Beta Data: February 12, 2016

The Latest Beta News

Tracer Overwatch

Overwatch

We’re all ready for Spring this week at MMOGames, but the MMO world doesn’t fail us with yet more lovely Beta news and new game announcements to gobble up while we wait for the sun to return.

And of course the return of the Overwatch Beta was welcomed with open arms this week. Bringing new maps, an actual progression system, a new game mode, a hoard of character skins, and a bunch of balance changes, players lucky enough to have access to Overwatch at this time have been spoiled for choice! But please remember that there are no giveaways or keys, the only way you can get into this Beta is if Blizzard flags your account. The best way to check is to keep an eye on your Battle net account.

The Division also gave us some exciting news this week with the confirmation of their Open Beta which will begin on February 18th for Xbox One players and February 19th for everybody else. This Beta comes with no restrictions and everybody who wants to will be able to play the game for free until it ends February 21st ahead of its launch of March 8th.

Jagex brought Chronicle: Runescape Legends Closed Beta to an end to prepare for the card game’s Open Beta on March 16th. This will bring new game modes, progression, customization, playable Legends and plenty more! Also people who did play in the Closed Beta will not only receive an exclusive card back, title, and emblem for their time, but also early access to the Open Beta.

Name reservations opened up for Black Desert Online this week for players with pre-order packages. Daum Games also revealed a bunch of details surrounding the upcoming Closed Beta so do be sure to check these out to see what new stuff is coming!

One of City of Heroes’ spiritual successors Valiance Online opened up its Pre-Alpha for public testing this week. Obviously this is a very early version of the game, but it is a great opportunity for those who want to be a part of the game’s development.

If you are interested in checking out a game before you back it on Kickstarter you’ll be happy to hear that Overpower, the MOBA which combines MMORPG progression with shooter mechanics minus the grind, has opened up a playable demo through its Kickstarter page, so do check that out because it actually looks like a lot of fun.

We found ourselves getting particularly excited this week over the news that the Korean MMORPG Bless Online has confirmed that it will be launching in the West. The current rumor is that Daum Games will be publishing it, which could be really interesting if it proves to be true.

And in Daybreak news, H1Z1 revealed this week that it will in fact be splitting in two come February 17th. Just Survive and King of the Kill, the two titles for the now separate games, will no longer become free-to-play when they leave early access but will in fact cost $19.99 each. Players who already own H1Z1 will receive access to both games at no additional cost so it is recommended that you pick it up before February 16th if you plan to play at all.

Last but not least, the new games we heard about this week!

  • While it has long been rumored, Bungie confirmed this week that Destiny will indeed be getting a sequel in 2017.
  • Gamesco revealed their very first game title in new survival MMO Grimm: Dark Legacy, a game based on the popular NBC TV show.
  • Behaviour Interactive announced a new asymmetrical survival horror game, similar to the likes of Evolve and Friday the 13th, in Dead By Daylight.
  • And En Masse Entertainment, NA publisher of Tera, revealed Battleplans, an upcoming real-time strategy game coming to PC and mobile in Spring.

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