It’s finally happening. Legends of Aria is arriving in an actual launch state on August 6th, complete with a big patch to make it more friendly to people who prefer the PvE side of gameplay. That’s a good thing, yes? We certainly hope so, the game has had a long testing period at this point.
Other news is fun. Let’s get some more!
- Here’s another for the “launch” category as Citadel: Forged With Fire has announced a launch date of October 11th. That’s a little bit further in the future, but it still represents a noteworthy milestone.
- Remember Edengrad? We all thought it had been banished to the land of wind and ghosts, but it might actually back among the living after all! In a good way, not in the sense of a shambling zombie. Let’s be clear.
- Hey, another game is leaving early access; Pagan Online is moving into launch on August 27th. This was just the week to plan on launch dates, huh?
- Last but not least, Starfighter Inc does not have a launch date. It does have a new title, In the Black, along with a planned beta for this summer. Which is still forward motion.
And then everything launched and there was never anything more to write about when it came to beta testing, the end. Nah, we’re kidding, all of that stuff is in the future; right now we still have our list down below, and you can let us know if something needs to change its status or we missed something in the comments below.
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.
