'll let peeps know in here...

Had a crack at this over the weekend. It looks pretty, but the beta server felt very empty from a PVE/crafting/item shop perspective- I think there's currently about six proper missions in game, then it's running around finding control points.
There are other odd things like being able to craft a vehicle for one mission, and that's your lot for vehicles, unless you're a founder member.
I played a couple of PvP TDM matches, which felt a lot like Unreal Tournament (jetpacks, fixed health/ammo/damage multiplier spawns), and more importantly I didn't suck too hard at it. All in all, not bad for a FtP going through a 'proper' beta.
...and the new PvE patch has brought in some event' type missions and lots of graphical polish. Servers are still US based, but I haven't noticed any lag for open world stuffs.
Even though I'm probably talking to myself in this thread, I've got a couple of beta invites to give out. Let me know if you want one.
We have keys for this weekend's beta over on the homepage.
The beta weekend starts this afternoon at 6pm and runs until 6pm Sunday.
Had an invite emailed to me the other day, signed up ages ago but was ignoring previous ones as I didn't really know what the hell it was, just heard it was a good F2P. Having watched a few vids I'll be preloading that MMO shooter goodness this evening.

Anyone has an invite for this? Thank you.
Impressive. I really like it so far, haven't explored too much so not sure how 'evil' the microtransactions are but it looks good, the shooter-style combat was a good call and it seems to have plenty of potential.
Going to stop playing now and wait for release I think.
Yeah I've put about 10-12 hours into the beta so far, but think I'll leave it till release too. Good fun for the most part, needs a lot more content (though that should fill out for at least release if not sooner...).
Oh and playing on my own, and not had too much trouble linking up with randoms to do a certain mission or mining trip. Can see the potential for a regular group of players having a blast though!
I'm liking the whole resource mining thing and the girls you speak to look hot but a bit less so when you see them in the flesh so to speak. Looks like it could be a decent fully-fledged multiplayer shooter as well in the PvP suite.
Can't stop thinking about it tbh.
If at the end of the weekend beta, the flavour still lingers, give me a shout- I still have two 'permanent' beta invites to give out- pm me.

Started playing tonight, seems pretty solid. I am completely new to both F2P and MMOs so am a bit confused as to what I'm doing, but there is tonnes to shoot, the game feels solid, and its very pretty. Happy!
If anyone else needs or wants a key I have five available, also been in beta for a while now am up to tier 2 dreadnought/recon frames if anyone needs a hand.
