Betawatch: Hero's Song abruptly stops the music (December 30, 2017)

This kill-happy year of 2016 has claimed a lot of lives, and the last week has also killed another game. Hero's Song has been unceremoniously cancelled, with the studio shutting down and a call for all backers to collect refunds for any money invested.

NetEase announces Justice, an MMO four years in the making

If you have more than a passing interest in NetEase's upcoming Revelation Online, you should also keep an eye on another title that the studio has been developing for four years now. Called Treacherous Waters overseas, the martial arts MMO has been dubbed Justice for English audiences.

Justice is supposedly based on a Chinese novel and will contain plenty of martial arts-style combat and luscious eye candy. The first character from the game, a woman clad in red silk, was shown on a Chinese website and paired with a cryptic description.

We are still waiting to hear more on this MMO-in-the-making. A beta schedule for Justice will be revealed in early 2017.

To start your career as a future thief, you'll need to pickpocket an NPC to access this part of the game. Other than enjoying the thrill of getting away with stealing under guards' noses, players can benefit from Legerdemain by selling stolen goods for profit. Check out the video below!
