Betawatch: Bless Unleashed enters beta testing on the Xbox One

Blessed not be.

If you own an Xbox One and would like Bless Online Without Quite So Much Bless Online In It, you’re in luck! Bless Unleashed is testing on that console as of this weekend, so you can give that a spin. We tried it out back at PAX East and found that it did in fact have not quite so much Bless Online in it after all.

Other beta news? There’s a little bit!

A bit thin this week, isn’t it? Like someone snapped half of the games out of existence. You might be going to see a movie about that this weekend, but if you have the time to see if we’re still listing something in an incorrect test phase or you have other updates for us, let us know down in the comments! We appreciate it.

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.

edengrad’s last update was a “Stay tuned, we’re back soon” post 6 months ago, so that one is iffy, oh and the link for osiris: new dawn is broken

Hopefully the game runs better on more predictable console hardware. In spite of the bless controversy, I liked the combat systems and would like to see this one do well.

I’d be interested to see the difference between the base hardware and the One X.
