This Isn’t What I Thought It Was

An open beta is typically a subset of the final product, but usually they will call a beta restricted to the multiplayer portion a "multiplayer test," as id Software did in times of legend.  The Heroes of Might and Magic V beta is restricted to the multiplayer mode, is what I’m saying.  Also, it utilizes Starforce copy protection.  Fileplanet only has an exclusive on the demo for three days, after which it will be available anywhere - I learned all this (and more) from the Beta FAQ on the official boards.  Sorta wish I’d known some of this stuff before.
