I'm assuming the beta is multiplayer only? No single player campaign in the beta?

It's multiplayer only. 2 maps. Although there's a 5 GB patch downloading now.

Is it going to be worth the 60 bucks?
Or should I ask, is it better than payday2 ?

Honestly if you're thinking about trying this game don't waste your time. I understand it's a Beta but this is not Battlefield. Make it dlc and charge 20$ for it , sure extend the life of BF4 a bit but at 70$ ? nope. To me this game feels like a mix of TF2 and Counter strike. The weapons feel clunky , the gamemode encourages camping , snipers are having a field day camping every single rooftops on the map. The mechanics haven't changed one bit from BF4, the interface is basically the same. This is a cash grab nothing more.

They effectively took Capture The Flag from BF3/4 and changed the flag into money bags and the flag point into an armoured truck. Then they took the expansive maps and outdoor scenery and put you in downtown (and poorly rendered at that).

All and all, it shouldn't carry the Battlefield name IMO. If I didn't know any better, I'd think this was some sort of cheap knock-off of sorts. It has elements of BF4, but with far less polish and a lot more tackiness.

If you want a cops n' robbers sort of game, I think Pay Day 2 is far better.

I'm sure the release will go smooth, or I really hope so for them after the flop that BF4 was but regardless of that it's not even worth the bandwidth to download the beta it's that bad. BF4 is totally playable now and still has 2 DLC's .
