What makes it different from the full version of the game that will get released later in November is the number of bugs that you might encounter during the gameplay.

Also, with the feedback from the players during the two week BETA period, there will be changes made to the club drafts that the developers of the game might have overlooked as well as to other areas of the game, such as GUI, 3D match engine etc.
