Half of H1Z1 was supposed to be launching on September 20th, but much like the game's console plans that has been rolled backwards. The developers are keeping King of the Kill in early access for a bit longer, although the game will still receive a very large update on September 20th. When will the game actually launch now? Who knows?
Moving on to other beta news from the week:
- Eternal Crusade is smashing its way into launch on September 23rd, complete with a big pre-launch patch to accompany the change in status. PvE is coming back, lots of balance is being addressed, there's all sorts of fun stuff to entertain players in the works.
- The latest addition to the swelling survival sandbox category, Osiris: New Dawn, is hitting early access on Steam on September 28th. If you had been eagerly awaiting another game of this style on Steam... well, you'll have one more, although you seem to have already had a variety of options.
- Atlas Reactor is hitting launch itself on October 4th, with headstart planned to start on September 30th. It's a busy month for early access and launches, in other words.
- AdventureQuest 3D joins the ranks of games launching or functionally launching in the near future with its plans of open beta in October. It's a pretty quick turnaround for the game.
- Boy, is everything launching? Not quite; Aeria has delayed the localization testing of Bless for the future. More changes are coming to the title, but the developers want to make sure that the game is in an ideal state to be a long-term success.
And you know there's a whole list down below full of games in testing or remarkably test-like states. Do let us know if something in there slipped between phases without letting us know, will you? Usually it's some rascally localized free-to-play game that quietly launched without saying anything, those lovable scamps.
