***Matrix Version***
Beta Game - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1dVFxgF7vu51jOplcie5ircBeE4fka9e1
Copy paste into - Default game location folder which is usually.... C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix\WarPlan

If you have the Matrix version I strongly suggest to do the following.
Create a new folder as such in the Matrix directory.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix\WarPlanBeta
Copy/Paste C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix\WarPlan ----> C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix\WarPlanBeta
Now copy paste the beta files over the WarPlanBeta directory

This way beta game files are separated from official in case there is a problem.
If you don't do this and there is a problem you will have to uninstall/reinstall.
BETA versions all have an expiry date of about 1 month ahead of their upload date.

***Game Scenarios*** - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nN74ov3dK1lIgqdo82iyQCUMz_Ispjru
Copy/Paste the scenarios into - C:\Users\"your user name"\Documents\My Games\WarPlan\Campaigns

If I start playing a game under one beta (e.g. against the AI), when that beta expires, would I usually be able to continue it using the next beta (and eventually the release version, when that comes out)?

The beta versions get updated very quickly so basically you will never hit the expire date.

Official version have no expire date naturally.

So if I started a 1.09 beta game vs the AI, I should be able to complete it without worrying about an available beta/release expiring, as long as I update?

Great! I need some practice vs the AI to try to get my head around both supply and naval operations properly, as am still not clear how these work.
