Remember Skydome? You should; we just talked about it earlier this month! It’s a new sort of MOBA and tower defense hybrid from Gamigo. Anyhow, the game is starting its first closed beta test later this month on April 27th, and players can register now for a shot at getting into the closed beta. Don’t say we never told you.
Other beta news, in no particular order:
- Preorders are out in the wild for Swords of Legends Online and they’re asking for a $40 buy-in to get into the closed beta. It’s direct, at least.
- Curious about how things are going for Mortal Online 2? We’ve got a whole interview with the CEO of StarVault about just that.
- Fractured wants you for its spring alpha test. Yes, you. The person reading this right now. Absolutely you.
- Dual Universe has shifted its launch window to the middle of next year, which is surely somewhat disquieting for people hoping to see this sooner rather than later.
- By contrast, Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis has announced a June launch for everyone.
And with that, we ride our beta ship into the night, asking you once again to check out our list of games in testing just below and let us know if something is missing or listed incorrectly in the comments! It’s a whole thing, you know?
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.
