Beta Data MMO Alpha and Beta List

Beta Data: September 4, 2015

We’ve had a huge Beta Data tidy up this week! We felt that Early Access is more of a category on its own these days so we opted to split Early Access games from those in a Pre-Alpha and Alpha state, and of course just generally check that games are still actively in development and so on. It’s good to have a spring clean once in a while, don’t you think? Anyway, there’s been a load of Beta news this week so let’s get to it.

With PAX Prime in Seattle last weekend, we learned of two new games! LawBreakers, a new team-based shooter from Cliff Bleszinski and Nexon. And Atlas Reactor, a turn-based RTS from Trion Worlds, and the first new IP from the studio in quite some time!

We also found out that Guild Wars 2‘s Heart of Thorns expansion will be launching as soon as October 23rd. What’s more, ArenaNet will be running the third invite-only WvW Borderlands stress test from September 8 – September 10.

WildStar also announced the launch date for their free-to-play transition, “WildStar: Reloaded”, and it will go live on September 29th, and Carbine have also been testing the Shade’s Eve Halloween event on the PTR so that’s another fun new thing to look forward to in the Nexus.

For those of you who quite enjoy a good vehicle combat strategy game, World of Warships will be leaving Open Beta and officially launching on September 17th.

Meanwhile, Armored Warfare kicked off Early Access 5, which continues on with your progress from Early Access 4 and will run 24 hours a day until September 20th.

Crowfall began their Pre-Alpha test, letting in a limited number of backers (from some of the higher pledge tiers, of course) to test out three of their playable characters in what is known as the Hunger Dome.

Founder’s Packs became available for Trion World’s other upcoming game, Devilian, over the weekend. And today began Alpha testing.

And in much sadder news this week, the Pokemon-like minion battle MMORPG Moonrise from Undead Labs announced that they have canceled the launch and further development of the game due to a lack of projected profitability and will be closing the servers on December 31st, 2015.

We were also saddened to hear the news of mass layoffs at Goblinworks this week, leaving just 3 developers on the development of Pathfinder Online. While they are still on target for their current Early Enrollment goals, they are currently reliant on the community’s ongoing subscriptions and are seeking a publisher to ensure that Pathfinder Online one day gets an official launch.

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