Remember when Riot Games was all like “ha ha, we’re going to announce all the titles ever, eat that?” Pearl Abyss looked at that as a challenge, and it went and announced… well, all the titles. Seriously, so many announcements. Plus, Black Desert Mobile launching on December 11th! It was an abyss of pearl week up in here.
Other beta news was pretty quiet, but some still took place. To wit:
- There’s a build calculator out now for Torchlight Frontiers, if you want to know how to make yourself be awesome. Or awful, if you would prefer that.
- With both Ship of Heroes and City of Titans having held tests of their character creators, the studios behind both games shared the results with fans.
- The battleground mode for Hearthstone is now in open beta, for those who don’t still feel a surge of anger at seeing that name in text.
- A mobile version of Granado Espada is on the way as well, if you want… you know, that title but mobile.
And that’s some beta news! You want more titles? Hey, hop on down to the list below wherein we’ve got our current list of things in testing. If something is missing from the list or has jumped test phases and we missed it, let us know in the comments!
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.
