Early access is the new beta, apparently. QC Games’ co-op action MMO Breach will go straight from last weekend’s limited alpha test to early access launch — theoretically letting everyone in — in the span of just 11 days.

You’ll need to pay to get into the game on Jan. 17, though a full free-to-play launch is scheduled for later in the year. All options for pre-order packs can be found in the Breach shop, ranging in price from $24.99 to $99.99. You’ll need to pick them up before 11:59 p.m. CDT to secure all the bonuses.

Both Magicman and I spent some time in Breach over the weekend, with Magicman doing a First Look of his experiences. I’d say we’re both generally positive about the game, though there were a few hiccups in the alpha version we played over the weekend. Hopefully, QC Games can get everything on track during early access and have a swell F2P launch in a few months.

  1. Paying Early access tester = moan and groan testers, through no trials just game paying drones who have no idea what a test is, instead early access players just like rant about a game they haven’t really tested or trialled at all because they paid for it.

    Free Beta tester = Amateur/professional testers, that account the errors in a game through hard game plays of hours of trials through error capturing findings.

    There is absolutley no relationship between the two, as they do not match with the same skills of game play
