Betawatch: Dual Universe talks up Athena as its last pre-launch patch

I demand to pay more for this.

Athena, you’ve gotta see her. Or at least what the update bearing her name means for Dual Universe, which is promising that this is the last major update before launch. Does that mean launch is imminent? Maybe! But it definitely means those graphical improvements are worth scoping out.

Further beta news? You know what, yeah. You can have more beta news. ‘Cause we’re pals.

And there we go! See? We’re pals. Pals provide you updates on betas. Pals provide you with lists of games in testing just below. And if you also consider us your pals, you can let us know if something slipped into a new test phase without us noticing it. That’s what pals do! Good pals.

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, nor will games that are NFT/blockchain scams; we also do not list expansions, with occasional exceptions.

Yes, MMO gamers, you too can perform the unpaid quality-control work otherwise known as game testing! Check out Massively Overpowered’s Betawatch every week for a run-down of MMOs that are still on the road to launch, even if they appear to have set up a permanent residence in a shed called early access.
