What? Yes, I’m well aware that “bepixeled” isn’t actually a word, as well as the fact that the whole “pixel graphics” thing is just making note of those pixels being meant for lower resolutions and all graphics on a screen involve pixels. Guess what? None of that actually matters, Naïca looks lovely, and it’s in open beta. So there. Put that in your image editor and pixelate it.
There’s a bit of other beta news, too:
- Dead Frontier 2 has converted some more shambling dead after entering into its early access state, so that’s good if you’ve been eager for more zombie antics.
- Starbase, meanwhile, has had to push back its own early access to a later date once again, now aiming for some point in 2021.
- Last week we noted that Fractured started its fall alpha, and that currently means players are dealing with farming and mounts all over the place.
- Last but not least, Temtem has made changes to its radar for the rarer monsters you can collect.
A bit of a light week? Yes, we have those. But we still do have a list down below, and you can let us know if something is missing down there or has skipped test phases without us realizing it. Feel free to do that 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.
