Betawatch: Peria Chronicles is actually heading to beta, gosh

YES IT HAPPENING WOO

This one’s personally important to me. Peria Chronicles is a game that looked very interesting to me from the moment it was revealed and has continued to look interesting subsequently, or at least it did while receiving absolutely no updates whatsoever. I was optimistic about it despite that fact. And it’s actually entering its first test phase! It’s all been sort of justified!

Of course, the game could still be awful, but hey, let’s not dwell on that and instead move on to other beta news.

So that’s the week, and let’s get on with the list down below. As always, let us know if something changed test phases or whatever without us noticing! It’ll bring you good fortune, possibly.

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.

You can take rend off your list. It’s launched… Technically. DayZ is vaporware. You can take that off as well.

Peria Chronicles looks pretty cool, but I can never really tell with these Korean MMOs. (It is Korean, right?) They look awesome in screenshots and videos, but then the actual game ends up being a hot mess of half-baked mechanics, horrible storytelling, poor animations, and convoluted interfaces.
