As for the beta, it provides new Crusade gameplay, allowing players to manage their army and battle against the demonic hordes (though it’s still a work in progress). New side quests have also been added along with abilities and archetypes for some classes. Weather systems, mounts and much more along with the final UI have also been implemented.
Finnean, a talking enchanted weapon added through backer goals, has also been added along with dismemberment, improved character models for companions, a romance with Daeran and much more.
