MMORPG sandbox Fractured pushed its way into its fall alpha this week, in spite of technical difficulties and a downtime outage on Wednesday that resulted in lost character progression for some players, but don’t worry because everyone who’s leaped in so far is being compensated with tokens to take the sting out. (Thanks for the heads-up, Panagiotis!)
- Bless Unleashed rolled into closed beta for PC.
- The unkillable Hellgate London is back as rogue server London 2038 has launched into beta.
- ArcheAge put the Rise of Nehliya update on the test server as of this weekend.
- Ashes of Creation gave players a peek into alpha one.
- Crowfall’s beta is preparing for The Revival patch.
- The Black Death swears it’s not dead.
Check out our whole list of MMOs in beta-esque states down 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.
