So if you’re curious about crafting in Pantheon, the latest dispatch from the development team is all about building blocks. No, not that… the crafting system is not literally snapping together blocks like Legos (fine, like LEGO™ brand construction bricks), the developers are talking about the building blocks that go into crafting. The art of crafting a crafting system.
You know what? Let’s move on to other beta news.
- Overwatch 2 is going to make Doomfist all tanky and stuff and make Orisa more aggressive while keeping her tanky. Fist and spear, together at last!
- Greg Street has said that Riot’s as-yet-unnamed MMO is going great and the team is all stacked. This is probably better than being told the inverse.
- Does Profane’s latest creature reveal have four legs and a back? Yes. So obviously, it should be a mount. Why shouldn’t that happen?
- Last but not least, Mad World is sharing Alpha 6.0 patch notes and how do you get to Alpha 6.0? What is happening over there?
All right, that’s it, this isn’t… well, “fun” isn’t the word I should be using here, but the point is that this is the point when we should stop and just marinate in the list of games in testing we have just below. As always, let us know if something slipped into a new 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, nor will games that are NFT/blockchain scams; we also do not list expansions, with occasional exceptions.
