I see I have Defcon beta on my games list and it is pre-loaded (Can't play it).

Will that beta be open for everyone or something and what it does have? I'm curious.

Well its weird, I actually own the original DEFCON, and the DEFCON-beta shows up, but when I check the properties it states its available for purchase, unless this is DEFCON 2 or something but I already have DEFCON.

Same. I own and have Defcon installed but there is Defcon Beta at the bottom of the list which states pre-load complete. What gives?

I'm tempted to say it's just an unintentional mistake, as I did a bit of googling and the only beta I could find was the one pre-release. The only news on Introversions website is about Uplink being 10 years old.

It'd be nice if I was wrong but I'm not getting my hopes up.

I have this too. Looking in the Steam files area there's a changes.txt containing the following:

===============
v1.43 (BETA)
===============

- Fixed potential exploit:
Fleets could be made to sail through land masses if sent to certain
hotspots around the world. (Eg subs could sail through America).
Only the Server needs to run this fix to prevent the exploit.

- Improved the way local IP is determined. Should help people who have
problems creating games on their local system.

Although the date on this file is from when I installed Defcon on this PC so I doubt it's related, but you never know.

If you take a look at the introversion news page, you'll see there is indeed a beta underway for an upcoming steam patch...

I cannot state the nature of the beta, but it appearing in your list was a bug that has been fixed.
Incidentally, some people who were in the beta received a "Defcon Beta Beta".

it has not been fixed, i was never in the beta and now it all the suddnely showed up in my library and it's driving me crazy.
