    This is what I've been wondering about.
    I'm not sure I will preorder, but if only preorder-ers get the beta, i will DEFINETLY buy.

    Yes, you have to preorder to get a beta invite. The beta isn't free.

    If you Pre-Order the game, you get into Beta AND the official release.

    (Note that the game has not entered the Beta Phase yet)

    Woops too late :p

    Don't think of it as preordering think of it as paying off your copy of the game early

    only mode to have acces in beta is buy the game now with the preorder

    I think they were asking if they don't buy right now, during preorder, will they have to wait until the full release to buy the game and have access. Not if they can play for free. ? At least that's how I read the question.

    doesn't matter how you take it beta is promised as a preorder bonus keyword preorder . think of it as going to work every day if you dont do jack except sit with your thumb up your rear all day then you one day ask your boss for a raise do you think your likely to get it most likely not

    in this case i cant give you the bonus if you dont fit the criteria aka preorderig

    so it boils down to he/she has to preorder if they want to beta

    Well it's been stated by Tiy already that 'BETA' will be coming directly to Steam, without the preorder bonuses. Here's the question from the AMA:
    So actually if you purchase from Steam once it's come you'll be able to have early access.
    Hope that helps!

    Yes. This. I don't want the game free. I'm not THAT cheap. Also, thanks for the answers

    Isn't that wrong? I thought I read somewhere that tiy himself confirmed that we can get the beta after the pre-order (offc not for free).
    The only downside might be that it will be slightly more expensive.

    No and Yes. If you want to get into Beta you MUST buy the game, its recommended to do it know since the price is cheaper. Once the Pre-order is over the purchase method will be in both steam and the site (Hopefully), but the game will cost full price (About 20$ maybe).

    Edit: In both occasions you will end up buying the full game anyway.

    I'd pre-order now but I'm focused on putting things together towards Tier 4. Can I just pre-order then upgrade it later???

    No, you can't.
    But what's the difference?
    Just wait 'till you've "Put things together".

    You can technically (through refunds), but if you plan on buying tier 4, purchase it when you are able.
    As the Starbound team will get double-charged by Paypal/Google/Amazon. (Extract from FAQ Notice)
