After the title screen, when you choose a ship you may see the following error message stating, "You have a different version […] Please reinstall the game."
If you see that message, you do not need to reinstall the game. The closed beta test starts January 15th @ 15:00 JST [check schedule]. On that same day, there will be a patch that will enable you to login to the servers once they are up. In the meantime, please wait until January 15th to download the patch.
