Do you remember Noah’s Heart? Probably not; the last we heard about it was that the game was going to be entering beta testing over the course of the summer, something that did not happen. But that beta testing is finally happening next week, from December 21st through the 27th, and there’s a whole trailer to watch too. If you want a reason to dodge your family over the holidays, there you go!
Other beta news is here and not dodging anything:
- Yep, it turns out Fractured is now being published by Gamigo. Not everyone is exactly hype about this fact, as you can see from the comments.
- If you hate to eat and drink and video games, Palia is confirming that it’ll merely be a nicety in the game when it’s playable.
- War of Dragnorox! Live events, no auction house, no player magic, something something hardcore, something something new game.
- Last but not least, Myth of Empires is going to court over its sudden yoinking from Steam. As we mentioned last week, this industry is weird.
In summary… I forgot what we were talking about. Let’s just head on down to the list of games currently in testing, hmm? There’s plenty to talk about there. Maybe there’s even something that’s skipped into a new test phase; then you could talk about that and let us 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.
