    ummm... there is always at least an alpha and a beta.

    I think the thing you wanted to know is if the beta playable to the public, which I say we don't know yet.

    There HAS to be a beta in developing a game, if I'm correct. The choice of them making it public is up to them.

    I'm assuming we're going to be able to play when Beta comes around.

    well acording to facebook (terraria page) the full game will be out sometime between may and june

    so a playable beta would be before the fullgame is out

    I thought I heard somewhere that a playable beta was going to be released before the full version, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    On the Terraria site, under the FAQ, it says the following,

    "Can I become a tester for Terraria?
    Not right now, and we're not revealing whether we're going to have a beta test release or not."

    Will there be a beta? Yes. Will it be released in beta? Most likely. The FAQ says in less than a few months (1-3) it'll be playable. I've never seen a game go from alpha through beta and finished in only 1-3 months

    So true. I keep saying that this game seems nicely polished for it to be in alpha. It still surprises me after watching the new LPs. We'll see what happens though. I'd love to see a beta release. My whole clan would buy it and tear it up for days! lol

    As much as id like to be able to play this game as soon as possible i dont want to see it do another minecraft, in that the devs have to sway under pressure from the loudmouth masses who are entirely unpleasable whether you do what they ask or not, while the polite mannered less self important players have to suffer for it. not to say community feedback isnt a good thing but what goes on in minecrafts community is just utterly nuts

    It doesn't HAVE to. It's really just convention.

    For my part, I really hope the beta won't be public. Atleast not completely public. It's always harder for the devs to filter out the more important messages from the community regarding bug finding and such, when there's a massive load of people whereof 70% just want to play the game for their fun.

    more people mean more bug finding = bugfixes

    it would be the smartest thing todo

    Don't forget that many people want the beta to be public just so they can play the game. They give a fuck about bug finding and such.
