Betawatch: Embers Adrift kicks off its backer beta

    
2
We know how this story ends.

Want to test out Embers Adrift and see how it holds up after everything the developers have hyped up over the years? You can do that now… assuming you’re a backer, at least. That’s what a backer beta means. It’s a beta for backers. If you’re not a backer, well, you’re just going to have to live without it. Sorry, friend.

You can read the other bullet points about beta news whether or not you’re our backer, for the record:

Huh. Those were a bit spicy this week, weren’t they? Sometimes you just feel spicy. Rest assured that the list down below is largely devoid of spice, but is instead constrained to just the facts about games currently in testing that we’re aware of. If something slipped into a different test phase without us noticing, you can let us know in the comments, though; that’ll spice things up.

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.
