Thought it might be of benefit to list all the things that we're aware of that are planned to be added to the game that may or may not be introduced in the Beta phases. It may help new people to see what is planned so they don't need to create a question thread asking if X will be added.
Please post anything you don't see here and I'll update this post.
Please only post things we know are going to be added and not things that you hope will be added (Post here for that).
These aren't in any particular order currently but if we receive a road map of sorts I'll order them in expected release order.
This isn't a definitive list of things that will definitely appear in Beta. Some things may slip or not appear. This is just a list for informational purposes so people have an idea of what to look forward to/answer questions about what "may" be added in the two Beta Phases.
Colour code is Green for stuff that we've seen in newletters/dev diaries etc.. and can be treated as 100% confirmed as being in the full game and could appear in Beta at some point.
Yellow for stuff that didn't make the full game and FD said nothing about it.
Red for stuff that we subsequently find out was supposed to be in the game but it turns out no longer will be added (none yet but it might change as we progress through Beta)
