Beta Data: February 5, 2016

Fragmented

Beta news has felt a little light on the ground this week after 2 or 3 weeks of major launches and new game announcements, however, that was all in my imagination as we’ve actually got quite a bit to share in Beta Data this week!

Let’s begin with the official launch of new free to play card game, Spellweaver. Available now on Steam, Spellweaver ties in common elements of modern card games into a game of deep strategy, created by a team of just 5 people over 4 years, and it’s looking pretty awesome. Interested? We currently have a giveaway running with Dream Reactor that grants you $15 worth of in game gold!

And amazing news for The Repopulation this week as Above and Beyond Technologies announced that the troubled sandbox MMORPG would be switching to the Unreal Engine, putting an end to its troubles with the Hero Engine. While it won’t be coming back online just yet as they will need to rebuild quite a bit of the game’s code, in the meantime, the studio will be releasing a survival game based in The Repopulation’s world which will form the basis for the MMORPG. This game is called Fragmented and is definitely worth keeping an eye on.

Many of you will have been eagerly awaiting the return of the Overwatch Beta, and thankfully, Blizzard revealed that their team-based shooter will make a return to online service on February 9th with a bunch of updates and fixes.

We actually brought up Titanfall 2 a couple of weeks ago when job listings were found on the studio’s careers page but we discovered this week that EA aims to launch the sequel before the end of March, 2017.

Fans of adorable sandbox MMOs may want to check out Islet Online which became available through Steam Early Access this week at a 20% discount. The game features a living ecosystem which is effected by the player’s actions as they explore the world and build.

Shroud of the Avatar revealed the date for the game’s final character wipe. On July 28th, Release 32 will be patched in and character data wiped, and from then on, all character information will remain persistent. So for anybody who may have been waiting for this point in Shroud of the Avatar’s development? This is the date to note. The game will still be in Early Access, but you will no longer need to worry about lost progress.

The big one for MMORPG fans this week was of course the launch date reveal for Black Desert Online. Due to launch March 3rd, players have until February 26th to secure their pre-order packs before those bonuses become unavailable. In addition, sign-ups are now open for the second and final Closed Beta test and name reservations will open February 9th.

And for those of you who love the idea of a battle royale-styled survival game, you may be interested to check out The Culling, a 16-player kill-or-be-killed game announced this week from Xaviant. The game will be arriving to PC through Steam Early Access on March 8th and it certainly looks intriguing.

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