Beta Data: April 17, 2015

Crowfall previewed the concept art for their female Champion and talked a bit about how they’re financing their game — beginning with equity sales to fund their company initially, as well as the website, and start developing the game was a big part, then of course funds raised via crowdfunding, and later investments are also an option that they are looking into. But they also talk about how not having a PvE world and focusing on procedurally generated content reduces the funding needed immensely. Very interesting. This week has been an interesting one for Black Desert as an interview with an English fan site revealed that the Korean MMORPG is still on its way to the west. Meanwhile, the South Korean version of the game launched the Valkyrie class, a female counterpart to the Warrior. Then after last week’s Greed Monger drama, it seems MMO Interactive are moving quickly forward with a public stress test due on April 25th, and are working to bring a quality product to backers and fans alike. Hurray! Wondering what the non-combat MMO Wander are up to since they’ve been so quiet recently? Well, being so close to a public launch, they are hard at work and according to their Twitter the game should be live some time in May. Fingers crossed.

We also learned this week that Skyforge’s third closed beta test is coming next week with lots of new features for testers to check out. And Path of Exile released a bunch of information to the media this past week, announcing that they will be running a closed beta beginning April 20th for their massive upcoming expansion The Awakening, which will be the game’s fourth and largest Act to date.

It seems that the perma-death sandbox MMORPG Salem is still a thing as fans have taken over the project after a year of silence. They have slated the game’s launch for June this year. While on the topic of sandbox MMOs, the PvP MMORPG Das Tal took a poll and the results are in — they will be running a Kickstarter, probably some time in May, to further fund their game. And last but not least, great news for the return of popular 90’s space game Descent as Descent: Underground reached Kickstarter success with just 3 hours to spare — that was a pretty overjoyed livestream, for sure.

Notice anything missing? Get in touch and we’ll take a look!
