It’s another weekend of Embers Adrift beta testing, and there’s some stuff you can do ahead of that test. If you want to, of course. You could also check out the game’s most recent community show talking about mitigating overly long travel times so that you don’t feel like getting from one place to another is always a massive pain in the rear. Good talks.
Other beta news ensues:
- V Rising is adding some quality of life improvements, which will likely go over well as its sales figures are also steadily rising. People want to play vampire survival, apparently.
- Pantheon is taking a really deep look at the Monk. Really getting to know the Monk. Taking an involved, heartfelt dive into the Monk.
- The long-awaited Temtem is finally going to launch… on September 6th. That’s a bit of a ways off, but hey, at least they didn’t fool around with the date forever.
- Last but not least, The Cycle has a release date that’s nearby… very nearby. How nearby? Very. We just told you that.
All right, let’s pack it in, get our stuff together, three, two, one… wait, wrong thing. The point is that we’re moving on, but not before leaving you with our full list of games in testing just below. If you notice something that’s on the list in error, missing from the list, or has slipped into another test phase without us noticing, feel free to let us know in the comments!
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.
