Riders of Icarus

Blizzard is bringing the Overwatch Closed Beta test to an end next week on April 25th. An Open Beta will run between May 5th-9th though, with a head start on May 3rd for people who pre-ordered. We also saw Blizzard talking for the first time about how Overwatch had its origins in the failed Titan MMO. Very interesting!

It has been a busy week for Blizzard, however, as they also revealed Legion’s launch date: August 30th. A couple of months later than the Warcraft movie, and 14 months after World of Warcraft’s last major content patch, but a solid date we now have.

A Western release has been confirmed for Korean MMORPG Bless Online! Aeria Games will be handling the localization for North America and Europe, which is currently a work in progress.

Another week, another MMO closure. This time for indie sandbox MMORPG Factions: Origins of Malu. Development has been suspended indefinitely, though “not yet dead” meaning that it could well return in the distant future.

Medieval survival sandbox game The Black Death launched its Steam Early Access this week if that’s a game you’re interested in, now is the time to check it out.

We had almost assumed The Elder Scrolls: Legends vaporware considering the lack of updates on their website and social media outlets since its announcement at E3 in June 2015, however, we were thankfully wrong and Bethesda’s attempt at a digital card game is now in Beta!

If you have been waiting for Tree of Savior’s free-to-play launch you may be disappointed to hear that it has been delayed until mid-May due to some shenanigans over headstart packages.

Those who prefer their trees with a little more life (not sorry) will be happy to hear that Tree of Life launched their Closed Beta this week with a few updates to their character models and the overall game world which saw the map grow to four times that of its Early Access version!

Riders of Icarus also entered Closed Beta this week, a test that will run until next Thursday and unless you got lucky in one of the many giveaways around the MMO sites yesterday is accessible by invite only. We will have more on this title soon!

You can also check out Star Citizen for free this weekend as part of the PAX East celebrations.

And you may like to check out Overpower, an incredibly fun-looking arena shooter with MOBA elements that Beta Data has been following for a few months now! They launched on Steam Early Access this week so you can check it out for yourselves.

I think that wraps it up for this week’s Beta Data. Notice anything missing? Get in touch and we’ll take a look!
