We hope you feel that your testing experiences in World of Warcraft: Classic have sufficiently reminded you of what the classic game felt like, because the game’s beta testing is ending early on July 12th. There will still be stress testing, but the constant test access will be gone, and you’ll be back to playing the game’s retail version. Or just not logging in again until August, that would make sense as well.
Meanwhile, the holiday made for a light beta week, but there’s still some irons in the fire, so to speak.
- Astellia is getting ready for its second closed beta test, although exact dates and times have yet to be determined. It will be very ready when it happens, though. Don’t expect it to take a month.
- Looks like Eternal Magic is kicking off its closed beta testing on July 17th, and if you don’t recall the title, it’s the one that comes complete with a beauty contest for the ladies. This is actually part of what’s being put forth as a marketing point.
- If you need a new anime MMO of some sort, keep your eyes on Blue Protocol, although you should perhaps wait for some actual information before you get too excited. Right now all we really have is the title.
- Lastly… there’s nothing we can say about Atlas getting a beta for its single-player mode that doesn’t wind up just restating that point. This is a thing that’s happening. It’s entirely real. I have nothing to add.
That sure was some news! You can also check out our full list of games in beta just below, and let us know in the comments if something skipped test phases without us noticing. Seriously, we appreciate that diligence.
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.
