Beta Data - - Your source for MMOs & MMORPGs

Beta Data: March 27, 2015

While I was off getting married, the game world continued on as usual with some exciting news from alphas, betas and crowdfunding for me to come back to.

Perhaps the biggest news of the week was Crowfall’s Kickstarter coming to an end, raising a phenomenal amount of money towards the “Throne War Simulator,” placing them at #15 in the top 20 most funded video games on Kickstarter to date.

The long-awaited sandbox MMO Factions: Origins of Malu launched early access this week over on Steam. After no less than 2 engine changes, unsuccessful crowdfunding attempts, and a name change, Origins of Malu’s battleground early access is ready for the public to dive in to. Meanwhile, the revived social anime MMORPG, Dream of Mirror Online, entered Open Beta this week with no more character wipes to come. And Skyforge launched their second Closed Beta Test and unveiled the final 13 class roster that will be available upon release. While over on their forums there has been a bit of a hubbub over continued use of the term “pay to win” (P2W) whereby it was declared that the company would not abide the term and folk who continued on the path would have their beta access revoked. Ouch. Fortunately, the damning comment has since been struck-through and retracted. Skyforge’s community Manager apologized and reopened the topic, asking for continued feedback and questions.

Guild Wars 2 revealed a bunch of information on their legendary Mastery track and how players can craft the current crop of precursors come Heart of Thorns, as well as an announcement that condition caps will be removed in the expansion, which is now going through Stress Tests with Closed Beta to arrive shortly. Blizzard released their major patch for Heroes of the Storm, bringing Sylvanas to the Blizzard MOBA’s roster of Heroes, as well as the Tomb of the Spider Queen battleground and many improvements to the UI. And finally, some good news from Daybreak this week as it was revealed by John Smedley on Twitter that H1Z1 has sold a million copies on Steam with roughly 30% of the playerbase actively playing Battle Royale.

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