Did you feel like Gloria Victis would spend forever in an early access beta state? It sure has felt like that for a while, but the developers stepped forth this week to offer a very emphatic no to that theory. In fact, the developers are even looking forward to the specific things needed to bring the game into its launch state. We’re approaching launch, everyone! It’s going to happen! Soon.
Other beta news is also happening soon. How soon? Look down a line.
- Overwatch 2 has outlined its launch plans for October 4th, with its next beta on June 28th. No, it will not include PvE at launch as once planned. Hey, if you wanted promises fulfilled, you probably shouldn’t have gotten hyped about a Blizzard title.
- The final alpha for Ravendawn has gone live with a revamped reputation system, ensuring that you aren’t on a simple good-or-bad axis because there are three points.
- Catching up on Pantheon development? Then it’s a good thing there’s a whole rundown of development in the most recent newsletter.
- Last but not least, Palia’s developers are answering questions while restating to players that the game is a long way away from launching. So not until December at least. Probably longer.
All right, let’s all clap our hands together and say “yay, beta news happened!” Now let’s clap our hands together again before browsing our full list of games in testing just below. You can clap your hands together if you want before letting us know about anything we missed down in the comments, but it’s probably easier to type with unclapped hands. Just saying.
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.
