Could you describe Pantheon as a game about standing in place with other people and slowly leveling up? Maybe, if you were being reductive, but there’s a lot more to the game to be shown off. Case in point, the game has some elaborate crafting that has been shown off in the most recent development stream. See? There’s more than just grinding in groups!
More beta news and previews from the past week:
- The world of Book of Travels is not altogether safe, which necessitates showing off the threats players will be dealing with in the full game.
- Ashes of Creation has shown off its new tanky archetype for anyone who wants to take the abuse of enemies but not in a weird way.
- Craftopia continues to have bulky updates added to the title, with the most recent patch adding in spears and snowy biomes.
- Last but not least, as Magic Legends approaches its open beta, the development team is working hard to hype people up. Hype costs one colorless mana, one blue mana, and one red mana.
But wait, there’s more! If you act now – or later, really – you can also check out our list of games currently in testing just below. And you can let us know if something is missing from the list in the comments, as well as whether or not any of these games changed into a full launch without us noticing all sneaky-like. Or you can just let us know about the betas you’re currently playing.
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.
