1. How long will the download take?
2. Will the User Interface be the same as Alpha?

1) I can't answer that. Probably a long time, because a lot of people will be downloading at the same time. Hopefully they give an option to upgrade the alpha client, but it seems unlikely right now.

2) Most likely 99% the same UI. Possible changes could be included, but no more than in the average patch.

1) Pretty much impossible to answer since it depends on your internet speed as well as the load on the website at the time of you downloading. :)

2) I think the UI is actually in a pretty good spot for closed beta so most likely there will "only" be bug fixes this week. But who knows, maybe CZE will surprise us. :)

I'm hoping client is made available via torrent as well and is released today for download :)

I'm assuming the link on the Beta page is still the alpha and not the actual Beta client?

I'll try it tonight anyway :)

Despite downloading the installer from the beta page and installing it's still saying 'Welcome to Hex: Shards Of Fate Alpha' on the patch screen.....I'm confuzzled.

We're probably playing on a version close to what cze is working on, but you never know they could be on a version a month ahead of alpha client.

Considering they'll (at some point) start to incorporate quite a few additional features, there is a good chance that the client is "totally" new. By that I mean that it revamps the management interface but uses the same in-game part.

Maybe it'll even include The Arena?

But as with everybody else, that might just be wishful thinking.
