i am just wondering if the final game will be patched to the beta i downloaded. i know that i may have to purchase it, but i hate to have to redownload or get a physical copy if i don't need it

I have never heard of a beta that was patched to the full game. Sorry, bud, you're gonna have to redownload.

the only beta that rolled into release for me was ESO. most of the time changes are made to the game as well as the client.

as long as i know, Guild Wars 2 was patched to the final version from the beta versions... the same counts with Heroes of Newerth... so i dont think its something unusual or impossible... but they already said we will have to redownload final version of The Crew

There will be changes before release, so yes you will have to download again.

This means i must download again these 15 GB???NOOOOO my Internet sucks.

If you have really slow internet, it maybe worth checking into the retail disc version?

Does that mean we should uninstall the beta we have? Isn't there going to be a beta any time soon? so I think we should keep the download right now, once the servers are up we can re-download any patches. Once the game releases, I assume it will be called "The Crew" not "The Crew: Beta" so its safe to re-download or purchase the disk version of the game.

thanks for the reply, i am probably going to get the retail disk since i do not want to download again
