Halloween sinks its fangs into Tree of Life, Fractured Space, and Mortal Online

The avalanche of MMO Halloween events continues to thunder down over us, and we are digging as fast as we can to stay on top of all of the notices! If we get buried alive, well, ’tis the season for that.

Your cobwebbed tour begins in Tree of Life, where this upcoming game is throwing a Pumpkin Fest with spooky buildings, a broomstick mount, and some cosmetics to earn. The next stop is at Fractured Space, where the newly launched MOBA has added a Halloweeny character into the roster.

Finally, Mortal Online is taking advantage of the holiday to promote its newest school of magic, Necromancy. Check out the game’s patch highlights and Fractured Space’s new character in the videos below!

Betawatch: Star Citizen gets persistent (August 26, 2016)

Depending on your definitions, Star Citizen is already pretty persistent. For example, it’s already persistently crowdfunding, persistently putting out new ships for the price of a used car, and persistently drawing accusations of “scam” from people who don’t know what scams are. But its persistent universe got some love with the most recent gameplay trailer. Yes, there’s actually a game in there beneath all of the debates. It also passed another crowdfunding milestone, but as mentioned, that’s persistent.

Other beta news? Aw, shucks, why not. You earned it.

And there’s a list! A list of games in testing. It’s right down below. Let us know if something snuck a cash shop in without us noticing what was happening, or just share your thoughts on a current beta you’re enjoying. If you’d like to argue the fine points of terminology instead, we can’t really stop you, but it might not be a fun Friday.
