Betawatch: Hero's Song enters early access (November 11, 2016)

The crowdfunding campaigns for Hero's Song might have run short of their goals, but that didn't stop the game from reaching a state of playability. Seriously, the game hit early access on Steam this week. You can access it right now. Early, if you will. You get the idea.

And yes, there was other beta stuff going on this week. Let's look at it, shall we?

You know we also have our list of games just below for everyone who likes to follow all of the betas going on. At least, the ones we know of are down there. Did we miss something, either a game shuffling into a launch state or a game that's testing without us catching it? Do let us know down in the comments, we greatly appreciate it.

Winning Putt has launched on Steam

The bright side to a nice round of golf is that it's a game of skill and sedate strategy, along with a chance to make lots of references to Caddyshack. The down side is, of course, actually going to a golf course. But now Winning Putt has left the putting range of beta testing and driven onto the green of launch, so players can pick up their digital seven-irons and go to war with one another. Or however you play golf.

To celebrate the game's launch and its arrival on Steam, the game is offering players a special gift for each day's login until November 18th. You've still got a few days to pick up new prizes, so if you love the idea of smacking virtual golf balls around, we suggest you get in and get teeing. Or... driving? Whatever the verb form is for starting a golf skirmish. Match. Whatever.

Golf MMO Winning Putt increases its level handicap to 35

Despite how you may feel about golf or even virtual golf, hopefully the world can come together to agree that the upcoming golf MMO Winning Putt is not hard on the eyes at all. It's got content to back up those looks too, especially with its recent update.

The latest patch for the game has increased the level from 30 to 35, brought in new sets of clubs, offered more customization options, and introduced "demanding" quests. What kind of quests will you be doing in a golf MMO? Probably not "save the world" kind of activities, unless this game is aiming to be the raddest sports title of all time. Actually, the quests involve difficult challenges on hard courses, such as getting birdies out of bunkers. Heck, there are even quests on loading screens -- because why waste a second of a player's time?

Winning Putt is currently in open beta with no set launch date for the west. It's been out in South Korea for a while now.

Winning Putt is a free-to-play golf MMO in open beta, and yes, you read that correctly

We live in a world where Winning Putt exists. It is a golf MMO. There are no epic endgame raids against the Grand Wrath-Beast that lurks behind Hole #14; it's just golf. Golf with short skirts, flouncy female characters who offer exaggerated pouts on missed shots, detailed character creation, and classes. It's also in open beta right now if you don't believe that this is a thing that could actually exist in our world.

Players start out by picking either Driving or Accuracy as a class (more of a speciality), develop special skills via leveling and play, and explore seven different courses with unique hazards. If you've been longing for an online golf game with character progression and detailed social interaction... well, we don't entirely understand how you work, but we do know that this game is probably something you should download and try.
