Betawatch: Elyon and Diablo II Resurrected kick off beta events

Ever the same.

More closed beta for Elyon? It’s more likely than you think. It’s actually certain, in fact. The game has showed off its rune attributes system as well as all six classes as the closed beta helpfully hums onward. A lot of people wanted to check this one out, so we’re curious what people thought about it if you’ve played.

More beta news, coming at you!

We should name our columns like that, actually. Hopefully you enjoyed this installment of Betas and Alphas and Early Access and games that are never going to release and stuff! You can leave your impressions of any of that stuff down in the comments if you’re so inclined! You can also let us know if something slipped into another test phase without us noticing. We’ll be all thankful and stuff.

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.

I got a free beta for elyon, but after playing gunner for a bit and getting super confused with the story and not really feeling any connection, I tried the slayer to see if it was any better, but that seemed to have a constant screenshake with every attack, so this just feels like your typical korean mmo with some garbled together story and system to cover the fact that it’s p2w.


i was beginning to wonder if MOP was purposely chooseing not to write anything about D2. iv loved every minute of the games 2 betas from last week and this week. say what you want about blizzard…but the VV division of the company at hand has done an outstanding job putting this together. and i cant wait to sink my teeth into launch and play that game for another 20 years

Diablo 2: 2, AKA “Look at this product from a time when we used to be good”


As someone who would love to play Diablo resurrected, fuck blizzard. After everything that happened I hope their company shutters.


I am curious how much interest there actually is for diablo 2 resurrected, they already annoyed a segment of old time players who were hoping to play it over Lan as they used to.

A decision they recently came back on.

Even if the current scandals were not around, i would have waited till long after launch because Warcraft 3 reforged was also suppose to be a great game they completely abandoned.
