Grab a MU Legend starter pack key from Webzen and Massively OP!

Have you checked out MU Legend’s open beta yet? Apparently you’re in a quickly dwindling group. Webzen announced today that it’s had so many downloads that it’s “opened additional servers dedicated to EU, US and SEA regions in order to provide space for everyone to play the game.” In fact, Webzen has granted Massively OP starter pack keys to get even more people in and playing. The starter pack includes three days of Platinum Service, a three-day Type A Costume, a set of three-day Constellation wings, and 10 Holy recovery potions.

Click the Mo button below (and prove you’re not a robot) to grab one of these keys!

Betawatch: Closers Online has a closed beta (November 10, 2017)

Here’s this week’s test of age: When you see the title of Closers Online, is your first thought along the lines of “help me, I’ve torn apart my insides” or “four years, no call, now you’re looking pretty in a hotel bar”? It really doesn’t matter either way; the game just entered closed beta, so you can buy a founder’s pack to get in whether you want to growl about losing yourself in bed or sing about stealing mattresses from roommates.

Meanwhile, we bid farewell to Mu Legend as it moves into open beta, which rhymes with “soft launch” in this case.

Other beta news? Not a whole lot, but it’s still there if you know where to look! Specifically, toward games in testing. That’s where to look.

  • After ages of tests and rumors, Lineage Eternal is being rebooted as Project TL, which is… we’d like to say a step closer to release? It’s not actually even in consistent testing, see.
  • The second week of early testing for Prosperous Universe apparently felt a lot slower than the first one in terms of gameplay. But that’s still providing lots of technical data, so it counts as a net win.
  • The plans are set for OrbusVR’s early access schedule once December rolls around, but it’s still in a beta state for the rest of November. There’s a plan, and that plan is important.

While the week may have been quiet (read: while the week was totally quiet), there’s still a whole list of games on the testing docket just below. If you’re curious, you can jump on down there and check them out, but you can also let us know about the tests you’ve personally been checking out down in the comments. And if you’ve seen a game on the list that seems to have changed states without us noticing? Do let us know with specificity, that helps us yank things from the list.

The Stream Team: Onward into MU Legend’s open beta

MU Legend opens its beta doors today, and ends its Halloween event. Did Massively OP’s MJ miss a Halloween celebration? The horror! She’s racing inside to see if she can catch any festivities. If she can’t, she can still check out what has changed in the game since the last time she played, which was the second closed beta. Tune in live at 5:00 p.m. to waltz into the open beta with us.

What: MU Legend
Who: MJ Guthrie
When: 5:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

MU Legend heads into soft launch today

Today’s a big day for MU Legend as it moves from the official realm of testing to the realm of launch. Sure, the game is calling today its open beta, but there will be no further wipes before the official launch and everyone can jump in right now. Plus, you can spend money on the game. So that’s a soft launch, and we’d like to welcome the title to launchville.

It’s a real place. We promise.

More new features like a 3v3 combat mode are slated to arrive in the game before the end of the year, and further features like territory wars are on the docket as well (although considering how much of the year is left, you will probably need to wait until 2018 for that). Check out the open beta trailer just below, or if you’re at home (or in a particularly relaxed workplace) you can just download the game and start playing. And then check back this afternoon, as we’ll be streaming the game on OPTV!

Betawatch: Star Citizen dazzles, delights, and declines dates (November 3, 2017)

There was a lot of stuff that went down at the most recent Star Citizen convention, although none of the things that went down there included a firm date for Alpha 3.0. (Because of course it didn’t.) Want to catch up? Well, the good news is that we’ve got all of that rounded up nicely right here. Don’t say we never did nothing for you.

Meanwhile, there’s other testing news to cover here.

Just like last week and the week before, we’ve also got a full list of the games we know of in testing (and of wide enough interest to be worth including) down below. If we missed a title or missed one of these titles changing states unexpectedly, do let us know; the more specific you are about it, the more helpful.

Mobile MMO Roundup: Flyff Legacy, Ragnarok Journey, MU Legend, Project B, and Archlord Awake

Whether it makes you want to seek shelter or embrace the winds of change, the era of mobile MMOs and spin-offs is upon us. Let’s check in with what’s going on with three of them today!

Flyff Legacy, a successor to the cute online RPG, launched on September 26th for iOS and Android. In this flying-empowered MMO, players can take on the role of a Mercenary, Acrobat, or Magician and learn how to zoom around on a broom, conquer dungeons, collect pets, fight other players, and enjoy the “whimsical style” that is a hallmark of the series.

Another recent launch was Ragnarok Journey, the latest in the long-running Ragnarok Online series. The gameplay should be familiar to Ragnarok veterans, although the studio said that this version has upgraded graphics and offers a “fresh experience.” Players who jump into the launch period will be given a gift pack with a few helpful goodies to send them on their way.

Betawatch: Fortnite rolls out a free-for-all mode that’s free for all (September 22, 2017)

Remember when Fortnite’s whole thing was that it was going to be about co-op survival gameplay without any PvP aspects? That clearly didn’t last, as it turns out the game’s new Battle Royale mode is going to be free-to-play and seems to be getting an unexpected share of the game’s development. Oh, and the game accidentally turned on cross-platform play before turning it right back off, so that was great too.

In unrelated news, we bid farewell to Guardians of Ember as it has actually, like, launched now. It’s not in early access any more! It’s just access. Guild Wars 2 has also dropped its second expansion, and The Elder Scrolls Online has its latest DLC up on the test server.

