Beta Data: May 22, 2015

This has been a pretty big week for Beta news, folk, so we’ll just jump right in with the big guns. Blade & Soul, the game that almost everybody thought was never going to see the light of day here in the West, was finally announced by NCSoft to be coming West! The game will be entering Closed Beta this Fall with an official launch for both North America and Europe. Another game out of South East Asia that took a fair while on a Western localization is Cabal 2 which completed its Closed Beta last Sunday, though an Open Beta date is still to be announced. Heroes of the Storm, on the other hand, is now in Open Beta with a launch due on June 2nd. While it was pretty hard to not get a key for Heroes of the Storm’s Closed Beta, if you didn’t, you can now play Blizzard’s MOBA for free. Meanwhile, the visually stunning RTS Interloper fully launched on Steam yesterday. A couple of new games entered our radar this week, also. A new sandbox MMO called Tree of Life announced that it will be going into Early Access through Steam on May 27th and from the makers of War Thunder comes a post-apocalyptic vehicle combat MMO called Crossout which is currently in Pre-Alpha but will be entering Closed Beta this Summer!

Medieval sandbox MMORPG Gloria Victis upgraded its game engine to Unity 5 successfully this week, greatly increasing the game’s optimization potential. The Repopulation announced that they are aiming to launch in Q4 2015, and hopes to get the game feature complete over the summer. Last but not least, Das Tal’s Kickstarter is still ongoing and is currently sitting at 35% funding with 19 days to go. Don’t forget to back them!

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