Quinfall is a new MMORPG on the way that either has a big issue with the number five or people named Quin, which may or may not include Dr. Michaela Quinn. On that matter, the title is silent. On the matter of size, the developers are already promising a big world that may be getting somewhat overpromised, but they’re also not planning player funding, so that’s a good thing. We’ll forgive them a bit of overenthusiastic promising. For now.
Other beta news? Yes. We can do that.
- Were you looking for more of The Crew? Well, here comes The Crew Motorfest, so fest your motors! Wait, fest isn’t a verb. Should fest be a verb? Let me know in the comments.
- Former members of DICE are working together to build a co-op RPG for small populations, so like a survivalbox but not. That’s pretty cool. Do you think that’s cool? Let me know in the comments.
- Fractured Online is now aiming to be back online for players in March on new servers. Didn’t this game deserve better? Let me know in the comments.
- Last but not least, Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff has downsized its team, unfortunately. Let me know how you’re sad about it in the comments.
And now you may descend to the comments, wherein I have asked you to let me know about many things. In addition to those things, I would also love if you let me know about anything that has slipped into another test phase without us noticing. That’s just kind of you.
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.
