Betawatch: Black Desert Online starts testing on the PlayStation 4

Here we go again, not on our own.

Console edition all the MMOs! Black Desert Online already made the leap to the Xbox One, a console with an installed base of four people and two demo kiosks in a discontinued Best Buy storefront, but the game is now moving to the PlayStation 4, which is owned by basically everyone who still buys game consoles. It’s a beta! An open beta!

Meanwhile, we bid our truest farewell to Legends of Aria, which has now moved into the launchiest state it can move into and upon which we declare “no take-backsies.” Moving along to other beta news…

Huh. We really can just be business-like about these, can’t we? Not very fun, I’ll pass. Let us know what you’re testing down in the comments, or let us know if something jumped test phases without us catching 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.

Yes, MMO gamers, you too can perform the unpaid quality-control work otherwise known as game testing! Check out Massively Overpowered’s Betawatch every week for a run-down of MMOs that are still on the road to launch, even if they appear to have set up a permanent residence in a shed called early access.
