Betawatch: Book of Travels disambiguates content and features

Have you tried to find the difference between content and features in Book of Travels? According to a new dispatch from the team on the matter, players need to realize that the reality is that features are themselves content once you engage with them, so in summary there’s plenty to do in the game and it’s not lacking in content at all. Don’t you feel mollified? No? Hang on, there’s a chart somewhere to show how mollified you should be.

While we look for the chart, let’s check in on a bit of additional beta news before the year ends:

That’s it, we are done with beta news for 2022. Pretty sure nothing is going to happen on New Year’s Eve, and if it does, we are going to politely ignore it. Everyone can just politely read our list down below for the games we know of in testing at this time. And if something swapped to another test status without us noticing, well, let us know in the comments, huh? See you on the other side.

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 inĀ 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.
