Aw yeah, we’re into the crafting and gathering previews for Corepunk. That’s when you know the game is going somewhere, folks. Showing you a big dude with a sword trying to slice up some other big dude with a sword? That’s just basic stuff. But showing you a buff orc lady picking flowers? That’s the real meat. That’s what we like to see. That is our jam.
Is other beta news your jam? Well, then, good times:
- Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we try to find out which of Palia’s 23 signature NPCs are available for romance. Of course, the PCs are another matter! Imagine a saucy wink here.
- Chronicles of Elyria is very sorry that its Discord turned toxic and promises Kingdom of Elyria will be available to test again soon. Who would imagine that a game where you pay $10,000 to literally lord over people could turn toxic?
- Dune Awakening shows off how to survive on Arrakis. While you may wish to walk without rhythm, you can indeed have rhythm while watching the video.
- Last but not least, Ubisoft promises that it has Skull and Bones sitting in a very improved state now. Sure, Jan.
If you all will excuse me, I’m very busy and need to watch those gathering videos again. For reasons. I will not explain myself to you. I will explain that you can check out our full list of games in testing just below, and if you notice something skipped test phases without us noticing, we love it if you let us know in the comments. You can even talk about betas you’re participating in! We like hearing what you have to say.
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.
