Closers invites players to take part in new challenges at the planar gate

If you’ve got a need for some new challenges in Closers, possibly of the planar variety, you’ll get plenty out of the new Planar Gate challenges asking for players of level 73 and above to take on some raid fights. You’ll need a group, of course, but you can get new gear and accessories, so it’s all good.

“But I play Tina most of the time,” you muttered, “so I can’t get to 73 or above!” But you can now, friend, because this update also raises Tina’s level cap to 75. Now everyone wins! There are even some new outfits for Tina in the Academy bundle featuring all of the glasses you could want for one character.

The update also includes login bonuses to give you a taste of what’s available in the aforementioned planar raids as well as more costumes, new crafting options, and so forth. And you can enjoy all of this today, which means you need not sit around waiting for the patch to arrive. You may have to wait to go home to play it, but no one can really help with that.

Closers announces Tina as the winner of its next playable character contest

Remember when Closers asked players to decide on its next playable character? The votes were tallied, and Tina is joining the roster on April 3rd. So you’ve got just a week left until you get to play as Tina. Who is apparently a battle robot that has harness the energies of Phase Power and has served as a trainer for many years, but she’s now moving out into the field.

Sometimes backstories like this are more interesting than anything else you’ll actually see in the game.

Her combat arsenal consists of sniping and accessing imaginary space to summon weaponry, as you do. Fans who were hoping for the rather unfortunately named Harpy should take heart that she’s not much further out than Tina; she’s just going to have to wait for a bit longer due to losing the vote. But hey, if you were hoping for a robot wielding imaginary weapons, you got your wish.

Grab your free skins in Closers’ brand-new Pandimensional update

Closers fans are being kept busy today thanks to En Masse’s latest endeavor. The latest patch is called the Pandimensional Update, and it’s got everything: buffs, new cosmetics, rocket wings, a level cap bump to 75, more potion crafting, a small plum (!), and alternative versions of all the classes.

“The alternate, pandimensional Closers have come over to our world! After a brief (but heated) debate, the Closers are turning to their peers to settle the score! Players will be able to put in a vote every two days in two different polls, culminating in the announcement of the best boy and girl. Once voting has ended, every player will receive a code for a free in-game poster, featuring the winners, that they can place in their housing areas.”

Do note that the Pandimensional skins are free; you just have to manually change your character skin to grab them. They’re available only through April 2nd.

Closers asks fans to vote on its next playable character

Are you Team Tina or Team Harpy? By the blank stares that you are giving us, we are guessing that you’re not playing Closers are the moment. But you could be — and then you might become invested in the next playable character to be added to the game.

Right now, En Masse is running an in-game event through which players will be able to influence the choice of a new character. Through March 14th, players can craft either a Tina or Harpy token by accomplishing various in-game tasks, and then use that token to cast their vote. If this isn’t enough election thrills, players can also craft 8-bit masks to wear because this is how it’s done in video game politics.

The two characters won’t merely be cosmetic variants of each other but will feature different playstyles. Tina is a gun-toting marksman while Harpy uses kinetic playing cards. The winner will be revealed on April 3rd.

Closers posts development roadmap for the first half of 2018

The flashy and colorful action MMO Closers is going to work hard to keep its players interested in the months following the game’s release. En Masse posted a development roadmap this week that takes the community through all of the updates planned for the first half of this year.

So what’s on tap? The game’s next playable character, Nata, is joining the roster to be followed by the announcement of another character coming down the pike. The studio also is working to refit the Sky Ship area for sometime in March.

Then in the April through June window, you can expect to see an April Fools Day event, the addition of the Wolf Dogs faction, a level cap increase, the Gremory Laboratory and Union Temp headquarters, and a Planar Gate raid.

Closers unveils its first new character, Nata

It’s time for a new member of the team to take the field in Closers, and the first new addition to the game’s playable roster isn’t exactly happy to be here. Apparently Nata is part of a rogue group, the Wolfdogs, who were just drafted without a whole lot of thought given to “do you want to fight stuff or not.” But he’s also got a pair of spinning blades and the requisite energy eruptions in the midst of combat, so it would seem that he has at least found his vocation.

Players can also look forward to upcoming community events to vote on the next heroes getting added to the game, because why be satisfied with what you have when you could have even more? The next vote will be between Tina and Harpy for a new playable addition. If Nata already sounds like all you want or need, you can check out screenshots of him in action just below.

Closers launches on Steam as Tiamat raid update goes live

Happy official Steam launch day, Closers Online! The episodic anime MMO’s Steam rollout is accompanied this week by a brand-new mega patch to boot.

“The Closers Launch update introduces the Dimensional Ops Center, where you can earn the most powerful gear in the game and challenge Closers’ very first Raid Boss: Tiamat,” says En Masse. Moreover, players will take advantage of a new enhancement adapter system that essentially adds enhancement socketing to gear; there’s a new pet awakening system so pets can journey up to level 50; and naturally, there’s a community launch event ongoing until February 14th.

Here’s a quick look at our coverage of the game as it ported westward, including our stream of the game and our hands-on at PAX West.

Betawatch: Sea of Thieves hits closed beta (January 26, 2018)

It was foretold, and then it happened. Sea of Thieves hit its closed beta this week with play anywhere functionality fully intact. The bad news is that beta hit back with some bugs, one of which has a workaround of requesting a refund and then re-purchasing the game. Hopefully extending the beta until January 31st provides a bit more time to fix these issues?

Ah, well. Let’s see if other games are navigating their betas decently. What have you got for us, magic list (it’s not actually magic)?

It’s nice to see that 2018 is both replete with beta news and with stories that are just plain weird (it’d be sad if we couldn’t call back to Steven Seagal on a boat, after all). So what about other beta stuff? We’ve got a list down below! Let us know if something on it is inaccurate, like a game that’s tacitly launched or something that we may have missed. It’s appreciated.

En Masse Entertainment announced the official release date of February 6th today, at which time the publisher will bring Closers out of open beta testing and into the live environment for good. This action-packed MMO that centers around a group of futuristic high school students going on adventures in Neo-Seoul.

As players move through the game’s narrative, they’ll eventually find themselves facing off against Closers’ first raid — which, in a coincidence, is also launching on February 6th. The Tiamat raid tosses players into a Nightmare World in a quest to put an end to the Queen of Nightmares. Get a look at the raid below!
