I never got a chance to develop the third edition. As Jim said above, the current version(2nd ed.) is a fine game. Just jump in!
Whether you start with Utopia Engine or Beast Hunter, I'll leave that to you. They are each stand-alone games although they do share some mechanics. From a story perspective, the events of Beast Hunter happen a few weeks before Utopia Engine, just in a different region. But if your thought was to start on Beast Hunter while you wait for a new edition of Utopia Engine, you'll be waiting for a very long time.
That's all the information I needed. Thanks Nick! I have a feeling I'll be enjoying both games shortly.
