Betawatch: Camelot Unchained puts the numbers on the field

My authority as principal is total.

How many players and bots were on the field with the last test for Camelot Unchained? Not one. Not two. Not three. Not… all right, this list could fill up a lot of space, so let’s just cut to the punchline of having some 3500 players and bots on the field at once. That’s a lot of people! Or pixies, or whatever race they were.

Meanwhile, we say our farewell to the idea of beta testing or early access for Astroneer, which has now launched all official-like. Take to the skies, you beautiful creation.

And the betas, much like the beat, go on. Let’s talk some more.

And now, it’s time for all of us to go retreat into burrows and wait out the remaining weeks of the beta winter. (Seriously, that’s a thing now.) If you’re in a test and want to talk about it, of course, you can let us know down in the comments. You can also let us know if we missed something changing test states.

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.

CU is going to be insane. Heh. Can’t wait.

High hopes for The Division 2.

And, a new interest in New World, but I’m still worried about it turning into a gank box.
