I can already tell I'm gonna need to find a good group to play with. I hate teaming up with randoms in objective based modes. I've played 5 competitive matches, going 1-4 so far because no one balances the team or tries to work together.

Always an issue in FPS games though.

How many players per team and is it like a death match type or just team up and kill

They only have an objective based match type on two maps for the competitive part of the open beta. You basically have to escort "minions" (AI controlled bots, basically, that stay on path and only stop to engage enemy players/minions)... gotta escort them to a point on the other teams side of the map. The team gets points based on how many minions get into the checkpoint.

It's not like COD or Battlefield at all really. It's like Borderlands suped up for easy access multiplayer. Everyone has shields and/or hit points... so you gotta shoot people a lot to kill them. It's not too bad though, if you run into a group you can easily get dropped in a few seconds.

What makes it fun is that all the characters play in totally different ways. You get a standard attack and a secondary, plus two abilities, and an ultimate ability that typically does huge damage and has a minute+ cool down.

Competitive is 5 vs 5. Story mode is full on co-op with 3 or 5 players... it's actually fun too. Lots of sarcastic humor.

I think it's going until the 18th and then the game drops May 3rd.

It's free for everyone. Don't even need PS Plus to play it. I'm not sure about Xbox Live since I only have a PS4, but I'm assuming it's the same.

Although I didn't have a clue what was going on, it was pretty fun. Im mad that I was getting kills and only got credited for assists. 

Only thing I dislike is the amount of time it takes to make and start a match and the time length. Other than that it was pretty cool

I played the competitive part like 3 times before I figured out wtf was going on lol... it doesn't really explain it too well, but it's simple enough once you figure things out.

The kills/assists thing can be frustrating. Unless you play as one of the heavy damage dealing characters like Rath and some others, you'll probably damage them enough for someone who is them to come in and clean up. It's all good though because the support characters are crazy useful to the team and actually fun to play with.

The time between matches is annoying. It's not as bad as Halo was at times but yeah... kinda takes too long.

Yeah outside of the time lengths it was pretty fun. Not on the same level as plants vs zombies but it was fun.
