As promised, the Wasteland 3 backer beta went live today. inXile announced the news with a brief Fig update:

The Wasteland Backer Beta is now live on Steam! To those of you who backed the game at the Early Bird ($25) or higher tier, you'll have received an invite to claim your Beta key from CrowdOx (be sure to check your spam!). For more information on the Beta, how to play, and how to give us feedback, we highly recommend checking out our last Backer Beta Fig Update.

The Beta offers a look at the first few hours of the Wasteland 3 experience, from the game's opening cinematic, through creating your characters and establishing a base, to your first steps into the deep and reactive narrative of a post-apocalyptic Colorado.

If you're not in the Beta we highly recommend checking out press coverage from around the web, as well as livestreams on Mixer and Twitch. In fact, we're going to be joining Mixer on the official Xbox channel at 1pm PDT later today, March 17! Join our devs as they join a casual stream and answer your questions.

Thank you to all the backers to which this quite literally would not have been possible. Thank you for your patronage and passion, and we look forward to finishing the game and getting it in your hands.
There is indeed a good amount of press coverage. Journalists seem to be impressed by the game's exceptionally brutal opening sequence, in which the Ranger convoy to Colorado is ambushed by a bloodthirsty cannibal clan. The previews also include details about the skill and perk systems, which weren't available in last year's alpha build. Here's a list of them:

The Wasteland 3 backer beta is available to all backers, so there won't be any shortage of gameplay footage on YouTube. In addition to today's livestream on the Xbox Twitch channel, there will also be a talk about the game tomorrow at Microsoft's Game Stack Live developer conference.
