Palia! It exists! We got a whole preview for it, and it looks wonderful, and people will not stop telling us about it and we want it. We all want it. I want it. You want it. Everyone on staff wants it. (Note: Anyone who is reading this and does not want it, you don’t need to tell us about it in the comments. We’re good. Everyone else wants it.) It can’t happen soon enough; it looks gorgeous.
Other beta news? If we have to.
- The Cycle has kicked off its closed alpha all official-like. It’s moving forward! Hopefully testing will be less cyclical than the name implies.
- Swords of Legends Online has kicked off its second closed beta test for those who can’t get enough of swords and the legends thereof.
- Holy crap, Crowfall has an official launch date of July 9th! In a world without Palia, this would be our header! And we even have a code to get you into beta: It’s MOPCROWCODE.
- Last but not least, Bless Unleashed has actually pushed back its own PC launch based on beta feedback. More feedback! More improvements!
Whew! See anything you want in there? Maybe you’ll see something you want down in the list we have below. As always, let us know if something slipped into another test phase without us noticing; we always appreciate it!
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.
