Ah yes.

You don’t have to go questing for an adventure in AdventureQuest 3D. Wait… hold on. I’m sorry, that’s exactly what you do in the game. It’s right there in the title. Boy, do I look dumb. Yes, after a very brief delay, the game is now in open beta, so you can go questing for adventure as you wish all over the place.

But it’s not just adventuring and quests this week; there’s other beta news out and about. Isn’t that something?

Is that enough for you? Aw, heck, we’ll give you a full list of games currently in testing just below all the same, but don’t tell anyone. Or do tell everyone, we won’t stop you. Let us know if something hopped test phases without our noticing, that happens every so often.

As always, we consider an MMO to be in open testing if it features free, public signups and will server wipe prior to launch. An MMO is marked in closed testing if it’s running a private test phase that cannot freely be accessed by the general public; it’s usually under NDA as well. Early access and crowdfunded MMOs whose tests we deem legitimate will be included. So-called “open beta” soft-launch MMOs with cash shops, no sign of launch in the west, or limited interest for our readers will not be listed; we also do not list expansions, with occasional exceptions.
