Here comes the beta for Dual Universe! And you’ll need to pay for it if you don’t buy an alpha-access pack before then; there will be a subscription fee for newcomers to the game’s beta, starting at just around $7 and with a variety of longer plans that offer a (very slight) discount. Well, at least it’s… being called a beta? That’s something?
Yeah, let’s just move right along to some bullet points, that tracks.
- Legends of Aria has finally left early access! We know, it was hard to remember that it was there. But it was! Now it’s not.
- Catan: World Explorers is going into beta in New Zealand, where people can walk outside without fear. Whether or not people are eager to do so for this particular title is another discussion.
- The Repopulation has a new roadmap, in that ongoing and frankly somewhat heartbreaking story. Now I’m sad.
- Last but not least, Mortal Online 2 has posted its own roadmap while making plans to sell a package for $2500. Yep. That’s a lot of money. That’s what we’re looking at.
Huh. This got more depressing than usual. Let’s all have a nice glass of whatever is less depressing and chill out with our usual ongoing list below of the various games in testing. And if you know about some games that are missing or ones that skipped test phases without us noticing, let us know down 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.