More beta news? Yes indeed! Including titles you might not have seen this week otherwise.

  • All right, Pantropy, do you really think that the only thing you need to seduce someone into survival sandbox games is to include a bunch of stompy mechs? Because you are very possibly right.
  • The stress testing for MU Legend is running on September 23rd, which is the server equivalent of packing tons of college freshmen into a phone booth and daring them to fall out. Taking part will earn you 500 Bound Redzen for use in the future, so if the simple joy of stress testing isn’t enough, do it for the bribery.
  • You’ve missed the first alpha testing weekend for Closers, but there are several more weekends coming up, such as this weekend. Would you like a whole schedule for the next few weeks? You’ve got one.
  • The closed alpha weekends for Survived By are starting very soon, with several closed alpha weekends planned over the next several weeks. Exact dates aren’t given, unfortunately, but considering that there are only so many people being invited, that seems at least moderately sensible.
  • Around 350 players took place in the second OrbusVR closed beta, and you can catch up on the notes from that second beta right now. It’s a good chance to keep an eye on the game when you’re not keeping both eyes in the headset.

And as we always do, there’s a list of titles in testing and early access just below, because that’s how we operate. Did something hop to another phase of testing without letting us know? Fix that oversight in the comments. You can also use the comments for other comments, of course.

MU Legend’s new site, stress test, and open beta date

After a delay or two, MU Legend is confirmed to be coming our way this fall: November 7th, to be exact. The hack-and-slash MMO sequel finally “committed” to an open beta test release date this week now that quality assurance and localization has been wrangled.

You won’t have to wait until then to get a taste of what MU Legend has to offer, however. Webzen is planning a stress test for this Saturday, September 23rd. The team hopes that by jamming a ton of people into the game, it can generate enough “precious technical data” to help with the OBT launch.

The studio even makes this test sound somewhat awesome: “We cannot adequately test all worst-case scenarios virtually, so we will need the cooperation of our fans to push our server to breaking point.”

There’s a new official website to check out while you’re waiting, and you can also watch the stress test trailer after the break!

Mu Legend delays open beta from September to November

Those who are eagerly awaiting the open beta test for MU Legend got hit with some bad news with the announcement that the game’s open testing/soft launch is being delayed from September until November. The announcement explains that while the closed beta version was ready to go, the current live version in Korea has already gotten feedback from players and brought certain vital issues to light, leading to the conclusion that the release roadmap needs adjustment and refinement to produce the best possible version of the game.

Could the team just release the current beta version? Technically, yes, but you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and between testing, balancing, and localization, it would result in a sub-par rollout for the title. Instead, everyone is just going to have to wait for a couple more months before the open testing period commences. We’re sure you’ll manage all right just the same, though; it’s only a little more time to wait.

The MOP Up: State of Decay 2’s multiplayer mayhem (August 27, 2017)

The MMO industry moves along at the speed of information, and sometimes we’re deluged with so much news here at Massively Overpowered that some of it gets backlogged. That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss. Seen any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!

Maybe you’ll discover a new game in this space — or be reminded of an old favorite!

Betawatch: Delays always win (August 4, 2017)

We realize that some of our readers are a bit younger, so we’d like to introduce you to a universal truism of life: Delays always win. Everything goes wrong and nothing ever works right. Depressing and harsh? Yes. But considering that Star Citizen has delayed its 3.0 testing once again and ARK: Survival Evolved has pushed back its official launch to August 29th, can you say we’re wrong?

Other beta news has also happened, though. Some of it not delay-oriented at all!

  • If you’re wondering about all of the features that MU Legend will have at launch, you can watch a helpful video explaining its core features in a quick and easy-to-view format. That should be nice and straightforward.
  • Free-to-play open beta for Dreadnought has begun on the PlayStation 4. All the spaceship-based deathmatch action you could possibly ask for.
  • The development on Camelot Unchained is steaming toward its first beta at full tilt, so that should happen… when it’s ready. At some point before the heat-death of the universe, hopefully this year.
  • Rebuild testing for Bless Online has started as well, albeit in a language that one may suspect most of our readers do not read or speak. But at least it’s making forward motion, which is heartening alone after a winding process of back-and-forth up to this point.
  • There’s also a new update for Line of Defense that’s focused almost entirely on underlying technology rather than actual in-game content. You can be sure that this is a vital step in the process of making a game work, of course, and thus no one would ever criticize a game for such updates.

Is that a list of beta tests in below the cut, or am I just happy to see you? It’s both! I’m happy to see you in an allegorical sense, of course, because I’m not actually watching you right now. But it’s nice to see readers, and I’m sure you’ll help us all keep feeling happy by sharing your own beta stories (or sneaky phase changes for betas) in the comments below.

Betawatch: Albion Online gets ramped up for launch (July 7, 2017)

It’s really just about time for Albion Online to launch, isn’t it? Less than two weeks to go, now, so the title is winding down its beta on July 9th in anticipation. That also means certain founder packs will no longer be sold after Sunday. There’s a big beta finale planned, though, so don’t worry that it’ll pass without incident.

Of course, betas on a whole aren’t hitting any sort of finale. Look, we’ve got more news about them just below.

And yes, Virginia, there is a list of games in testing just below. Did something slip into a new test phase or tacitly launch without telling us? Then please, let us know in the comments. Or talk about betas you’re involved with, that’s also cool.
